Arugula Pizza

  • pizza dough
  • 2 tbsp corn meal (optional)
  • 1 ball fresh mozzarella
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/4cup pecorino
  • small bag fresh arugula (can add frisee, dill, etc)
  • Half a lemon, juiced
  • black pepper

Preheat oven to 425 deg. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray and sprinkle with corn meal. Stretch out crust as evenly as possible on pan. Drizzle  and smear a little bit of olive oil over crust. Cut mozzarella into 1 cm cubes and distribute evenly over pizza crust.  Sprinkle pecorino and grate black pepper over cheese to taste. Bake pizza on low rack in oven for about 18-20 minutes, until the cheese is turning golden and the bottom of the crust is golden.  While pizza is in the oven, put arugula in bowl, cut up a bit, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with kosher salt, and toss with lemon juice.  Wilt the arugula slightly in the microwave on high for 45-55 sec. When the pizza is done, distribute the greens evenly over the pizza and serve!  Yum!
