Preparing Jamon Serrano 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;
- Jamon Serrano

Jamon Serrano, a type of Spanish-style dry-cured ham, is becoming a popular pizza topping. This savory meat adds an element of flavor and texture to homemade pizzas that can’t be found with more traditional toppings like mushrooms or pepperoni.
This type of cured ham is made using old-fashioned techniques that have been around for centuries in Spain. High quality Jamon Serrano is sliced very thin so that it melts into the pizza as it cooks in the oven – a unique experience compared to other meats.
