It’s almost that time again! Are your libraries packed? Stocked up on red bull and coffee? Time to study and learn all of that vital information you forgot when you were cooking reindeer cookies and eggnog! What’s important to remember is that you have got to fuel your body with amazing food to ace all of your finals. William Sonoma’s Arugula Prosciutto Pizza is my favorite meal to make whenever I need a satisfying and and salty bite! If you don’t have time to make your own pizza dough, use a pre-made pizza and follow the cooking directions on the package. Personally, I like to use a little goat cheese on the warm pizza dough before putting the arugula and prosciutto on top! Take a break and recharge your brain and bod, you need it!
1/2 batch thin-crust pizza dough (see related Williams-Sonoma recipe)
All-purpose flour for dusting
Olive oil for brushing
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
3 1/2 ounces mozzarella cheese, grated
6 ounces arugula
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
2 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto (about 4 large slices)
1 ounce Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, shaved with a vegetable peeler
- Prepare a hot fire in a grill and preheat a pizza stone for at least 30 minutes, until the thermometer on the stone registers 500°F.
- Using a rolling pin or your hands, gently roll out or stretch the dough into a 10-inch round. Lightly dust a pizza peel with flour and lay the dough on top. Lightly brush the dough with olive oil. Scatter the onion over the dough and top with the mozzarella cheese, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Carefully slide the pizza onto the preheated pizza stone, cover the grill and bake until the crust is golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes.
- Using a pizza peel, transfer the pizza to a cutting board and cut into slices. In a bowl, toss together the arugula, olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper and scatter evenly over the pizza. Cut each slice of prosciutto in half lengthwise and drape over the arugula. Top with the Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and serve immediately. Serves 2.
