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