Prosciutto, arugula, and goat cheese pizza 🍕 Top 5 favorite recipes!


Hi guys, I wanted to share another pizza recipe that me and my husband are crazy about. It has so many different elements of textures and flavors, including a fruity twang, a dash of pepper and freshness from the arugula, salty from the prosciutto, sweet from the honey, and a creamy texture from the goat cheese. It’s delicious, so you should try it ASAP! As I’ve said with all of these recipes, it took me a few times to get it just right, so don’t give up if it doesn’t turn out perfect the first time 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 1oz plain goat cheese
  • 2 oz shredded or grated mozzarella
  • 1 cup plus 1/4 cup arugula
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt, per taste
  • 6 oz prosciutto (I buy a half pound from the deli)
  • 1 tsp honey (thinned out with a few drops of water)
  • 9oz frozen pizza dough, thawed
  • 2 Garlic cloves
  • 1 lemon

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Add ice water to a medium sized bowl, and set aside.
  3. Add water ( 1/2 cup) to a medium pot, bring water to a boil.
  4. Once boiling, Add garlic cloves and 1 cup of wild arugula.
  5. After 30 seconds, drain and immediately add to ice water to stop cooking.
  6. When cool, remove arugula and garlic and, using paper towels, squeeze out excess water.
  7. In a blender (I use my mini bullet) puree cooked arugula, garlic cloves, extra-virgin olive oil, and a pinch of sea salt until garlic is blended well (you don’t want to bite into a huge chunk of garlic) . Set aside.
  8. Roll out the pizza dough until it is about 12 inches across.
  9. Spread a heaping tablespoon or two of the pesto over the pizza dough. Distribute mozzarella and goat cheese throughout dough. Add a few pinches of salt per taste.
  10. Bake pizza for 15 to 25 minutes, until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown and bubbling.
  11. Remove pizza from oven, drizzle the thinned honey over the pizza and top with remaining 1/4 cup of arugula.
  12. I always add a few squeezes of fresh lemon juice into the arugula to help balance the flavor because it does have a peppery taste, but try not to overpower it with too much Acidity.
  13. Slice pizza into sizes per your shape preference and add prosciutto onto each piece.

Enjoy 😊
