This is one of those recipes that tastes absolutely fantastic but is so simple and quick to make, and will really satisfy those darned pizza cravings. However, you’ll be thrilled to know that you can feel pretty virtuous eating it as we can very nearly call this a healthy pizza! Made with a wholemeal flour mix, no yeast, and rather than a greasy cheese topping it’s finished with shavings of fresh Grana Padano, lots of peppery rocket and just one slice of Prosciutto di San Daniele. It’s mighty fine, in my opinion.

These super easy Prosciutto di San Daniele, Grana Padano and rocket flatbread pizzas make a great lunch option, or a healthy alternative to our traditional Friday night pizza, the base is so quick to make, less messy than traditional pizza dough and is also yeast free (great for those that can’t have it) and there is no proving time which means it’s ready to use once you’ve made the flatbread pizzas topping. Again, no nasties in the tomato sauce topping, and it can easily be jazzed up with some chilli flakes or anchovies (which would go beautifully with the prosciutto). I made two bigger pizzas, one per hungry person or altogether enough for 3 or 4, they could be made smaller too for mini pizzas and little tummies.

The inspiration behind the recipe was a mix of my aunt and uncle’s tasty pizzas which they make in their restaurants and the lovely package of Prosciutto di San Daniele and Grana Padano I was sent.

Notes
Methods include different ways of cooking the flatbreads but they all still only take a few minutes.
Add a few chilli flakes to the tomato topping if you like a little heat to your pizzas.
Melted anchovies added to the tomato topping would also enhance the flavours of the prosciutto and grana padana
