Description

Update your next pizza night with this arugula pesto pizza with prosciutto on whole wheat crust!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE DOUGH:
  • ¾ cups Water, Heated Between 120 And 130 Degrees
  • 1 envelope (1/4 Oz. Packet) Instant Active Dry Yeast
  • 1 teaspoon Agave Syrup
  • 1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 cup All-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • FOR THE TOPPINGS:
  • 3 cloves Garlic
  • 2 cups Arugula
  • ½ cups Olive Oil
  • ¼ cups Walnuts
  • ¼ cups Parmesan Cheese
  • Kosher Salt And Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • ½ pounds Mozzarella Cheese, Sliced
  • ½ cups Asiago Cheese, Shredded
  • ¼ pounds Prosciutto Thinly Sliced

Preparation

For the dough, in the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the warm water with the yeast and agave syrup. Let the yeast dissolve, about 3 minutes. Fit the electric mixer with a dough hook and add in the flour, salt, and olive oil. Mix on medium-low speed for about 10 minutes, adding more flour if the dough sticks to the sides of the bowl. Transfer dough to a floured surface and knead by hand about 10 times. Form the dough into a ball and transfer to a bowl greased with olive oil. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and let rise at room temperature for 30 minutes. Use dough immediately or cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 1 day.

Meanwhile, make the arugula pesto. In a food processor, pulse the garlic a few times so it is minced. Add in the arugula and pulse a few more times. With the motor running, stream in the olive oil. Add in the walnuts, parmesan cheese, and season with salt and pepper. (I under-salted a bit because the cheese and prosciutto are salty.)

Preheat the oven to 500ºF. If your dough has been in the refrigerator, let it rest at room temperature for 15 minutes. Stretch the dough by hand into a 13 X 5 inch pizza pan. Spread the pesto evenly (you might have extra pesto). Top with the cheeses and prosciutto. Bake for about 12 minutes until crust is crisp and cheese is beginning to brown.

Makes one 13 x 5 inch round pizza. Serves 4 (2 slices each).
