I didn’t get really turned on to arugula until this summer and now I can’t keep my grubby little hands off it! I continue to look for ways to incorporate this peppery green into my recipes. Each time I do, I am never disappointed! This elegant meal is sure to impress with it’s simplicity and nutrition profile. The few ingredients includes a store bought crust (yes, I said it) makes this even a killer weekday meal!
(A Managed Meal is a Nutritious Meal!)
MUSHROOM ARUGULA PIZZA
Trader Joe’s whole wheat pizza crust
2-3 T Olive oil
2 T Cornmeal
Mushrooms (you pick! I used white button but a blend would be primo)
Arugula (again, Trader Joe’s has an excellent value)
3/4 c. parmesan reggiano
Fresh thyme, salt, cracked pepper
Preheat oven to packaged crust directions. On pizza stone, or cooking sheet, brush with olive oil and sprinkle with the cornmeal. Roll dough to desired thickness. Brush crust with olive oil, season with cracked pepper and salt. Add mushroom and thyme.( I did not give measurements for these, use thyme generously!). Sprinkle with 1/2 c of the cheese, reserving 1/4. cup for later. Bake according to directions. Remove from oven. Top with arugula, sprinkle with remaining cheese and cracked pepper. Drizzle olive oil on top before serving.
fresh thyme. a perfect give from a friends garden. Look below. Can you see who came to take a nap on the ‘set?’ Stan!!!
Drizzle with olive oil before serving and pour yourself a glass of wine!
