  • 1 pound Quick Basic Pizza Dough, or store bought pizza dough, fresh or frozen (thawed)
  • Olive oil
  • 1 cup grape or cherry tomatoes
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red-pepper flakes
  • 3 cups baby arugula (2 ounces)
  • 3 ounces Pecorino Romano cheese, shaved
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees, with racks in upper and lower thirds. Divide dough into four equal pieces. Using your hands, stretch each piece into a 5-inch disk.

  2. Brush two rimless baking sheets with oil. Place disks of dough on baking sheets; brush dough lightly with oil. Using your hands, crush tomatoes in a bowl; season with salt and pepper. Spread tomatoes on dough; sprinkle with red-pepper flakes. Bake, rotating sheets from top to bottom and front to back halfway through, until crusts are golden, 18 to 20 minutes.

  3. Toss arugula with cheese; divide among pizzas. Drizzle with vinegar and oil.

    Where is the recipe that Sarah used in making this pizza? It looked easy to work with. I think it had 2 pkts of yeast, 4 cups flour . . . .
