I needed the perfect sauce to top my Walnut Crusted Grilled Tri Tip, so I thought why not incorporate more walnuts, add some fresh arugula and green onions, then throw in some blue cheese… because what is better on a freshly grilled steak, then flavorful blue cheese!
Hi, my name is Whitney and I’m a pizza addict. Yes, I will admit, I have probably never met a pizza I didn’t like.
Ingredients (crust – makes 1 pizza)
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 oz yeast
- 2 cups flour
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup pizza sauce
- 3 cups arugula
- 4 oz prosciutto
- 1/4 cup romano cheese
- 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
Start making the crust by combining the water and yeast. Allow to sit for 5-10 minutes or until the mixture begins to bubble.
Next, add the flour, salt and mix until a solid ball forms. Knead the ball of dough for 5 minutes then place into a large greased bowl and cover.
Allow to rise for 30-45 minutes then place the dough on a baking sheet and roll into a thin crust.
Next, spread the pizza sauce on top. I used the same recipe that I used on my deep dish pizza because it was amazing! I highly recommend you do the same!
Next, top with 2 cups of the arugula.
Then with the strips of prosciutto.
Finally top with the parmesan and romano cheeses.
Bake at 425° for 10-12 minutes. Remove from the oven and top with the additional cup of arugula.
Slice in and get down on this bad boy!
Great combination in life, especially amazing on pizza!
Yeah, a got a little picture happy with this one!
♣ Vegetarian Option: Remove the prosciutto and replace with red onions for a delicious vegetarian pizza.
♦ Gluten Free Option: Replace the flour with a gluten-free flour blend for a crust that will come out similar to my Gluten Free Italian Garlic Rolls or replace the crust completely with my cauliflower based Gluten Free Pizza Crust.
