Arugula Pizza


Your favorite pizza crust–I always have a few bags of Whole Foods multigrain pizza dough in my freezer for occasions when I’m not making my own.
2-3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for brushing on crust
freshly squeezed lemon juice from half a lemon
1 clove garlic, minced
salt and pepper
3-4 cups arugula
Parmesan cheese


Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Press the dough out to your desired shape and place on bottom side of pizza pan (makes for a crisper crust) or pizza stone. Brush crust with extra virgin olive oil. Place crust in oven and bake for 1-20 minutes or until crust is golden brown.

While crust is baking make your vinaigrette. In a mason jar or small bowl whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, salt and pepper. Toss with arugula until lightly coated.

When crust has finished baking remove from oven and immediately top with arugula and Parmesan.
