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...
