Pizza with Squash, Arugula, and Rosemary

OK, I'll admit right off that we didn't have any arugula for this delicious pizza (hint, hint, Colvins :-) ). And, secondly, this is not really a way to use up squash so much as it's a way to entice your kids to try it. You will need very little for the pizza. But this is delicious and different from the usual pizza fare.

Pizza with Squash, Arugula, and Rosemary
~inspired by one from Food & Wine

  • 1 pizza crust, homemade or storebought
  • 2 oz. thinly sliced summer squash (~1/3 cup?)
  • handful arugula
  • 2 t. fresh rosemary
  • Parmesan cheese
  • mozzarella cheese
  • crushed red pepper flakes
  • sea salt
  1. Prebake the crust slightly if it's homemade.
  2. Finely shred Parmesan cheese over the whole crust--you want a decent coating here.
  3. Lay squash slices around on top of Parmesan.
  4. Sprinkle rosemary generously around on top of squash.
  5. Shred mozzarella over top of rosemary/squash.
  6. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes and a touch of salt.
  7. Add arugula, if using, on top.
  8. Bake at 450 degrees until cheese is melted and starting to brown.
