Trader Joe's White Pizza with Prosciutto and Arugula

This recipe was modified from Martha Stewarts - Bianca Pizza. It's one our favorite pizza meals and it's a easy one stop shop to pick up all ingredients at Trader Joe's.  

Recipe and Tutorial

Pre-heat oven to 500

Ingredient list: 

  • All-purpose flour, for dusting and rolling
  • 1 pound pizza dough, thawed if frozen
  • 1/2 cup whole-milk ricotta cheese
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 garlic clove, minced
  • 6-7 slices thinly sliced prosciutto  ( or any kind of Italian cured meat)   
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella (6 ounces)
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan or Pecorino Romano (1 ounce)
  • 2 ounces baby arugula (2 cups)

this is what my shopping trip to Trader Joe's looked like. 

1 Spread a liberal amount of flour and pizza dough on hard surface and use a rolling pin to roll crust out as thin and large as you can.  

Transfer to baking sheet and bake for 10 mins to pre-bake the crust ( not necessary if you have a pizza oven - I don't ) 

2. While crust is pre-baking mix ricotta, olive oil, garlic, pepper together  and spread on baked crust. 

3.  Put prosciutto or cured meat on pizza and spread mozzarella cheese over the - the ricotta mixture then put the  Parmesan or Pecorino
4. Bake pizza on the oven rack - do not bake on cookie sheet for 20 mins until cheese is melted and golden brown. 
5. Add arugula cut and enjoy!
