Ingredients

1 tablespoon butter

1 large leek, white and light green parts only, sliced thin (about 2 cups) 

2 cups sliced mushrooms

Salt and pepper 

Flour, for dusting 

1/2 pound prepared pizza dough 

1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil 

3/4 cup grated Parmesan 

4 to 6 very thin slices prosciutto 

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to its highest setting (500 degrees F). Preheat a cast-iron grill pan to medium heat.
  2. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the leeks and saute for about 4 minutes. Add the mushrooms and saute for another 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  3. Lightly flour a cutting board and roll out the pizza dough into an oval shape that will fit the grill pan. Coat the preheated grill pan with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Brush the dough with 2 teaspoons olive oil and place it, oiled-side down, on the grill pan¿the dough will start to bubble as it cooks. Cook until grill marks form, 3 to 5 minutes; flip, and continue cooking on the reverse side until grill marks form and the dough has stiffened, about 3 minutes.
  4. Remove the pizza to a baking sheet, top with the mushrooms-leek mixture and sprinkle with the cheese. Place in the oven and cook until the cheeses melts, 5 to 7 minutes depending on how hot your oven is.
  5. Remove the pizza from the oven and add the prosciutto. Slice into small bites and serve.
