Homemade pizza is one of my favorite things to make. It is an interactive and fun way to cook dinner with friends and family. Making pizza dough from scratch is nothing to be apprehensive or get discouraged about. It’s quite simple to use active dry yeast and only takes 30 minutes to rise. Plus, homemade anything always tastes better!
For this recipe, I wanted to mix things up a bit and use pesto instead of traditional red sauce. Since basil is not in season, I opted to for a winter pesto that uses peppery arugula. Mozzarella cheese, asiago cheese, and thinly sliced prosciutto are the toppings for this whole wheat crusted pizza.
