So by now, I’m guessing you notice that I am of Italian descent. I just love making (and eating!) classic Italian dishes. This prosciutto arugula pizza is no different! It always reminds me of my childhood. Sitting around the dinner table with my family. Dinnertime was always a big a deal growing up. Everyone has to show up, there’s no skipping out! And you better show up hungry. 🙂
Friday nights were always homemade pizza nights.
Nothing to complain about there! There is nothing quite like homemade pizza. Am I right? Well my mom not only made homemade pizza every Friday night, but she always made the dough from scratch too! You really cannot beat the fluffiness and deliciousness of homemade pizza dough. That being said, if you’re pressed for time, you may use store bought. It’s not always realistic to make everything from scratch, ever time. But either way, I assure you, this prosciutto arugula pizza is a crowd pleaser!
So, we’ve covered homemade dough. Now let’s talk about homemade tomato sauce. YUM. Of course, we make large batches of homemade tomato sauce because you’re just not Italian if you don’t! Kidding!! But yes, naturally, if using homemade dough, we’re also using homemade sauce. Which you can learn all about in my step by step guide to making homemade tomato sauce.
This pizza topping combination is a classic one.
Not only is it deliciously savoury, but the arugula adds a freshness that you just can’t beat. The combo is seriously heavenly. I urge you to try it.
When baking your pizza, if you’re feeling brave enough of course! Remove the pizza from the tray in the last couple minutes of baking. This will give you the most delicious well done crust imaginable. If you do decide to try this, use extreme caution and check often. Without the tray, the crust will cook fast. Be very careful when removing it from the oven as well. Just slide it back onto your pizza tray or cutting board.
