Ingredients
  

  • 10 oz (280g) of pizza dough
  • 4 tbsp (66 g) tomato purée (passata)
  • Extra virgin olive oil (a few drops)
  • Dried oregano (1 pinch)
  • Salt
  • 5 1/2 oz (150 g) fresh mozzarella cheese
  • 1 slice cooked ham (prosciutto cotto), about 35 g or 1.2 oz
  • 1 medium Italian brown mushroom, about 40 g or 1.4 oz
  • 1 smaller ripe tomato, about 35 g or 1.2 oz
  • 1 1/2 canned artichoke hearts

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to the highest heat possible.
  • Form a ball from the dough. Start by making a circular motion with the palm of your hand, with some pressure. Then release the pressure gradually until you get a nice ball shape. You need 280 g or 10 oz pizza dough for a regular pizza, and 140 g or 5 oz for a small pizza.
  • Put your pizza dough balls on a lightly floured work surface. Dust them with some more flour, and let them proof covered with a kitchen towel for another 15 minutes.
  • Shape your dough to form a large, thin disk and place it in a pizza pan.
  • Put your tomato purée (passata) on top of your pizza dough, in the middle. With a back of a spoon or a ladle, using circular motions towards the edges, make sure the tomato covers your pizza dough. Leave an edge about 1 inch (2-3 cm) thick.
  • Add your mozzarella cheese. Just tear it in bite size pieces, and place them over the tomato sauce. Drizzle a few drops of extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle some dried oregano and salt.
  • Cut your mushrooms and tomatoes into 1/4-1/5 inch (5-6 mm) slices. Cut your artichoke hearts into 8. Tear your ham into bite-size pieces.
  • Your toppings should go into each quarter of your 4 seasons pizza: one quarter for your ham, another for your mushrooms, the third for the tomato and the last quarter for the artichokes.
  • Transfer your four seasons pizza into the oven. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the edges are slightly browned.
