One of my favorite special pizzas is a prosciutto and arugula pizza with brie and balsamic glaze. This pizza is usually reserved for those rare days when I don’t have to make supper for my family. My kids aren’t a fan of ‘lettuce’ on their pizza, and my husband needs more substance (aka meat) on his. So this is a special ‘me day’ pizza. It is a restaurant quality pizza that you can eat fresh out of the oven in silence.
This is one of few recipes that I will be posting that is a one serving portion. Of course, this pizza is also great to serve to guests or families that are into arugula on their pizza. So just double or quadruple the recipe as needed.
The base of this pizza is made from my ‘quicker’ no-knead bread dough. Instead of patting out the dough into one ball, make three or four. After stretching them out, they will make one medium pizza each. You can easily freeze the extras for a quick and easy pizza base. Feel free to add your own toppings to this pizza dough as well. And don’t forget to enjoy with or without your kids! And possibly with a special drink. I prefer this pizza with a dill pickle Caesar – yum!
