Ingredients

  • 1 lb prepared whole wheat pizza dough
  • 2 ounces very thinly sliced prosciutto, cut into thin strips
  • 2 cups packed coarsely chopped arugula
  • 1 cup chopped Roma tomatoes
  • 1 medium red onion, thinly sliced

  • 2 oz goat cheese, crumbled

Instructions

  1. Preheat to 450°F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to about the size of the baking sheet. Transfer to the baking sheet. Bake until puffed and lightly crisped on the bottom, 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, spray a large nonstick skillet with nonfat cooking spray and place over medium heat. Add onion, prosciutto and crushed red pepper and cook, stirring, until the onion is beginning to brown, about 3 minutes.
  4. Spread the onion mixture evenly over the crust and top with mozzarella and goat cheese. Bake until crispy and golden and the cheese is melted, 5-8 minutes.
  5. Remove from the oven and top with arugula and tomato.

Comments

  1. Delicious and so simple!
    Changes:
    1) Used my own whole wheat dough from http://www.artisanbreadinfive.com/ and followed the bake time according to that recipe.
    2) Did not sauté the onion and prosciutto first.  Didn’t see the point for the extra effort.
    3) A light sprinkle of balsamic vinegar after I put on the arugula and tomato.
    4) Not a healthy choice probably, but the second time I made this recipe I also sprinkled a little truffle oil, which was excellent, but not necessary to have a wonderful dish.

    This is going to be a staple.  Thanks!
