With two kids to care for during the day, it can be difficult to find time to exercise. I had finally found a series of exercise videos I liked doing on youtube, only to have them taken down for copyright infringement. I guess I could be a good person and just go buy them, but I’m looking for something a little low cost to do. In the meantime, I’ve had two babies and I love butter and sugar, so I need to do something to keep my physique in check. Until I find a new way to work out, it will have to be healthy eating.
I made a salad that tastes like pizza. Or a pizza that tastes like salad. I’m not sure which. Why does one sounds like a good idea and the other bad?
Be honest, you only like eating a salad if it has croutons on it. This pizza is like a big crouton with a salad on top.
When the pizza comes out of the oven it gets topped with spicy arugula and a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese and crushed red pepper. Its melty, spicy, crunchy, healthy happiness.
Tomato, Onion, and Arugula Pizza
One pound whole wheat pizza dough
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 roma tomatoes, sliced thin
One small yellow onion, halved and thinly sliced
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
2 cups arugula
Preheat oven to 425ºF. Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray, or use a pizza stone.
Stretch pizza dough to fit prepared pan. Drizzle with two tablespoons olive oil and use a basting brush to spread it evenly over dough. Arrange tomatoes in a single layer and top with onions. Top with mozzarella cheese and drizzle with the final tablespoon of olive oil.
Bake in preheated oven for 10-15 minutes, or until desired crispness.
Top cut slices with a handful of arugula. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and crushed red pepper flakes if desired.
