White Pizza with Arugula Salad

White pizza is sort of one of my favorite things, but I hadn't made it from scratch until now. It's garlicky and savory and wow so good. The arugula pushes it over the edge. It's peppery and I topped it with lemon and olive oil for a tangy twist.

Already looking awesome

I made my pizza with the dough they sell at Publix. If you want to make it homemade, you can, of course, but I didn't have the time or a rolling pin. I also didn't have a pizza pan, so instead we're having a weird oblong oval pizza. You end up with oddly shaped slices, but oh well.

Hello beautiful
You need to make this. It'll fill your kitchen (and potentially the entire residence hall) with an amazing smell. Praise. You can eat it naked, as above, or add the arugula salad like I did. So so good either way.

Salad Pizza
1 pizza dough
3 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp garlic, minced
1/2 cup ricotta
1/2 cup mozzarella, shredded
1/2 cup Parmesan, shredded
1/2 cup arugula
1 tbsp lemon juice
salt and pepper

  1. Stretch the dough to fit the pan. It should be about 1/4 inch thick.
  2. Drizzle about 2 tbsp of the oil on the dough. Add 2 tbsp of the garlic.
  3. Spread the ricotta onto the dough.
  4. Sprinkle the mozzarella on top, then add half the Parmesan.
  5. Bake at 400 degrees for 18 minutes.
  6. Once out of the oven, add the remaining garlic and Parmesan.
  7. Cool slightly, then add the arugula to the warm pizza.
  8. Drizzle lemon juice and oil onto arugula, and add salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
