Pepperoni, Onion & Arugula Wheat Crust Pizza

Talk about a yummy, yummy meal!  And the best thing about making a pizza at home is that you can control the ingredients to make it healthier!  Pizza is one of my favorite things to eat, and this recipe is so easy to make!  You can tweak it too and use ingredients that you love!

Pepperoni, Onion & Arugula Wheat Crust Pizza

Total Time: 23-30 min
Prep: 15 min
Cook: 8-14 min
Yield: 6-8 slices

Freschetta Artisan Pizza Crust (Golden Wheat)
6 ounces Prego Spicy Sausage Italian Sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/3 cup Sargento Sharp Cheddar
Pepperoni slices (I used Piggly Wiggly brand) (Enough for 2 rings around the pizza)
1/4 cup yellow onion (thinly sliced)
1/4 cup arugula (Stems removed)
1 cup Kraft Italian 5 Cheese

1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
2. Place the pizza crust on a baking sheet or a pizza stone (which is what I used).
3. Evenly spread the sauce on the crust leaving about 1 inch around the edge and top it with the garlic salt.
4. Sprinkle the cheddar cheese first. Then layer the pepperoni, onion and arugula. Top it off with the Italian 5 cheese blend.
5. Bake the pizza for 8-14 minutes. When it looks done, broil it for 2-3 minutes. (It will not take more than that, I promise!)
6. Let the pizza cool for about 5 minutes before cutting so the cheese stays intact. Enjoy!
