Melon and Air-dried Ham Pizza Pizza!

This recipe translates well from a favourite salad into a delicious pizza topping. The sweet melon works wonderfully with the salty charcuterie and the creamy mozzarella weaves it all together. Try finishing with a drizzle of mint oil and some cracked black pepper.



  1. Preheat your pizza oven to 350˚C. Roll out your pizza dough and spread with a ladle of tomato sauce.
  2. Next arrange the melon slices, ham and cheese on the pizza along with 5-6 torn mint leaves.
  3. Bake in the oven for 3 mins, turning regularly for an even crust.
