Thin crust pizza with fresh mozzarella, parmesan, arugula, and a splash of fresh lemon juice-who wants a slice?
I am always looking for new pizza inspiration because Josh requests pizza for dinner almost every single day. I like pizza, but I need some variety in my life:) When I was in Austin this summer, I had the best arugula pizza. I couldn’t stop thinking about it so I made my own Lemon Arugula Pizza at home. It cured my pizza craving after one slice. Ok, maybe two slices. I had to eat more than one slice, the pizza was too good.
I am lucky Josh loves eating and making pizza. He always makes the pizza dough. His first job was at Little Caesar’s, but I promise his pizza is WAY better:) I am glad he was young and didn’t take any pizza tips from them..ha!
We always use Gold Medal’s Better For Bread Flour to make our pizza dough. It makes the best pizza crust!
I wanted a thin crust pizza so Josh rolled it out thin and cooked it on our pizza crisper pan. You can make a thicker crust if you wish, just roll out the dough to your desired thickness.
We topped the pizza with a drizzle of olive oil, fresh mozzarella cheese, and parmesan cheese. We baked the pizza until the cheese was melted and the crust was crisp!
Josh pulled the pizza out of the oven and I topped it with arugula, fresh lemon juice, and freshly grated parmesan. Josh cut the pizza into slices and we had a family pizza party!
I seriously love everything about this pizza. The flavors are fresh and simple. Josh wasn’t sure he would like a “salad” on his pizza, but he was pleasantly surprised by my Lemon Arugula Pizza. He loved it and so did Caleb! Caleb was shouting “pizza” and “bite” during our dinner. He couldn’t get enough! I am glad my boys enjoyed my pizza creation!
Make Lemon Arugula Pizza for your next pizza party! It was a hit at our house!
