Instead of going out for pizza, try this Arugula-Tomato Pizza, an easy 30 minute vegetarian option. I love using Mama Mary’s Pizza crusts which you can typically find near the deli section of the grocery store. They are quick and easy and not too high in calories, fat or carbohydrates. Arugula is so healthy for you, full of Vitamins A, C, K, Calcium and Iron. Arugula is said to be great for your eyesight and full of antioxidants which can help prevent cancer. It’s my daughter’s newest favorite salad green, so try to get your kids to taste it too!
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 cup pizza or marinara sauce
2 cups fresh baby arugula
2 Roma tomatoes, thinly sliced
3/4 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese
3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
2. Drizzle crust with olive oil, and spread evenly with sauce. Sprinkle evenly with arugula, tomatoes and mushrooms. Top evenly with goat and mozzarella cheese.
3. Place pizza directly on oven rack and bake 7 to 10 minutes or until cheese melts and crust is golden. Top with crushed red pepper flakes, if desired, slice and serve warm.
