green apples, Brie, walnuts + arugula on pizza = heaven

You don’t have to make your own crust. I just felt like it {and didn’t feel like going to the store to buy pizza crust}.

I included the recipe for the pizza crust I made, which I think has been my favorite that I’ve made to date.

These would be great for entertaining friends or just yourself.

I won’t judge, especially since I made 4 pizzas and initially intended to call some friends to see if they wanted some… but after tasting it, I’m pretty sure that unless they come to my apartment, I will not be sharing these.

But I will gladly make these again when I polish these babies off…

I don’t even have to say “enjoy!” because I absolutely know that you will!

Ingredients (Serves 4)

  • cornmeal
  • 1 lb. whole wheat pizza dough {or 4 pre-made whole wheat pizza crusts}
  • 1 TBSP olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 tsp salt {omit if using store-bought crusts}
  • 1/4 cup part-skim shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 2 medium green apples, very thinly sliced {peel on}
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, divided
  • 4 ounces Brie, thinly sliced
  • 4 cup {about 3 ounces} baby arugula, washed
  • juice from 1/2 lemon

Instructions

Preheat oven to 450°F. Spray 2 baking sheets with oil & sprinkle with cornmeal if desired. Set aside

Roll dough into four 8 to 10 inch circles. Let rest 10 minutes, then re-roll and transfer to prepared baking sheets. Spread 1/2 tsp {for each pizza} olive oil over the 4 pizza crusts. Sprinkle all 4 pizza crusts evenly with salt.

Sprinkle 1 TBSP mozzarella each on all 4 pizza crusts. Arrange apple slices on each crust in one layer over mozzarella. Sprinkle each pizza with 1 TBSP walnuts each. Top each pizza evenly with Brie {about 1 oz. each}.

Transfer to oven and bake for 9-12 minutes, until crust is lightly browned and cheese is bubbling.

Meanwhile, toss arugula with remaining 1 tsp olive oil and juice from 1/2 lemon. Set aside.

When pizza is ready, sprinkle with arugula, cut into slices, and serve.

{Almost} Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

Print this recipe

Ingredients (Serves 4-6)

  • 1 package yeast
  • 3/4 cup {subtract 1 TBSP if you live in a humid area} warm water {105-115°F ~ it should feel like bathtub water}
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour or white whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup unbleached bread flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • cornmeal, optional

Instructions

In the bowl of an electric mixer, add the yeast, water, and honey. Let sit until the yeast bubbles, about 5-10 minutes. {If your yeast never bubbles, it is dead & you need a new packet of yeast}

Add in olive oil and whole wheat pastry flour. Using the dough hook on the mixer, mix until just combined. Add in remaining flour and salt.

Mix on low for 4-5 minutes. Dough should be slightly sticky but not clinging to the bowl. Add a tablespoon or two more of flour if it is extremely sticky {like if you touch it, it sticks to your finger and is really hard to get the dough off your finger}

Take dough out of mixer and transfer to a bowl sprayed lightly with olive oil. Cover lightly with a towel and set aside for 30-60 minutes.

Once the ball of dough has doubled in size, punch it down and cut it into 4 or 6 balls of dough.

Roll the dough out into 8-10 inch circles. Let rest for 10 minutes and re-roll.

Preheat oven to 450°F and spray 2 baking sheets with oil & sprinkle with cornmeal, if desired {this helps the pizza come off the pan a little easier}.

Top with toppings and bake for 10-12 minutes in a preheated oven until golden brown.
