Prosciutto, Italian Sausage, Pancetta, Mushroom Garlic Pizza

I went to an Italian restaurant over the weekend and had a prosciutto thin crust pizza and was inspired to make my own.  It's real simple, quick and easy to make!  You can substitute the pancetta or even the prosciutto for ham instead.  For a vegetarian pizza you can omit the meat and put all kinds of mushroom!  Instead of making the pizza dough from scratch I used a store-bought garlic naan that came in two pieces. 

Prosciutto, Italian Sausage, Pancetta, Mushroom Garlic Pizza
Serves 3-4.

1 Italian sausage, casing removed 

3-4 slices of prosciutto, divided
3 slices of pancetta, divided
2 T. olive oil
1 c. mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/4 c. tomato basil marinara sauce

2 mushrooms, sliced
2 garlic naan or plain


Preheat oven 400 F degrees. 

1.  In the meantime, grab a skillet over medium high heat with a drop of olive oil, remove the sausage casing and brown the italian sausage into chunks.  Set aside in a bowl for later.

2.  Place the naan on the baking sheet or foil.  Brush olive oil on the bottom of each naan, lightly.  Grab a large spoon and spread the marinara tomato sauce on each naan. 

3.  Sprinkle mozzarella over the marinara sauce, then add the pancetta, prosciutto, cooked ground italian sausage and mushroom sparingly on top.  Finally finish it off with more shredded mozzarella. 

If you don't have pancetta or prosciutto you can substitute for ham instead.

4.  Put your fully assembled naan-pizza into the preheated oven and bake for 15 minutes.  Broil the top for 5 minutes, to get that nice golden crisp texture and color.

5.  Using a pizza cutter, cut into 6 pieces.  Serve while hot with grated parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes.
