For the Pizza Dough

Preparation

For the Pizza

Step 1:

Pre-heat grill. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to desired thickness, recommended 8-12” diameter for grilling.

Step 2:

Spray with Bertolli Extra Light Tasting Olive Oil on both sides and place the dough on the grill. Cook 2 minutes per side or until the dough is cooked through and you have reached desired char.

Step 3:

Remove and set aside. While crust is still warm, top with arugula, prosciutto and Grana Padano cheese.

Step 4:

Drizzle with Bertolli Extra Virgin Olive Oil and sprinkle with cracked pepper and sea salt. Slice and enjoy!

For the Pizza Dough

Step 1:

In the bowl of a food processor with metal blade, combine the flour, yeast, and salt.

Step 2:

Combine the water and olive oil in a liquid measuring cup.

Step 3:

With the processor running, add the liquid in a thin stream.

Step 4:

Process until the dough is smooth and elastic, about 90 seconds.

Step 5:

Then knead the dough by hand for a few turns.

Step 6:

Place the dough in a lightly-oiled bowl and let rise at room temperature for about 1.5 hours, until doubled in bulk.

Step 7:

Divide the dough into two pieces. Shape each piece into a ball and place onto a lightly-floured, parchment-lined baking sheet.

Step 8:

Cover with plastic that has been lightly sprayed with olive oil spray. Refrigerate for 4-12 hours.
