{the dish} Pizza Salad

There is a great restaurant in town that serves out of this world pizza. My favorite is the pizza with an arugula salad right on top.

I tried to recreate this wonderful pie. Some success and some improvements to be made!

Arugula Pizza Salad by ann west

pizza dough (i found some great fresh dough but any thin dough will work)
olive oil
red onion
fresh basil
sliced tomato - let them sit and drain a bit
lemon juice
pine nuts
parmesan cheese
red pepper flakes or hot chili oil (if you wish)

Roll out your dough. Brush the dough with olive oil. Crush your garlic into a paste and spread on the dough. If you like red pepper flakes sprinkle them on. Layer your proscuitto, onion and basil. Cook your pizza 1/2 to 3/4 of the way - (your crust should be set and slightly brown). While it is cooking toss the arugula and pine nuts and parmesan with olive oil and a little lemon juice. Top you pizza with the salad and cook until the arugula is wilted and the cheese is soft. Add some pepper and salt to taste and enjoy!
