When the moon hits your eye…

Hopefully you can finish the rest of that lyric…”like a big pizza pie, that’s amore!” (if not, hang your head in shame then immediately look up “That’s Amore” by Dean Martin and learn it!) So, one of the biggest things I miss about living up north is good pizza! Boy it is hard to find in Florida let me tell you, so I have resorted to making it myself at home. Thankfully our trusty neighborhood Publix has fresh refrigerated pizza dough in white or whole wheat so I just picked up a few of those and got to work. This pizza is delicious and super easy so here goes…

(I should first preface this by saying if you don’t like goat cheese stop reading here…what’s wrong with you?!learn to love it because it’s amazing)

Now back to the recipe, you will need…


1 pizza dough homemade or store-bought
1 bag organic baby arugula
1 jar fig jam (you could also add real figs if they’re in season at your local market)
About five slices of very thin prosciutto 1 small hunk of goat cheese (I don’t know what the size is that it’s sold in but you know what I mean)


Preheat oven to 425. Spread to dough out on a stone or cookie sheet, drizzle with a little olive oil, and bake in the oven by itself for about 10-15 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the oven and spread liberally with fig jam then goat cheese. Lay out prosciutto in strips randomly along the top of the pizza and put back in the oven for about 8 minutes (just until the cheese has melted and the prosciutto has gotten crispy) then remove from the oven and top with as much arugula as you’d like. Serve and enjoy, doesn’t get much easier than that! This is a great weeknight meal but would also be an awesome party appetizer cut into smaller pieces.
