Personal size pizzas on a baking sheet with prosciutto

Sunday evenings around our house are normally pretty laid back. We’re usually watching a little football, grabbing a quick snack, and simply soaking in the last few hours of our weekend. One of our favorite Sunday evening meals is homemade pizza. Normally, I like to make my own pizza dough because I love the smell of the fresh yeast bread baking, but I really liked the convenience of using the pita bread in this recipe. Brushing a teaspoon of olive oil on top of each crust (pita) makes them bake up very nicely. The semi-homemade pizza sauce is simply a cup of crushed grape tomatoes (take out some frustration and crush them up with your bare hands!) mixed with some jarred pasta sauce.

Spread the crushed tomato mixture on the pita crusts and top with thin slices of prosciutto to completely cover the surface. Bake this in a 425-degree oven for about 10 minutes or until the prosciutto begins to crisp up. When that’s all done, top each pita pizza with a simple arugula and parmesan salad, drizzle with balsamic vinegar, and dig in!
