Pizza with Le Gruyère and Ham

Pizza with Le Gruyère and Ham

Serves 6

Move over, mozzarella! Rich, creamy, nutty Le Gruyère is the star of this pizza that works as well as an elegant first course as it does as a main course. Give it a garnish of fresh thyme leaves if you like.

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 (12-inch) pre-baked thin pizza crust
  • 1/3 cup crème fraîche
  • 3/4 cup grated Le Gruyère cheese
  • 2 ounces sliced prosciutto, cut into thin strips

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion, salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and caramelized, about 12 minutes. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 400°F. Place pizza crust on a baking sheet. Dot with crème fraîche and sprinkle with the caramelized onion, Le Gruyère and prosciutto. Bake until the crust is browned and the cheese is bubbling, about 12 minutes. Cool a few minutes and cut into wedges.
