Prosciutto-Mozza Pizza

It's been awhile since I've posted a pizza recipe.  We've still been eating it just about weekly in our house and I'm always on the look out for new recipes!  I had this recipe ripped out of an old Cooking Light Magazine and finally decided to try it.  I don't know why I didn't try it earlier.  It's only five ingredients, including fresh mozarella and prosciutto......yum?!!!  This was really simple but really tasty!  I will definitely be making this pizza again!
Prosciutto-Mozza Pizza
recipe slightly adapted from Cooking Light, June 2012

1 pound refrigerated fresh pizza dough
2/3 cup lower-sodium marinara sauce
6 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto, torn into 1/2-inch-wide strips

1. Place a pizza stone or heavy baking sheet in oven. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. 

2. Roll the dough into a 14-inch circle on a lightly floured surface, and pierce entire surface liberally with a fork. Carefully remove pizza stone from oven and place dough on pizza stone. Spread sauce over dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border; top with cheese. Bake at 450 degrees for 14 minutes or until crust is golden and cheese is lightly browned. Remove from oven; brush outer crust with olive oil. Arrange prosciutto over pizza. Cut into 6 large slices.
