Arugula and Ricotta Flatbread Pizza



A healthy twist on pizza, this flatbread pizza dish will become a dinner stable in your home! Peppery arugula and creamy ricotta steal the show and make this easy recipe an instant, sophisticated meal.

Ingredients:
Flatbread (store-bought)
Olive oil
Salt
Pepper
A few cloves of garlic
1 small red onion
1/2 cup of arugula per flatbread
4 teaspoons of ricotta cheese per flatbread
1/4 cup of mozzarella cheese per flatbread

Kitchen Essentials:
Kitchen brush
Garlic press
Knife
Cutting board
Oven
Baking sheet
Spoon
Aluminium foil
Pizza cutter

Prep:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Rinse the arugula and pat dry. Next, chop the arugula, onions and garlic.

Directions:
Remove the flatbread from the package and place on a baking sheet lined with aluminium foil. Drizzle the bread with a little bit of olive oil and brush making sure the entire flatbread is covered. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Next, add the chopped onions and garlic and spread with a spoon. Top with mozzarella cheese and pieces of arugula. With a spoon, place small mountains of ricotta cheese over the flatbread pizza. Drizzle some olive oil over the pizza. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until the cheese has melted and the edges are golden brown. After the pizza comes out of the oven, top with a few leaves of arugula for garnish.
