Preparing Bresaola Pizza
Preheat your kitchen oven to approximately 500 degrees.
Roll out the dough to either slightly smaller than your pizza stone (if you have one) or on a metal tray for the kitchen oven.
Alternatively, if you have a pizza oven, roll out to be smaller than your pizza peel.
First, spread the sauce around. This pizza calls for Tomato Sauce. Spread the Tomato Sauce evenly using the back of a large spoon or the blunt side of a knife.
You should start by adding the largest ingredients, then work your way down. The last is any cheese topping, such as Mozzarella, which you should evenly cover the other toppings with, and then finally any herbs.
The toppings to include on this pizza are;
- Pecorino Cheese
Whilst this pizza is good as is, or you could make some homemade garlic bread as well?
Put the Bresaola pizza in the middle of your oven (on a stone if you have one) and set timer for 10 minutes.
After roughly 10 minutes, check on the pizza.
Pizza should be ready within 15 minutes. However, allow it to cook to personal taste.
About Pecorino Cheese
Pecorino was named 2,000 years ago from the Italian word pecora, which means “sheep.” Although known as the firm, hard cheese available from most stores, Pecorino actually covers all Italian cheeses that are made from ewe’s milk.
Pecorino is available in Italy in three main classifications that are based on how long the individual cheeses have been aged. They are fresco, semi-stagionato and stagionato.
When making Bresaola Pizza, I always recommend that you use whatever kitchen items you have. My basic pizza tools are…
Yes, I know, many people swear by hand stretching, however there’s times in all our lives where we need a good wooden roller.

Bresaola is a type of cured meat originating from Northern Italy. This delicacy has been around since the 16th century, and it’s still popular today as an ingredient for pizza toppings.
Primarily made from air-dried beef, bresaola creates an unforgettable flavor when added to any pizza dish. The meat is usually cut into thin slices and can be combined with other ingredients like mozzarella cheese and fresh herbs for extra taste.
