White Pizza with Arugula

Mmmm....we had some yummy white pizza last night! It was an Ina Garten recipe from her "Back to Basics" cookbook that I got for Christmas last year. It is so good.   

Instead of using Ina's pizza crust, I went with old faithful: Pioneer Woman's crust. It's the best, and works perfectly every time. While the dough was rising, I made some spicy garlic oil.

When the dough was rolled out, I brushed it with the oil, and covered it with three different cheeses: mozzarella, fontina, and goat cheese.

I baked this guy at 500 degrees for about 15 minutes. It was perfect.

I love the golden cheese bubbles!

For the arugula, I made a quick lemon dressing, then tossed it with some arugula and served it straight from  the container,  so we could have as much, or as little as we wanted.

This is a great pizza. And it looks kind of fancy, don't you think?

   Check out what else I made from Ina's cookbook last night. Honey Vanilla Pound Cake anyone?

Yes please! But more on that later...
