Description

A peppery fresh salad of arugula topping a wonderful pizza made fresh vine-ripened tomatoes and fresh mozzarella.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Pizza Dough (See Note)
  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil, Divided
  • 1 Tablespoon Minced Garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Oregano
  • 2 whole Vine Ripened Tomatoes, Sliced In 1/2" Slices And Seeded
  • 1 pound Fresh Mozzarella, Sliced Into 1/2" Slices
  • 2 cups Arugula, Washed And Dried
  • ½ whole Lemon, Juiced
  • Salt And Pepper

Preparation

Note: See the related blog post for a link to a 2-ingredient pizza dough, or use your favorite store-bought dough.

Preheat oven to 500ºF.

Prepare the pizza dough. Brush a pizza pan or cookie sheet with olive oil or nonstick spray. Pat the dough out with floured fingers to a thin crust.

Spread the dough with the 2 tablespoons of oil and then spread the garlic over the oil. Sprinkle the oregano and salt and pepper evenly over the crust.

Arrange the tomatoes evenly over the crust. Season the tomatoes with salt and pepper as well. Then spread out the mozzarella evenly (I keep saying evenly, because you want every bite to be equally delicious!)

Bake for 10-15 minutes.

While the pizza is baking, toss the arugula with the lemon juice, remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil, and salt and pepper. Once the pizza is baked, top with the arugula salad and enjoy!
