Green Arugula Pizza

I’m so excited to share this pizza idea with you. I first made it on Family Food Live and had to share with you. This Green Arugula Pizza is so fresh and surprisingly tasty, you will want to make it for your family or girlfriends this weekend.

And did I mention it so simple and delicious!

It starts with a bowl of fresh arugula cleaned and dried.

I also used a pre-made pizza dough I bought on Amazon Fresh — by the way if you haven’t tried it yet, take advantage of the free 30-day trial to test it out.

I also pre-cooked this crust so it was nice and crispy. You don’t ever want to put your toppings on raw dough — it’s never worked out right for me.

Once the mozzarella and parmesan cheese is melted, it’s ready for the ultimate of toppings — arugula!

I love this Green Arugula Pizza for spring and summer. It’s perfect for Friday nights!
