First post of the new year and it’s right on time with the Super Bowl being just five days away. And what are we serving up? A charcuterie homemade pizza. Yes!!
This charcuterie pizza was a hit with my family, and if you are hosting this year’s Super Bowl soiree, I promise you it will be a hit with your guests, too. Be wild and shake up the old menu of chicken wings and nachos. And I can’t forget to say, whether where you are is fully open from Covid restrictions or not, whatever you choose to do, stay safe!
Charcuterie is a fancy French word for prepared meat products sometimes accompanied with cheese, nuts, olives, et cetera, and this pizza has all the meat I enjoy on a charcuterie board but not traditionally found on a pizza, lots of sodium, soft cheese, and olives. My mouth is actually pulsating right now. 😛 I love making homemade pizza because you can do whatever you want with it. Although pizza originated in Italy with traditional toppings, it made its way to the States where over time, the toppings have changed. There is no right or wrong.
I started with homemade dough and tomato sauce, but store bought will do just fine, if you are in a pinch. I did not include the tomato sauce recipe in the recipe card below because of lack of time, but you can find a ton of ideas on the internet.
All the Stars, Crust
All the Stars, Pizza Toppings
I added more mozzarella cheese than is shown here. Go crazy with the cheese like the Prince song. 🤣 I can never have enough cheese!
Pop it in the oven and bake at 425 degrees for 12 minutes.

- To make the pizza crust: (weighed)
- 24 oz water
- 30 oz bread flour
- 16 oz semolina flour
- 1 oz salt
- 7 g yeast
- 1 oz olive oil
- To make the pizza:
- 1 cup tomato sauce
- 4 slices of prosciutto (chopped into strips)
- 9 slices of pepperoni
- 6 thinly sliced genoa salami
- 3 oz goat cheese
- 2 cup mozzarella cheese
- 1 oz sliced olives
- olive oil
- arugula or basil for garnish (optional)
- sliced almonds (optional)
- To make the dough, add in the flour, yeast, semolina flour, salt and water into an electric mixer. Mix on low speed for three minutes and then on medium speed for 5 minutes until the dough pulls away from the side of the bowl and is sticky.
- Remove the dough from the electric mixer bowl and with your hands shape into a ball. Sprinkle flour on the cutting board and hands if your hands become too sticky. Oil a bowl and place the dough shaped into a ball in the bowl and allow the dough to double in size, for about an hour or two.
- Preheat oven to 425.
- Once the dough has risen, place the dough on a floured surface or cutting board and using a rolling pin flatten it into a round pin, about 15 inches in diameter, or to the size of your pizza pan. Transfer the dough to a nonstick pizza pan.
- Brush olive oil on the pizza dough. Begin to assemble the pizza toppings starting with the tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, goat cheese, genoa salami, pepperoni, prosciutto, more mozzarella and then olives.
- Place in the oven and bake until edges are golden brown, approximately 12 minutes.
- Remove from the oven. Cut into slices and garnish with arugula, basil or almonds. (optional)
