Ingredients
  • 1 whole wheat naan
  • ⅓ cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • ⅓ cup fontina cheese, grated
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 5 sprigs thyme (no need to remove the leaves)
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
  • 2 cups arugula
  • For the dressing:
  • 1½ teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon finely minced shallot
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  2. Place your whole wheat naan on a baking sheet, and when the oven is preheated, bake the naan for 5 minutes to crisp it up a bit
  3. Meanwhile, add your olive oil, garlic, pepper flakes, and thyme into a small skillet over medium heat
  4. Lightly cook the garlic, pepper flakes and thyme so it infuses the oil. Stop just as the garlic is turning a light golden brown. Don't cook this on a high temperature or the garlic will brown before the oil can infuse well
  5. Remove the naan from the oven, and brush the infused olive oil all across the top
  6. Lightly season with salt and pepper
  7. Top evenly with your fontina and parmesan cheese
  8. Bake for 10 minutes
  9. Meanwhile, combine your dressing ingredients in bowl and whisk together. Season to taste with salt and pepper
  10. When the pizza comes out of the oven, let it sit for a few minutes. When ready to serve, slice the pizza and toss the arugula with the dressing (you may not want to use all the dressing - it will depend on how dressed you like your salads and how packed your cups of arugula were)
  11. Top the pizza liberally with the arugula salad - it will be large pile on top (you can't have too much)!
