One of the things I really loved about living in Italy was going out for pizza. Where I lived, and I’m sure in most of the rest of Italy, the pizza was not only delicious but also relatively inexpensive, so it never took much to persuade me to head out to a pizzeria rather than have dinner at home.
Of all the pizzas I’ve tried, this has to be my favourite. Prosciutto, rocket and Parmesan or Grana Padano is a classic combination that you’ll find on pizza menus throughout Italy. The added Gorgonzola or Dolcelatte adds another level of flavour that’s really hard to beat. I know blue cheese is a bit of a Marmite ingredient, but if you’re a fan, I’m sure you’ll love this. The fresh dough in this recipe really sets these pizzas apart from shop-bought alternatives. If you haven’t made your own dough before, you’ll be amazed at how quick and easy it is.
I think the perfect drink to have with pizza is an ice-cold Italian beer. In Sardinia, my beer of choice was usually Ichnusa, the local favourite, but over here in the UK, I’d normally reach for a Peroni or a Moretti.
