Ham, Caramelized Onion, & Gruyere Pizza

A pizza that puts that leftover Easter ham to use

Friday already? We'll take it. After a week of cooking, chefs, the Soho House, and even a groundhog slaying, we're ready for some pizza.

Our pizza of the week will have you viewing this Sunday's giant honey glazed ham in a whole new light. If you don't do Easter, this pie can be yours by simply swinging by the deli counter. If you don't do ham, this pizza is still solid without it.  

But since we love the salty sweet taste of ham, we've made it the star of this week's pizza. 

Crank up your oven and throw in the pizza stone. Simply use our basic pizza dough recipe and top it with some of our tomato sauce. Here's the drill.
