When the dough has risen, add the ham and chives and knead again on a lightly floured surface. Divide it into four pieces and transfer every portion to a baking sheet (oil them with 1 tablespoon olive oil). This amount of dough is enough for four 30 cm (12in) round baking sheets if you like crunchy pizza but if you prefer soft pizza use only two baking sheets.
Spread the dough with your hands in order to cover the bottom of the sheet.
Allow to rise about 20 minutes in a warm place.
Meanwhile preheat oven to 220°C (425°F) and cube the mozzarella. Oil the surface of the two pizzas with the remaining oil and bake them for about 15 minutes; then remove them from the oven and arrange the cubed mozzarella cheese over the top. Bake again for about 5 minutes. Cooking times are indicative; everyone can adjust them to his oven.
Serve hot or warm.
