Wisconsin Wants You to Eat Pizza for Christmas!

Winsconsin Cheese Normally I precede a recipe with an obnoxious, yet somewhat amusing story about the source. But this once I'll forego the pleasantries and get straight to this recipe, certified to be adequately cheesy by the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board.

Category: Pizza
Number of Servings: 12
  • 1 frozen, pre-baked pizza crust, thawed (12 inch)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 1/2 cups (12 ounces) Wisconsin Ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup (1 ounce) crumbled Wisconsin Gorgonzola cheese
  • 2 tablespoons grated Wisconsin Romano cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil leaves, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano leaves, crushed
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Wisconsin Mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded Wisconsin Fontinella cheese
  • 1/2 cup diced tomato
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 2 thin slices Proscuitto, diced
Cooking Directions:
Spread crust with butter; toast under broiler. Set aside.

Combine Gorgonzola, Romano, basil and oregano; mix well. Spread over crust; top with remaining cheeses. Bake at 450° F for 5 to 8 minutes or until cheese is melted. Top with remaining ingredients.

Variation: Substitute ham for Proscuitto.

Mmmmm.... "Spread crust with butter; toast under broiler. Set aside. " That's without a doubt the most fattening and yet strangely compelling idea I've come across to add flavour to a storebought pizza crust. The only thing I'm suspect of is that they claim this 12-inch pizza will serve twelve. If it's meant as a Christmas party appy I can see it, but for a meal I think this'll serve 3-4 adults. Of course, the only way to know for sure is to make it myself and see!

A Quick Slice In Japan, pizza toppings may include corn, diced potatoes, scrambled eggs, mayonnaise, Camembert cheese, curry sauce, and various kinds of seafood. Tabasco sauce is often used as a condiment. Salad pizza, a pizza topped with tossed salad, is occasionally seen. Another variation is rice pizza, substituting baked rice for the crust. Squid ink is also occastionally used in lieu of traditional tomato sauce.
