                         Basic pizza dough
    2       c            (about 8 oz) shredded fresh
                         Mozzarella cheese
    2       c            (about 1 lb) ricotta cheese
      1/2   c            (about 2 oz) freshly grated
                         Parmesan cheese
                         Cornmeal, if using a pizza
      1/2   c            Olive oil, approximately
    1       c            Peeled, seeded, chopped, and
                         Well-drained vine-ripened or
                         Canned Italian plum tomatoes
    5       oz           Prosciutto or other
                         Flavourful ham, slivered
    3                    Garlic cloves, minced or
                         Pressed (optional)
                         Freshly ground black pepper
   In a large bowl, combine the mozzarella, ricotta, and 1/4 cup of the
   Parmesan; reserve.
   Roll out or stretch the pizza dough into circles.  Working with 1 circle at
   a time, place the dough on a pizza pan generously sprinkled with cornmeal
   or on a lightly oiled pizza screen.  Brush dough all over with olive oil,
   then cover half of dough circle with a generous portion of the cheeses,
   leaving a 1/2-inch border around the edges.  Sprinkle with the tomatoes,
   prosciutto, garlic, and salt and pepper to taste.  Fold the uncovered side
   over the filling and press the edges of the dough together to seal.  Brush
   the dough with olive oil.
   Transfer to an oven preheated to 500 degrees and bake until the crust is
   golden brown and puffy, about 15 minutes.  Remove from the oven to a
   plate, lightly brush with olive oil, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, and
   serve immediately.
   Serves 4 to 6 as a main course, 8 to 10 as a starter.
