Prosciutto Arugula Pizza will quickly be a go-to favorite for pizza night. The combination of aromatic arugula and salted prosciutto pair perfectly with the thick sliced mozzarella and shaved Parmesan.
This weekend we decided to make our favorite pizza instead of getting delivery. I love creating pizza’s that include fresh ingredients. This time I decided on using Prosciutto with Arugula.
I tend to stay with the basics and add in whatever I am in the mood for. The basics include a one minute pizza sauce (recipe below), sliced mozzarella and cherry tomatoes. I don’t have a favorite pizza dough, so I buy the 12 oz store bought dough bags, which creates two pizzas.
This time around, I decided to try out our pizza stone instead of a baking sheet. We have only used it for our Kettle Pizza. After all, it works great on the charcoal grill.
What my BIG mistake was, was thinking a stainless steel peel would easily slide the pizza onto the preheated stone. No matter how much flour I used, the dough would not move. It was a disaster. Eventually we got it off, but the poor pizza no longer had a shape. The stainless peel went into the garbage.
The second pizza came out perfectly on the baking sheet. That will always be my recommendation.
My husband and I were blown away with this pizza. He is still raving about it. I can’t say enough how amazing it turned out. The simple homemade sauce removes a lot of the sugar you normally find in store bought pizza sauce. It makes a lot of sauce after you blend it, so we used it for spaghetti sauce the next day.
