Arugula & Prosciutto Pizza

This is hands down our favorite pizza to make. The lemon and arugula are a great combination, and who can say no to prosciutto? We use premade Publix multigrain pizza dough, which crisps up nicely and holds up to a solid amount of topping.

Original recipe from Food Network Magazine.
1 recipe pizza dough, room temperature
cornmeal (for rolling)
olive oil
spices & herbs for crust (red pepper flakes, rosemary, oregano, coarse salt, pepper, etc.)
1/2 block low-moisture whole milk mozzarella, cut into thick slices

large handful arugula
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 shallot, minced

2. Dust rolling surface with cornmeal. Roll out pizza dough to 1/4 thickness.
3. Quickly pull pizza stone from oven, place dough on stone, and return to oven.
