On Friday night, sometimes all you want to do is hang out, eat some pizza and watch a good movie. With this recipe, pizza night doesn’t have to be boring! Inspired by a Cooking Light recipe, this Apple and Arugula Pizza will completely turn your Friday night pizza on it’s head. The tart apples and soft goat cheese play off each other perfectly, while the toasted pecans add just the right amount of crunch.
Hope you have a great Friday night! Any movie recommendations for us to watch this weekend? Leave them in the comments below!
- Whole wheat pizza dough (Store bought or homemade-my favorite homemade recipe is from Martha Stewart)
- 4 tablespoons pecans
- 2 cups thinly sliced apples (Fuji or Pink Lady would be great)
- 1 and a 1/2 cups crumbled goat cheese
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon honey dijon mustard
- 1 and a 1/2 teaspoon honey
- 2 and a 1/2 cups arugula
Pre-heat oven to 450 Degrees.
On a baking sheet prepared with baking spray, toast the pecans for a few minutes until fragrant. Save on the side until later.
Prepare your pizza baking pan by spraying it with a non-stick spray.
Stretch your pizza dough until it fits nicely on your baking pan.
Bake the dough for about 4 minutes.
While baking, thinly slice the apples.
Remove baking pan from oven and arrange apples on the dough.
Next, top with the goat cheese.
Bake for 8 minutes.
While baking, combine olive oil, dijon mustard, honey and whisk well.
Remove pizza from oven.
Top with arugula, drizzle with olive oil mixture and lastly, top with toasted pecans.
Enjoy your pizza night at home 🙂
