pizzaThe first time I ate this pizza in Italy, I just could not believe how much I loved the nutty flavor! For those ARUGULA lovers you will love it! If you want to try something special and different, take a chance on this pizza!!! It is so fresh, so healthy, so good for you.


Arugula Pizza
Plan Ahead: : Make Tuscan Sun Dough and freeze 2 of the 3 dough balls for future use.
  • 1 pizza dough ball – Tuscan Sun Pizza dough page 133
  • ⅔ cup fresh Mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cups fresh arugula
  • ½ cup fresh cherry or grape tomatoes, cut in half Olive oil, for drizzling
  • Coarse salt and fresh ground black pepper
  1. Preheat the oven to 500°.
  2. Roll out the dough. Place the dough on an oiled pizza pan or baking sheet. Or, on a pizza peel with a little flour and cornmeal to move pizza to a stone or tile. Brush olive oil over the entire pizza.
  3. Slice the fresh mozzarella cheese and place it on the crust or top with shredded regular mozzarella.
  4. Bake in a 500° oven for 6-8 min. on bottom oven rack until crisp.
  5. Remove from the oven and immediately pile the arugula pieces onto the hot melted cheese and top with tomatoes. Drizzle a little olive oil on top. Season lightly with coarse salt and fresh ground pepper.
  6. I felt like adding some avocados!! It was yummy! Enjoy!! XOXO
