Gorgonzola Cheese, Prosciutto & Rocket Pizza

I went on a short trip to Rome recently and tried this combination of ingredients on a Pizza. I fell instantly in love. The flavour was amazing.

So naturally I ran home to try it for myself. I followed Paul Hollywood’s pizza dough recipe and added extra toppings that I thought would be great like mushrooms and onions.

I have decided these additional ingredients just caused a distraction in taste and next time I will just make it as described by the Italian menu.
