Spicy honey prosciutto flatbread pizza with crispy pan-fried prosciutto and fresh arugula on baked flatbread drizzled with spicy honey.
Have you ever had prosciutto? Or arugula?
These ingredients are seen less common in my area, but I think they should be used more.
Prosciutto is like a fancier, thinner version of bacon and who doesn’t love bacon?!
Arugula is packed full of nutrients like calcium, potassium, folate, vitamin A, C, and K and gives a peppery flavored crunchy bite to this dish.
Ingredients for Spicy Honey Prosciutto Flatbread Pizza:
- Minced Garlic
- Olive Oil
- Apple Cider Vinegar
- Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
- Yellow Onion
Can prosciutto be cooked?
Prosciutto is like a thinner, fancier Italian version of bacon. It’s usually served uncooked, but in this recipe, it is cooked like bacon.
It cooks a lot faster than bacon.

For the arugula, it is left uncooked in this recipe and used more as a topping. It can be left whole or chopped fine.
The arugula can be somewhat hard to find depending on the season.
I’ve found it at my local grocery mixed in a spinach/arugula salad mix and that was the only way to purchase it.
It is also at Whole Foods if you have one of those nearby.
What is flatbread pizza?
Flatbread pizza is very much how it sounds.
It’s a flattened bread-style pizza. There’s no yeast so it does not rise and remains flat.
When it comes to the flatbread for this recipe, look for the naan-style flatbread.
It’s like a cross between pita bread and chewy pizza crust, but it originates in Asia.
If you are unable to find naan-style flatbread, a regular flatbread pizza works just as well.
What is flatbread made out of?

- 1 tablespoon Minced Garlic, divided
- 1 tablespoon Honey
- 2 teaspoon Olive Oil
