arugula stir fry pizza

I bought some beautiful arugula today at the Jean Talon market. It’s perfect for making pizza. So on my way home I picked up some pizza dough at the bakery.

Making pizza is quick, and even more so when you have ready-made dough.

While waiting for the flattened dough to rise a second time, I quickly stir fried a few veggies.

1 big onion chopped

all herbs from your garden (parsley, basil, chives, oregano…etc…)

2 or 3 cups of arugula (you can also use, swiss chard, spinach, or kale)

salt, pepper

parmesan cheese

mozzarella

______________________________________________________________________________

Preheat oven at 475*

Stir fry onions 

Add salt and pepper

Fold in herbs and arugula 

Spread mixture over pizza dough and sprinkle with parmesan cheese

Bake for about 15 minutes or until crispy

I usually add the mozzarella 5 minutes before the pizza is ready
