Spinach and Prosciutto White Pizza
Panera Bread Spinach and Prosciutto White Pizza
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 bag (6 ounces) torn mature spinach leaves
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 rounds Panera Bread Asiago Cheese Focaccia
1 1/2 ounces sliced prosciutto, chopped into bite-size pieces
Preheat oven to 500ºF. Heat oil in a large deep skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and red pepper flakes and cook for 1 minute. Add spinach, tossing and cooking until it wilts, 4 to 5 minutes. Season with a pinch of pepper.
Combine ricotta, mozzarella, oregano, and pepper in a bowl. Spread over focaccia to the edges, patting into an even layer. Top with spinach mixture, spreading it around as evenly as possible. Scatter prosciutto over the top.
Bake directly on an oven rack with no baking sheet until cheese softens and crust browns and crisps, 10 to 12 minutes. Cut each pizza into six wedges.
