Servings: 4 appetizers or 2 main courses
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 15 min
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

1/2   frozen store-bought pizza dough, defrosted
3 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for grilling
6 ounce fresh mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced
1 cup cherry tomatoes cut crosswise
1   large red onion, thinly sliced
3   cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 cup pitted black olives (recommended: kalamata)
2 tablespoon capers, drained
1   bunch arugula
Salt and freshly ground black pepper





Heat grill to 350 degrees F.

Place 1/2 the defrosted dough on an oiled baking sheet. Stretch out the dough to form a rough rectangle almost the size of the baking sheet, about 9 by 13 inches. Lift the dough from the baking sheet, from 1 end and carefully place it on the grill. When the bottom is browned, around 3 to 5 minutes, using a tongs, turn the pizza crust over. Continue cooking for about 1 minute, or until the second side begins to brown. Using tongs move the crust to a cooler area of the gill and brush it with olive oil. Add half of the toppings, beginning with the mozzarella, then the tomato, red onion, garlic, olives, and capers. After 2 to 4 minutes, the cheese will be melted. Slide the pizza onto a baking sheet; place half of the arugula on top and season with salt and pepper. Repeat with the other 1/2 of dough.
