Make It

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Sprinkle a large baking sheet with 1 Tbs. cornmeal. Roll 1 lb. fresh pizza dough to a 12-inch circle and place on the prepared pan.

2. Using a fork, prick the dough in several places. Brush dough with 2 tsp. olive oil. Bake for 10 minutes or until lightly golden and set. Spread 1/2 cup marinara sauce over the crust and sprinkle with 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese. Bake until edges are golden and crisp and cheese is melted, 6 to 8 minutes.

3. Toss 2 cups arugula with 1 Tbs. weekend-prepped vinaigrette. Top pizza with the arugula, 1/2 cup quartered cherry tomatoes, and 4 slices crisp cooked and crumbled bacon.


Picky Eater Strategy
  • Keep the arugula far away from the pizza (no touching!), and serve it as a side salad instead of on the pizza.
