Pizza-Style Focaccia from Morandi
Total time: 25 minutes
  • 10 ounce pizza dough
  • 4 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup stracchino cheese
  • 1/4 pound proscuitto
  • 1 cup arugula
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  1. Lightly brush pizza dough with 2 tbsp olive oil. Press and roll out the dough into a long, flat shape about 1/2 inch thick, 5 inches wide and 14 inches long.
  2. Place on the grill perpendicular to the grill grates. Grill on medium heat for 4-5 minutes, until the bottom is light golden brown and dark grill marks appear. Flip to the other side and grill for another 3-4 minutes until both sides are a light golden brown color.
  3. Transfer to a sheet pan and spread the Stracchino cheese over the dough. Place the pan in the oven and broil for 4-5 minutes, until cheese has melted.
  4. Top with the proscuitto and arugula. Sprinkle parmesan over it and lightly drizzle on the rest of the olive oil.
