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.

Tranci di pesce spada con patate saltate e gremolataSwordfish Steaks & Sautéed Potatoes with Gremolata

I cooked this dish overlooking the beach at Pescoluse, on the Puglian coast. It’s known as the Maldives of Salento and is a hidden paradise. I used swordfish, but tuna would work well too. Gremolata is a dressing of raw chopped garlic, parsley and lemon zest. It is usually sprinkled over meats, such as osso bucco or carpaccio, but it also makes a great garnish for grilled fish. Always make sure you...

Crostatine Piccanti di Asparagi, Ricotta e ParmigianoAsparagus, Ricotta, Chilli and Parmesan Tartlets

Asparagus is one of the great delicacies of the vegetable world, and my asparagus tartlets quite rightly make it centre of attention. It is cooked very briefly, then plunged into cold water to retain its texture and bright green colour. You can use pecorino cheese rather than Parmesan if you like a saltier flavour.

Spaghettini alle cozze, pomodorini e vino biancoSpaghettini with Mussels, Cherry Tomatoes & White Wine

I love recipes that require just a few good-quality ingredients and are simple to make yet really have the ‘wow factor’, such as this pasta dish with mussels. You don’t have to use the bottarga - the dish stands alone without it - but a Sardinian cook would almost certainly grate it over the top of the finished dish.

Ciambelline al limone e vino biancoLemon & White Wine Biscuits

A speciality of northern Italy, these delicious biscuits are often served as an Easter treat. I have tried them with red wine and they work well too. If you have any biscuits left over, store them in an airtight container – they will last up to a week. Serve with a dessert wine.

Spaghetti ai Carciofi, Radicchio, Piselli e Vino BiancoSpaghetti with Artichokes, Radicchio, Peas and White Wine

Perfect for a midweek supper, this dish is quick and easy to make and low-fat too. Radicchio is very popular in Italy, particularly in the north, where it grows mainly in the Veneto region. Prized for the rich red colour and slightly bitter flavour of its leaves, radicchio is also a rich source of vitamin K.

Pizza spessa con acciughe, olive e capperiDeep Pan Pizza With Anchovy, Olive & Caper Topping

Sicily is the original home of the deep-pan pizza. A popular dish, it is usually cooked in large rectangular tins and sold by the weight. Pizzas in Sicily vary according to the region, with each area having its own recipes and traditions, and this type (known in Sicily as sfinciuni) originated in western Sicily, in the province of Palermo. I absolutely love the combination of anchovies,...
