Prosciutto, Mascarpone, and Spinach Pizza with Balsamic Glaze
Based on a pizza at Postrio Restaurant, a Wolfgang Puck restaurant
Yields two 8-inch pizzas
1 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 tablespoon butter
1 pound pizza dough, homemade or ready-made
6 ounces mascarpone cheese
6 ounces prosciutto
2 handfuls spinach leaves
drizzle of truffle oil
In a sauce pan, combine the balsamic vinegar and sugar and cook on medium high heat, stirring frequently to dissolve sugar. Continue to heat and stir occasionally and reduce by 1/3. Turn off heat and add butter and stir until melted. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Roll out half of the dough on a floured surface until thin, and about 8-inches around. Put dough on a pizza stone or sheet pan. Spread half the mascarpone evenly on the dough. Layer with half of the prosciutto. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove from oven and add a handful of spinach leaves. Return to oven for another 1-2 minutes until mascarpone is bubbly and the dough is golden brown.
Remove from oven and drizzle with half of the balsamic glaze and a few drops of truffle oil.
