Pancetta & Pesto Pizza

I made this one on April 14, 2011. It was pretty good but requires some tweaking. Next time I’ll use more pancetta.

  • 1 whole wheat pizza dough (Trader Joe’s)
  • 2 tablespoons pesto sauce, approximately (I used Trader Joe’s)
  • 2 tablespoons black olives, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons tomatoes, diced (I used canned, drained diced tomatoes because that’s all I had on hand; sundried tomatoes  would be good)
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup pancetta, diced (totally guessed on quantity…it was a package)
  1. Prepare pizza dough per package directions, spreading on pizza pan and allowing to rest.
  2. Spread pesto sauce over pizza dough.
  3. Sprinkle with sliced olives, shredded mozzarella, diced tomatoes and pancetta.
  4. Bake 450 degrees for 12 minutes or until pizza dough is cooked through and cheese is melted.

RECOMMENDATIONS: add some oregano; use more mozzarella cheese and use entire package of pancetta. Grate some parmesan cheese over pizza prior to baking.
