- 3 medium shallots, thinly sliced (a mandolin works great)
- 4 Tbs. butter, divided
- 6 oz gruyere cheese, grated
- 5 thin prosciutto slices
- 2 Tbs. chopped chives
- 1 (10x13-inch) sheet pizza dough (thin or regular crust is fine)
- Coarse salt
Step 1Preheat oven to 350°F.
Step 2Melt 3 Tbs. butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Once the butter is foaming, add the shallots to the pan and season with a pinch of salt.
Step 3Lower the heat to medium low and slowly caramelize the shallots 30-40 minutes, until medium to dark brown.
Step 4Roll the pizza dough out on a floured work surface. Evenly sprinkle the cheese over the dough, followed by the shallots, torn prosciutto slices and half the chopped chives. Gently roll the dough from one end to the other, forming a log.
Step 5Slice into 1/2-inch rounds, and place on a rimmed baking sheet. Melt the last Tbs. of butter and lightly brush over the tops of the pinwheels.
Step 6Bake for 25 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese has melted and the ham is crisping up on top.
Step 7Transfer to a platter and garnish with the rest of the chives.
