Arugula + Prosciutto Pizza

I have a theory that if you top a pizza with TONS of fresh greens it becomes a salad. I'm not sure if that's a popular opinion but I feel good about it. 

This pizza is on my list of go-to pies. You have that salty prosciutto and fresh mozzarella all topped with an arugula salad. I mean, come ON! All day, every day kind of pizza.

Part of what makes creating your own pizzas at home fun is the freedom to do what you want. Be creative! For that reason, I'm only ever going to give you some tips and a list of ingredients. Put however much of each topping on that you want! My only piece of advice: less is more when it comes to pizza. Too many toppings will weigh down your crust. Too much sauce will make it soggy.



Arugula + Prosciutto Pizza

Prep Time: 3 hours 20 minutes (includes rise time for the dough)

Cooking Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 3 hours and 45 minutes

Servings: 2-3


1 Pizza Dough Ball

3-4 Tbsp of Tomato Sauce

Fresh Mozzarella Cheese

3-4 Prosciutto Slices


2 Tbsp Olive Oil

1/4 tsp Salt

1/2 tsp Pepper



  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees. You want the oven to be HOT!

  2. Tear up the fresh mozzarella.

  3. Prepare your pizza dough. Using your hands, slowly work the dough into a round(ish) shape, roughly 14-16" in diameter. Create a small crust around the perimeter of the dough but slightly rolling and twisting the edge of the dough at the same time.

  4. Top your pizza with 3-4 Tbsp of sauce and place fresh pieces of mozzarella around the entire pizza. Make sure not cover the pizza sauce entirely. You want that sauce poking through! Add a swirl of olive around the pizza.

  5. Bake on a pizza stone for 14-16 minutes.

  6. While your pizza is cooking, prepare the arugula salad. Combine two large handfuls of arugula with the salt, pepper and olive oil. Set aside.

  7. Pull the pizza from the oven when the cheese is nice and melted and starting to look golden brown. Top with prosciutto and arugula salad. Finish with Parmesan cheese. Wait 5 minutes to slice and serve!
