Pizza Volante ai Salumi
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.

Fragole, Amaretto e MandorleStrawberries and Almonds with Amaretto Liqueur and Greek Yoghurt

Strawberries are on sale in supermarkets all year round but more often than not, the flavour isn't good unless they are in season. This recipe is perfect for those months when the berries are lacking their full taste and sweetness, as the Amaretto and honey add that extra something the fruit needs. This is a lovely refreshing dessert that will look really impressive if served in cocktail glasses.

Saltimbocca di TacchinoTurkey Saltimbocca with Sage and Parma Ham

For anyone who loves turkey but is bored with the traditional ways of cooking it, you have just found the recipe that you need. In my house we have saltimbocca at least once a week because it’s easy to prepare and most importantly full of flavour. You can definitely try it with chicken breasts and, if you don’t like Parma ham, use pancetta. In the event that you don’t have Marsala wine, a good...

Tagliatelle con Salsicce e PorciniTagliatelle with Sausages, Rosemary and Porcini Mushrooms

I love good-quality sausages so this recipe is definitely in my top ten. My grandfather used to make this dish for me when I was a boy but he used a tomato passata instead of the cream that I have introduced. I wish he could have tasted my version as I know I would have got a huge cuddle for this one – he would have loved it and I know that you will too. For those of you who don’t like mushrooms,...

Gnocchi di zuccaPotato and roasted pumpkin gnocchi

Gnocchi is a firm favourite of the ladies in my life – my wife and my daughter Mia. Rather than just preparing the traditional plain gnocchi with a tomato-and-cheese-based sauce all the time, I wanted to try and create gnocchi that had so much flavour in their own right that a sauce wasn't even needed. This is what I came up with. I have also tried replacing the pumpkin with butternut squash,...

Bruschetta Di Fave e MentaBroad Beans and Fresh Mint Bruschetta

Bruschetta is definitely one of the main dishes for an Italian antipasti. The freshness of the mint together with the broad beans is a fantastic combination that will fill you up and yet won’t leave you feeling heavy. You can substitute the broad beans with butter beans and if you don’t have fresh mint, use fresh leaf parsley or chives.

CuccioloneChocolate Ice Cream Sandwich

Chocolate ice cream sandwiched between two cookies – what more do you need from life?! Kids love cucciolone, and in my experience they really enjoy getting involved in making them too. You can use any cookies you like for cucciolone. Here I used choc chip cookies, which worked very well. I’ve also tried the same recipe with peanut and caramel cookies and it was delicious.
