Prosciutto Arugula Pizza

Sharing is caring!

Forget store bought or take out pizza and make this Prosciutto Arugula Pizza for pizza night. The salty prosciutto and peppery arugula pair nicely with the mozzarella and parmesan cheese. This is one of my favorite pizza combinations! 

Prosciutto Arugula Pizza - so good

Prosciutto Arugula Pizza

We are back from sunny Florida and I am trying to get back into the swing of things. I will admit this time around it has been extremely hard to come back to reality. I am not totally sure why but I just haven’t been able to get myself back into the groove.

Today’s Prosciutto Arugula Pizza definately helps a little! This is one of my favorite pizza combinations that we make at home.  When I lived in Chicago Mariano’s was my favorite grocery store. I miss it now that I live in Ohio. One of the pizzas that they sold was a combination very similar to today’s Prosciutto Arugula Pizza.

I love the salty prosciutto paired with the peppery arugula and the mozzarella and parmesan cheese. The pizza crust is brushed with an olive oil and garlic combination which gives the crust good flavor. I also tossed the arugula with a little drizzle of olive oil and lemon juice adding a touch of sweetness.

When Will has basketball or swimming, pizza is one of my go-to meals that I make. It is so easy to throw together and bakes in under 10 minutes. I tend to buy one of two things: the frozen pizza dough crust from Trader Joes or Whole Foods or Naan Pizza Crust. I love both options and they are easy to use. Feel free to use whatever pizza dough crust you like!

Keep this recipe in your back pocket for the busy days during the week. I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Yield: 8
Prep Time: 8 minutes
Cook Time: 6 minutes
Total Time: 14 minutes

Forget store bought pizza and make this Prosciutto Arugula Pizza for pizza night. The salty prosciutto and peppery arugula pair nicely with the mozzarella and parmesan cheese. This is one of my favorite pizza combinations!


  • 1 - 12 inch pizza crust of your choice {homemade or store bought}
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil + 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup arugula
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Dash of pepper
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1 oz. prosciutto, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup freshly shredded parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl mix together the 1 Tablespoon olive oil and the 2 minced garlic cloves. Using a brush spread the garlic olive oil mixture evenly on top of the pizza crust.
  3. Sprinkle the 1 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese over the pizza crust and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and the crust is just browning.
  4. While the pizza cooks mix the arugula, 1/2 teaspoon olive oil, salt, a dash of pepper and lemon juice in a medium mixing bowl. Set aside.
  5. Remove the pizza from the oven and sprinkle with a layer of arugula, prosciutto and then the freshly shredded parmesan cheese. Enjoy!


You can use more prosciutto if you like to have more on your pizza.
Another option to pizza dough is to use Naan. Some brands {Stonefire being one} make a pizza naan that works great.
