1 cup warm water
3 cups all-purpose flour

3 ounces prosciutto, cut in small strips
8 ounces fresh mozzarella, sliced
4 ounces cremini mushrooms, sliced

The Dough:

2. Punch down the dough and stretch or roll it out onto your pizza pan.

3. Spread the tomato sauce evenly on top of the dough then sprinkle on the torn basil leaves. Evenly distribute the mozzarella slices on top of the sauce then add the remaining toppings.
