Last night was build your own pizza and grill it night. We use Flatouts for our crusts because they are thin and small enough for a little personal pizza. We love doing this because everyone gets to eat exactly what they want. I am not one to eat heavy pizza very often. So, I especially love this because I can keep my toppings fresh and my cheese to a minimum.


Arugula Balsamic Tomato Pizza

  • 1 Flatout pizza crust
  • Olive oil for brushing
  • 1 vine ripe tomato
  • 5 small balls fresh mozzarella, cut in half
  • 1 Tbsp Fig Balsamic Vinegar (or any balsamic vinegar of your liking)
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • Handful of baby arugula, chopped

Follow the instructions on your flatout pizza crust. I grilled the crust, plain, for 1 minute. Seriously, 1 minute. Then I added my toppings. I brushed with olive oil. Laid the sliced tomatoes on the crust. Added the 10 halves of mozzarella. Drizzle the balsamic vinegar over the whole pizza. I placed mine on a baking pan because my grill gets very hot very fast. This keeps the crust from getting too burnt. While allowing the cheese to melt. The vinegar seems to soak through a touch, so watch the pizza and every few seconds use a spatula to lift under the crust.

Once the cheese is a bit melted and the tomatoes have softened (3-4 minutes) remove from grill and add the arugula. Drizzle the lemon juice over the whole thing. Enjoy!
