The Best Pizza Ever!

We made the most amazing pizza last night. I wish we would have made two because I could’ve eaten it for days! We have made variations of this artisan style pizza before, but this is the perfect combo! If you like prosciutto, pesto, goat cheese and arugula, then you will love this!

The cool thing about this is it can be as homemade or store bought as you want ingredient wise. If you have the time and want to make your own pizza dough and pesto go for it. If not… which is how I was feeling on a Monday 🙂 then I just picked up fresh made dough and pesto from Whole Foods.

The other thing that made this amazing is that we cooked it on a ceramic pizza stone. This really makes all the difference and you’ll feel like your pizza came right out of the wood fired brick pizza oven. You can use the stone on the grill if it’s big enough or oven. We used the oven b/c the stone is too big for our grill.

Okay here we go!


  • Fresh pizza dough
  • Arugula
  • Pesto
  • Goat cheese – we used this one and it was amazing
  • Tomatoes, sliced thin
  • 3-5 slices of prosciutto depending on your size of pizza
  • Olive oil
  • Sea salt
  • Cornmeal

artisan pizza recipe

Step 1: Roll out your dough with cornmeal and place it on your pizza stone or tray (or you could throw it on the grill!)


Step 2: Bake the crust for 10 minutes at 400 degrees before putting the toppings on

Step 3: Take the partially baked crust out and spread the pesto on the pizza, then top with the prosciutto, tomatoes and cheese


Step 4: Finish baking the pizza until golden brown and the cheese is melted


Step 5: Top the pizza with arugula, a drizzle of olive oil and sea salt


Step 6: Serve and enjoy!



I hope you love this pizza as much as we do!
