The Timeless Tale of Prosciutto: A Culinary Treasure of Italy

To truly appreciate the enchanting Prosciutto Pizza, we must first delve into the storied history of its star ingredient. Prosciutto, a quintessentially Italian cured ham, traces its roots back centuries to the Roman Empire when preserving meats was an essential technique for survival. The art of crafting prosciutto involves the careful selection and curing of high-quality pork legs, followed by a meticulous ageing process that results in a velvety, tender texture and a distinct salty-sweet flavour that has captured the hearts of gourmands around the world.

In the context of Italian pizza-making, prosciutto serves as a symbol of traditional flavours and culinary expertise. By featuring this cherished ingredient in our Prosciutto Pizza, Marina Lunga honours Italy’s rich gastronomic heritage and our dedication to preserving time-honoured techniques while continually refining these creations for the modern palate.

A Perfect Marriage: Rocket and Prosciutto

One of the most captivating elements of the Prosciutto Pizza lies in the elegant harmony achieved by marrying the bold flavours of prosciutto with the peppery bite of fresh rocket. Often referred to as ‘arugula’ outside of Australia, this humble leafy green adds a touch of brilliance to the flavour profile of the pizza, providing a subtly spicy and bright contrast to the rich and salty prosciutto.

The exquisite balance showcased by these complementary ingredients is not exclusive to Italian cuisine; it is a prime example of the philosophy that pervades Marina Lunga’s entire menu—finding the perfect equilibrium among diverse flavours to create an unforgettable dining experience.

In the Company of Flavours: Other Star Ingredients

As with any great Italian dish, the Prosciutto Pizza would not be complete without the supporting cast of fresh, high-quality ingredients that make it truly shine. Anchoring our pizza is a base of Napoli sauce—a rich, flavourful tomato sauce that has become a hallmark of traditional Italian pizzas. Made from the ripest tomatoes and seasoned with a blend of herbs and spices, our Napoli sauce imparts a deep, savoury foundation that perfectly complements the bold notes of the prosciutto and rocket.

Another essential component of the Prosciutto Pizza—and, indeed, any truly great pizza—is the generous layer of mozzarella cheese. Made from the highest quality, whole-milk cheese, our mozzarella offers a delightfully smooth, creamy, and stretchy texture that melds with the pizza’s other flavours, creating a cohesive masterpiece that brings joy with each bite.

The Secrets of the Perfect Crust: Crafting the Prosciutto Pizza

No discussion of the Prosciutto Pizza would be complete without exploring the foundation that holds it all together—the pizza crust. At Marina Lunga, we take immense pride in perfecting our pizza dough recipe, resulting in a crust that is equal parts chewy, crisp, and airy.

Our dedicated pizzaiolos meticulously hand-stretch the dough to achieve the ideal balance between thinness and structural integrity, ensuring it can support the weight of the delicious toppings without losing its characteristic texture. Subsequently, the dough is baked to perfection in our wood-fired oven, imparting a subtle, smoky flavour that heightens the pizza’s overall taste and creates a truly authentic Italian pizza experience.
