Ingredients

  • 1 cup grated Parmesan
  • 2 eggs
  • Crushed black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more for topping
  • 3 thick slices pancetta, cut into 1/3-inch cubes
  • 1 ball your favorite pizza dough
  • All-purpose flour, for dusting
  • 2 ounces mozzarella, shredded
  • Grated pecorino cheese

Directions

Special equipment: Pizza stone

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F with a pizza stone on the highest rack. 

Make the egg cream by whisking together the Parmesan, eggs and a big sprinkle of black pepper until thick and foamy. 

Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the pancetta. Cook over high heat until crunchy and fragrant, about 6 minutes. 

Stretch the dough on a floured work surface to an 11-inch circle. Spoon the egg cream onto the center of the pizza and spread over the dough with a spoon. Evenly distribute the pancetta on top and sprinkle over the mozzarella. 

Transfer the dough onto the pizza stone and bake until puffy, about 6 minutes, then turn on the broiler and broil until the crust takes on some color, 45 seconds. 

Remove the pizza and top with a sprinkle of pecorino, more crushed black pepper and a swirl of olive oil.
