I don’t recognise if pizza matches into your “Healthy January” eats, however it certainly matches into mine.
Don’t you notice all these greens? And these veggies beneath the greens, and these recent herbs, and that lemon? This is a precise salad pizza, and honestly, it’s the sort of pizza of my dreams. I’ve been yearning pizza the final few weeks, and I may now not love this one more. It’s everything I may ever desire from a pizza.
Oddly, this pizza was impressed by my quickly to be sister in-law, who’s recently doing a 3-day juice cleanse. Yesss, 3 days of nothing but juice! There’s nothing that sounds worse to me than ingesting simply fluids for three entire days. I quite don’t suppose I may do it. Thankfully for you guys, I even have no plans of juice cleanses here, and simply see further pizzas in my future.

Truthfully, I don’t quite imagine in these juice cleanses or new year’s diets. I recognise that everybody is different, and has other well being needs, but I’m a lot further about having fun with actual food, and everything in moderation. I quite sense that if we limit the meals we quite want, we’ll one, be unhappy, and two, supply up up binge ingesting and or growing unhealthy ingesting habits. Again, I get that everybody one’s different, but I suppose you ought to devour what makes you quite sense your best. For me, that plenty of greens and vegetables, colourful fruits, wholesome grains, and yes, cheese too. Sorry, no liquid diets for three days for me!
Who’s with me? I polled on Instagram and 99.5% of you’re with me so far. GREAT. So let’s discuss pizza!

As I said, this pizza was impressed by my very quickly to be sister-in-law, Lyndsie (the marriage ceremony is in September). She now not simply loves pizza, but loves a nice arugula salad, general with artichokes, recent herbs, and a lemon vinaigrette. When I was brainstorming pizza ideas, I concept why now not combine that combo right into a pesto pizza with burrata and arugula on top.
It sounded too good, so right the following we’re today. The pizza with salad on top.
I topped do-it-yourself pizza dough (it’s entire wheat…so healthier, right?!) with a beneficiant quantity of basil pesto, inexperienced olives, just a bit child spinach, and marinated artichokes. Then I threw it into the pizza oven and baked it till the crust was crisp at the outside, but tender and chewy within the center.

As quickly simply due to the fact it comes out of the oven, upload the burrata. Allow the cheese to sit atop the pizza for a couple of minutes to melt. Oh so heavenly.
Now, since I recognise I gets requested this question, yes you possibly can use one other cheese like recent mozzarella. But earlier than you do, simply examine together with your native grocery shop to see in the event that they hold burrata cheese. It’s frequently bought nearly anywhere now, so I suppose most of you ought to be capable to discover it! And belief me, it’s soooo price locating, simply due to the fact burrata cheese is like no other. Think mozzarella at the outside, but creamy ricotta at the inside. So good!

Moving past the cheese and onto the greens.
While the pizza is baking, blend up that lemony arugula topping. It’s a actually easy blend of olive oil, lemon, recent arugula, basil, dill, a pinch of overwhelmed red pepper flakes – for heat, and toasted pine nuts for just a bit crunch.
It’s herby, with a lemony, peppery bite. Perfect atop a veggie stuffed burrata pizza pie.
And with that, I recognise it’s simply Thursday, but Thursday evening time pizza is sounding quite nice to me.
