Number of Servings
makes 1 pizza
1/2 recipe pizza dough
6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
2 bunches arugula, washed
1/2 red onion, sliced thin
2 plum tomatoes, diced small
2 slices prosciutto, julienned
2 ounces Asiago cheese, shredded

Preheat a grill, having one side prepared with indirect heat. Rub a tablespoon of olive oil on each side of the dough. Place the dough on the grill (not over the direct flame) and close the lid. Cook for a couple of minutes, then turn it over and close the lid. Transfer to a plate and set aside. Combine the remaining 4 tablespoons oil with the vinegar, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl and whisk together. Add the arugula, onion, tomatoes, prosciutto, and Asiago. Toss the salad in the dressing and transfer it to the cooked dough.
