Arugula and prosciutto is such a popular combination and both make the perfect topping choice for this weeknight-friendly pizza recipe. Dusting your pizza peel or baking sheet with cornmeal will help prevent your pizza from sticking while it bakes.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Position a rack in the middle of the oven. Place a pizza stone or upside-down baking sheet on the rack and preheat to 450 ̊ F. Roll out the pizza dough on a lightly floured surface into a 12-inch round. Transfer to a cornmeal-dusted pizza peel or another upside-down baking sheet; slide the dough onto the hot stone or baking sheet. Bake 8 minutes. Meanwhile, combine 2 tablespoons olive oil in a small bowl with the garlic, rosemary, and salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Remove the crust from the oven, brush with the olive oil mixture and top with the ricotta and mozzarella. Return to the oven and bake until the cheese is golden and bubbly, about 6 more minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, toss the arugula and shallot in a large bowl with the lemon juice, remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste. Top the pizza with the arugula salad, prosciutto and shaved Parmesan.

Cook’s Note

This pizza bakes at 450 ̊ F— but outdoor pizza ovens get much hotter, so cooking times will be shorter. If you’re using one, keep an eye on the pie!
