Star Shaped Pizza

45min Ingredients for 4 servings

1 portion basic pizza dough (for two large pizzas)

1 portion basic tomato sauce

7 ounces Castello Double Crème White, cut into small pieces

1 3/4 cups potatoes, cubed

1 tablespoon olive oil

Salt and ground pepper

2 small red onions, cut into rings

16 slices of prosciutto

2 tablespoons fresh rosemary

1 egg yolk beaten with 1 tablespoon water

Flat leaf parsley, chopped

Star Shaped Pizza


Prepare the pizza dough according to the instructions. Combine the potatoes with the olive oil, salt, pepper and rosemary. Bake the potatoes in the oven at 400°F for about 30 minutes or until tender.

Roll out the dough into a circle on a floured surface. Carefully move the dough onto a piece of baking parchment. Make 8 cuts in the dough all the way around, from the outer edge of the dough in towards the center. Each cut should be about 2-inches long and should not extend all the way to the center. Then, make 8 small cuts about 3/4-inch long from the center of the dough out towards the edge. Spread tomato sauce over the part of the pizza base that has not been cut through. Arrange the potatoes, red onions, prosciutto and cheese in a circle on top of tomato sauce.

Starting from the outer edge of the dough, lift up each corner where you made the cuts.  Fold the corners toward each other so they partly cover the filling and form a triangle. Then, lift up the corners of the dough along the cuts in the center, folding each one up and out to cover the filling. Preheat the oven to 475°F and put an empty roasting pan in the oven. 

Carefully move the pizza on the baking parchment into the hot roasting pan. Brush the pizza with egg yolk and bake in the middle of the oven at 450°F for about 20 minutes, or until crispy and golden.

Sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley and serve.
