Do you have to cook prosciutto?

No. As a cured meat it can eaten as is. It is occasionally cooked to crisp it in some dishes.

No. Prosciutto is sweet, delicate ham intended to be eaten raw. The word 'prosciutto' is the Italian for ham, but is widely used to describe seasoned, cured, air-dried ham. 'Prosciutto cotto' is cooked and 'prosciutto crudo' is raw (although safe and ready to eat thanks to the curing process).
