Ingredients

1 cup grated Parmesan

2 eggs

Crushed black pepper

1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more for topping

3 thick slices pancetta, cut into 1/3-inch cubes

1 ball your favorite pizza dough

All-purpose flour, for dusting

2 ounces mozzarella, shredded

Grated pecorino cheese

Directions

Special equipment:
Pizza stone
  1. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F with a pizza stone on the highest rack. 
  2. Make the egg cream by whisking together the Parmesan, eggs and a big sprinkle of black pepper until thick and foamy. 
  3. Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the pancetta. Cook over high heat until crunchy and fragrant, about 6 minutes. 
  4. Stretch the dough on a floured work surface to an 11-inch circle. Spoon the egg cream onto the center of the pizza and spread over the dough with a spoon. Evenly distribute the pancetta on top and sprinkle over the mozzarella. 
  5. Transfer the dough onto the pizza stone and bake until puffy, about 6 minutes, then turn on the broiler and broil until the crust takes on some color, 45 seconds. 
  6. Remove the pizza and top with a sprinkle of pecorino, more crushed black pepper and a swirl of olive oil.
