Pizza Stuffed with Mascarpone, Salami Milano, Bresaola and Parma Ham

About This Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious pork recipe with a difference? If you are, you’ve found it! Here’s my pizza stuffed with mascarpone, salami milano, bresaola and parma ham for you to enjoy.

Meat, meat and more meat – I love this pizza. The use of three different hams with cheese is delicious. Making that first cut into the pizza and enjoying all the flavours oozing out is worth any amount of time you spent preparing it. Picture after a hard day’s work eating this dish with a large glass of red wine – it’s the perfect ending to any day. If you prefer, add in mozzarella to get that extra gooey cheesy flavour.

Feast your eyes on the finest pizza stuffed with mascarpone, salami milano, bresaola and parma ham! It’s straightforward and fun to make this great dish. Simply follow the instructions below and get the perfect result.

Step By Step

  1. Brush a large baking tray and the inside of a large bowl with oil.
  2. To prepare the dough, put the flour, yeast and salt into a large bowl, make a well in the centre and pour in the water with 1 tablespoon of oil. Use a wooden spoon to mix everything together to create a wet dough.
  3. Turn out the dough onto a well-floured surface and work it with your hands for about 5 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Place in the oiled bowl, brush the top with a little oil and cover with clingfilm. Leave to rest at room temperature for 25 minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6.
  5. Once rested, turn out the dough onto a well-floured surface and divide it into two equal halves. Use your hands to push each one out from the centre, to create 2 round discs about 20cm in diameter.
  6. Place 1 disc on the oiled baking tray. Spread the mascarpone cheese on top of the pizza using the back of a tablespoon, and season with salt and pepper. Top with the salami, bresaola and Parma ham, distributing the meats evenly.
  7. Gently lift the second disc and place it on top of the filled one. Bring together the edges to enclose the filling. Pinch to seal and turn over the edges to create a rope-like effect.
  8. Brush the surface of the filled pizza disc with oil. Cook in the middle of the oven for 18 minutes, until golden brown. Serve hot with a big glass of Italian dry red wine.

Once you’re done, simply sit back and enjoy your pizza stuffed with mascarpone, salami milano, bresaola and parma ham and don’t forget to check out other great authentic Italian recipes including great antipasti recipes, Italian pasta recipes, Italian soup recipes, Italian beef dishes and authentic pizza recipes.

Bucatini al pesto sicilianoBucatini with Sicilian Pesto

Classic pesto is a specialty of Liguria, in northwestern Italy. However, Sicilians have their own equally delicious, lesser-known version – just a few additional ingredients take it in an entirely new and exciting direction. In this recipe I’ve used bucatini pasta, which is basically a thicker version of spaghetti with a hole all the way through, but of course pasta of any shape will be fine.

PastieraRaspberry & Orange Baked Cheesecake

This is quite an old-fashioned recipe from my home patch, and I must admit, I wasn’t a huge fan of it when growing up (probably because of all the fruit and lack of chocolate), but now I really appreciate all the flavours and how well they work together. My grandfather, Giovanni, used to make this at Easter and now I carry on the tradition.

Tonno Scue’ Scue’Seared Tuna Steak with Courgettes and Capers

If you ever have the chance to visit the town where I was born, Torre del Greco, you will soon realise that every restaurant in town serves this dish. Southern Italian people, me included, are absolutely crazy about tuna. If you try to translate ‘tonno scue’ scue’ into English, it would be ‘tuna made with no effort’. The reason it is called this is because the few ingredients used are put...

Bruschetta Fai Da TeBuild Your Own Beef Bruschetta

Half the pleasure of food is being able to enjoy it with your friends and family. I love dishes that can be placed in the centre of the table so that everybody can help themselves. It's the most social form of eating and it means I'm not stuck in the kitchen! This recipes cooks the beef from scratch, but if you have any leftover roast beef from a Sunday roast by all means use that.

Conchigle Rigate PiccantiShell Pasta With Spicy Pork And Tomato Sauce

I love this shape of pasta and this sauce is perfect for it. The delicate taste of the pork with the strong flavours of the chilli, olives and sun-dried tomatoes is a match made in heaven. I know that most people add cheese to pasta sauces but please don’t to this one. It really doesn't need it and will actually ruin the natural flavours of the ingredients. If you fancy, substitute the conchiglie...
