Prep time:20 mins

Cook time:18 mins

Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 60g butter
  • 3 red onion, cut into wedges
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • Pizza Base:
  • 1½ cups self raising flour
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ cup milk
  • Topping:
  • 1/3 cup Leggo’s Tomato Paste
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 8 thin slices prosciutto, torn into pieces
  • 125g fresh mozzarella cheese torn into pieces
  • Fresh parsley leaves, for garnish

Instructions

Step 1

Heat butter over a medium low heat in a frypan and add onion. Cook for 5 minutes or until softened, turning occasionally. Sprinkle over brown sugar and balsamic vinegar and cook for a further 3 minutes or until onions are glazed and caramelised. Set aside and allow to cool slightly.

Step 2

Meanwhile, combine flour and salt in a large bowl and make a well in the centre. In a separate bowl, whisk together egg, olive oil and milk. Stir into dry ingredients until it forms a soft dough. Turn mixture onto a floured surface and knead lightly. Divide the dough into 2 and roll out into rough ovals. Place onto lightly oil oven trays.

Step 3

Combine Leggo’s Tomato Paste and balsamic vinegar and spread ½ the mixture over each pizza base. Top with prosciutto and caramelised onion, drizzling with any remaining pan juices from the onions. Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for 10 minutes or until base is cooked and prosciutto is crispy.

Step 4

Top with mozzarella and allow the pizza to sit for 1-2 minutes or until cheese starts to melt. Garnish with parsley and serve.

Tasty Tip!

The rate that flour absorbs water can differ so check the dough in Step 1 and add a little chilled water if necessary.
