Ingredients

  • One 9½-ounce ball pizza dough ball, homemade or store-bought
  • 1/2 cup quartered cherry tomatoes
  • 1 handful shredded, smoked mozzarella di bufala cheese
  • 1 pinch coarse Sicilian sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Fresh wild or baby arugula
  • Chef notes

    The smoked cheese goes wonderfully with the peppery arugula. It's like eating a salad and a pizza all at once. This pie is named for my wife, it's her favorite pizza to eat.

    Preparation

    1.

    Preheat oven to 550°F (or as hot as your home oven can get).

    2.

    Flatten pizza dough ball, leaving a rim around the edge. Top with cherry tomatoes, smoked mozzarella, salt and olive oil.

    3.

    Place the pie on a pizza stone and bake for 2-3 minutes.

    4.

    Remove from the oven, top with fresh arugula and serve immediately.
