Ingredients

  • 1 pound pizza dough
  • 2 vine-ripened tomatoes sliced and seeded
  • 1 pound fresh mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 cup arugula
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
  • Prepare the homemade pizza dough OR store bought dough. 
  • Brush a pizza pan or cookie sheet with olive oil or non-stick spray. Roll the pizza dough out in a thin 1/4 inch circle. 
  • Spread the dough with the oil and then spread the garlic over the oil. Sprinkle the oregano and salt and pepper evenly over the crust.
  • Arrange the tomatoes and arugula evenly over the crust. Season the tomatoes with salt and pepper as well. Then spread out the mozzarella evenly.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until crust is nicely browned. 

Notes

  • Feel free to use spinach or even basil in place of arugula for this pizza. 
  • While fresh mozzarella cheese is best, grated mozzarella can be substituted.
  • It is critical to de-seed tomatoes before adding to the pizza to prevent a soggy pizza crust.
  • If you like spice, you may want to add 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes.
