A Pizza Recipe To Welcome Spring.

I know you’re here to get the recipe for this delicious pea and prosciutto pizza with white pizza sauce, but first can we just talk about the weather? I’m so over this crazy winter, and am just sitting around counting down the days until we finally hit 60° for the first time this year!

I know I’m not alone. There are so many spring recipes I’m just dying to whip up, if only our weather would cooperate already! Recipes like this Spring Cobb Salad or Spring Asparagus Frittata With Crème Fraîche have me dreaming of warmer days. With daylight savings always comes a shift in what I make for dinner, and until it’s warm enough outside to grill, you’ll find me making lots of homemade pizza recipes with all sorts of springy toppings to ease us into the next season. If you need this pizza to be gluten free, just make it with our homemade gluten free pizza dough!

How Do You Make Pea and Prosciutto Pizza?

This homemade pizza recipe comes together quickly thanks to one of our all time favorite dinner time hacks: store bought pizza dough! Of course, if you have time you can always make the dough yourself, but there’s no shame in letting someone else do the work for you!

Let’s see how easy this prosciutto pizza is to make!

  1. Purchase the special ingredients you need for this dish: store bought pizza dough, parmesan, prosciutto, goat cheese, and fresh or frozen peas.
  2. Make a quick white sauce by melting butter, sauteing garlic, sprinkling flour, and adding some milk and seasoning.
  3. Roll the dough and add the toppings.
  4. Bake the pizza, eat and enjoy with friends and family.
  5. Thank the Lord that spring is here at last!

Tips For Making This Spring Pizza:

  • Whether you buy store bought pizza dough or make your own, room temperature pizza dough will be much easier to work with, so we recommend letting your dough sit on the counter for at least an hour before working with it.
  • Make your white pizza sauce ahead of time. It will keep for a few days in the refrigerator and makes throwing this pizza together a cinch thanks to the extra meal prep!
  • Don’t thaw your frozen peas! If you add the peas to the pizza while they are still frozen, they will cook through in the oven, but will be prettier on the pizza (i.e. they won’t get all shrively).
  • Add extra greens! Adding some pea shoots or arugula to the pizza after it’s been baked adds that additional bite of freshness and is a nice contrast to the rich and salty cheeses.

How To Make Pizza With Store Bought Dough:

Step 1. When you’re ready to make your homemade pizza recipe, you’ll want to first lightly flour a large cutting board or the surface of your clean counter. Everyone loves this part, so we encourage you to invite your kids, spouse, or dinner guests to grab an apron!

Step 2. Now that everyone is ready, you’re going to want to roll or stretch the dough. My kids LOVE to help by rolling the dough, although I prefer stretching it into a circle, because it yields a more fluffy and tender crust.

Step 3. Prepare a rimmed baking sheet, ventilated pizza pan, or grab your pizza stone! Transfer the stretched dough onto your surface of choice and grab those toppings for your prosciutto pizza!

Step 4. Add your toppings and bake!

Where Can I Buy The Best Store Bought Pizza Dough?

Depending on what else is on my shopping list, I will typically grab the dough for my homemade pizza recipe at Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s. However, I recently discovered that our local pizza restaurant will also sell just the dough by itself. Because this dough comes all rolled out and ready to go, it gets my vote for the best store bought pizza dough! Ask around at your local pizza shops to see if anyone offers the same sweet deal! If not, no worries...any brand will work. (Even Winco sells a great prepared dough!)

Pea and Prosciutto Pizza

  • Serves: 4
  • Prep Time:  10 min
  • Cook Time:  25 min
  • Calories: 438


White Pizza Sauce

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour, plus more for pizza dough
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • ¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for serving


  • ¾ pound store-bought or homemade pizza dough, room temperature
  • ¼ cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 3 ounces prosciutto, thinly sliced, torn into pieces
  • 2 ounces goat cheese, crumbled (about ½ cup)
  • 1 handful pea shoots or arugula (optional)


  1. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Sprinkle the flour over melted butter and whisk until combined. When the sauce starts to bubble and smell slightly nutty, slowly whisk in the milk. Add in the garlic, salt, and pepper and continue whisking over medium-low heat until the sauce thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon. Stir in the Parmesan and remove from heat.

  2. Preheat the oven to 450°F with a rack in the center position.

  3. Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper or prepare a pizza stone by placing it in the oven. On a lightly floured surface, stretch or roll the dough into a circle about 12-inch in diameter, roughly ½-inch thick. Transfer the dough to the prepared baking sheet or preheated pizza stone.

  4. Spoon the sauce onto dough and spread into an even layer, leaving 1-inch of crust exposed around the edges. Top evenly with peas, prosciutto, and goat cheese.

  5. Place the pizza in the oven until the edges are golden brown and the center of the crust is cooked through, about 12-15 minutes.

  6. Remove from the oven, sprinkle with extra Parmesan and pea shoots or arugula, if using. Cut into 8 pieces, serve warm.
