Peinirli with Serrano Ham and Rucola Recipe


Prep time: 30 minutes Cook time: 15 hours Total time: 15 hour and 30 minutes Serving: 2 people



Delicious boat shaped pizzas also known as peinirli. Enjoy them with pizza sauce, fresh mozzarella & parmesan cheese, Serrano ham, and rucola.



Cold fermented pizza dough:

0.91 cup (215 ml) water

0.18 oz (5 g) yeast

0.28 oz (8 g) salt

11.11 oz (315 g) flour


7.05 oz (200 g) pizza sauce

2.12 oz (60 g) Serrano ham

4.41 oz (125 g) fresh mozzarella

0.71 oz (20 g) fresh parmesan

1.06 oz (30 g) rucola



  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Add salt and flour and stir quickly with a spoon. Put in fridge for at least 15 hours.
  2. Turn on oven at 465 degrees F (240 C). Make sure a baking tray is in the oven so it becomes very hot.
  3. When the dough has risen sprinkle a bunch of flour over your table. Place the dough and split it into 2 equally sized balls. Form them like a boat and wrap the ends. Place them on a piece of baking sheet.
  4. Spread pizza sauce on the dough. Then add mozzarella.
  5. Place the baking sheet with your peinirli on the super hot baking tray. Bake for 8-9 minuttes.
  6. Top with rucola, Serrano ham and fresh parmesan cheese. Enjoy!

Recipe for peinirli with Serrano ham and rucola

Here you get a new recipe for peinirli with Serrano ham and ruloca.

The slightly tall edges of the peinirli lets all the filling stay in place. Technically the same as a pizza, the fun shape and smaller size makes them a different experience and also makes them more portable so you can grab one on the go. We have previously made a peinirli recipe with pepperoni that was highly appreciated so we wanted to bring you this different version. We add the Serrano ham after the peinirli comes out of the oven for a fresh bite, but if you want it warm and crispy you can also add your ham before baking them in the oven.

The dough needs to cold ferment for at least 15 hours, so put it together the day before serving. This takes almost no time to do. When the dough is ready, it takes just 10 minutes to get them ready for the oven. Talk about easy dinner (as long as you plan ahead)!
