Position rack in lower third of oven; preheat to 500°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. On lightly floured work surface, roll out or press dough into 16- x 8-inch oval. Transfer to prepared pan; prick all over with fork. Brush with pesto, spreading to edge; sprinkle with 1 1/2 cups of the mozzarella.  

Bake until crust is light golden and cheese is melted, about 5 minutes. Arrange prosciutto over crust; top with remaining mozzarella. Bake until bottom of crust is golden and crisp, about 6 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes; slice into 2-inch squares. 

CHANGE IT UP: Make it vegetarian 
Substitute 1/3 cup thinly sliced sun-dried tomatoes for the prosciutto.

Makes about 28 squares.
