Prosciutto-Arugula Pizza

In elementary school, I lived by a Pizza Hut with a small arcade. My dad always brought me there whenever my mom was out. He gave me several dollars to purchase game coins while we waited for our pizza. I never won anything big – just some bracelets (which broke in several days) and mini erasers (which would always get lost). That was good enough for me though! I’d have pizza at least once a week because on Thursdays, it was only $5 for a medium pizza. I mean, games and pizza?! I always looked forward to that day!

Fast forward to 23 year old Winnie and I STILL look forward to pizza! Sometimes I order pizza when I go out but other times, I like to make it myself at home. Instead of just a basic cheese or pepperoni pizza, I like to make it more special! I tried prosciutto and arugula on pizza and this has been one of my new favorites. I’ve never had prosciutto until this year… deprived I know.

This recipe uses a pre-made pizza crust so it was a quick easy meal!
