Pizza Fail

It sounded good. It was going to make us think of Italy in summer and the times we had fresh, juicy melon wrapped in paper-thin prosciutto. But we were going to put a spin on it. We were going to make it into a pizza. A pizza topped with bufala mozzarella, prosciutto and cantaloupe, then lightly drizzled with balsamic vinegar. 

How far we've fallen, and in only two days! This pizza was a total failure. Although we brushed the dough with olive oil, there was way too much water in the cheese and melon and all of it just soaked into the dough making it a soggy mess. And the prosciutto we bought was pre-sliced and...from Germany. Don't get us wrong, there's nothing wrong with Germany or its prosciutto, but not on this pizza. Because it was sliced thick, it was rubbery and very difficult to chew.

We won't bother giving you a recipe because, really, we don't want you trying this at home. But it sure sounded good. Didn't it?

It actually looks really pretty and I love the combination of flavors. I agree with The Duo Dishes and Tiffany, try it again! Maybe caramelize the melons a little or make it into a thicker sauce to change it up? Good luck!!
