Arugula Pizza


Arugula is leafy greens with peppery bite. It also goes by the name "Rocket" due to the unique shape of its leaves. Arugula pizza is baked first and then you add fresh Arugula on top. In my Pizza escapades so far, this is my husband's most favorite pizza.

Arugula Pizza (Makes 1 pizza)
1 readymade pizza crust (See note below)
1 tbsp. readymade oven roasted tomatoes with Italian seasoning
A handful of Arugula
1/4 cup Mozzarella cheese, shredded
Crushed red pepper
1. Preheat oven 400F.
2. Place readymade pizza crust on a baking or pizza tray.
3. Spread Oven roasted tomatoes around the crust leaving about 2" border around the circumference of the crust.
4. Sprinkle Mozzarella cheese over.

6. Bake for about 5 minutes or till the cheese is melted.
7. Cut into wedges.
8. Garnish with crushed red pepper if using.
Note -
1. I used Whole Foods Brand Whole Wheat Pita for this recipe.
2. I used Costco brand oven roasted tomatoes. It has lots of oil. So try to use only tomatoes, shaking off as much excess oil as possible, before spreading on the crust.
3. You can most certainly make homemade pizza crust.
