Arugula & Prosciutto Pizza

Serves 6


  • 1 pound prepared pizza dough, preferably whole wheat
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 2 ounces very thinly slice prosciutto, cut into thin strips (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 cup shredded fontina or part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped arugula
  • 1 cup chopped tomato


  1. Position over rack in the lowest position; preheat to 450 degrees. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to about the size of the baking sheet. Transfer to baking sheet. Bake until puffed and lightly crisped on the bottom, 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion, prosciutto and crushed red pepper and cook, stirring, until the onion is beginning to brown. Around 3 minutes.
  4. Spread the onion mixture evenly over the crust and top with cheese. Bake until crispy and golden and the cheese is melted, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and top with arugula and tomato.
