Recipe: Pizza with prosciutto & arugula

Pizza with prosciutto & arugula

I’m a sucker for good pizza. You know the kind – savoury toppings, thin crust, perfectly melted cheese. Ever wondered how to make pizza at home? I know I have! My parents came over for dinner on Labour Day, which seemed like the perfect time to try making some… since I needed food that didn’t require eating at a kitchen table, because in our tiny condo, we don’t have one!

I got all the basic ingredients for this at my local Loblaws (we go to the gorgeous one at Maple Leaf Gardens.) They sell the perfect amount of pre-cooked pizza dough, sauce and mozzarella – pick those up and you’ll make your job a lot easier at home. We also grabbed some President’s Choice za’atar spice blend, which is a delicious Middle Eastern mix of dried thyme, roasted sesame seeds, and a few other yummy things:
