Arugula Spinach Pizza

Greens on top of greens on top of greens is the best way to describe this pizza!
Such a good mix of my favorites without being so blahh!!
I didn't add goat cheese because for some reason the thought creeps me out :o)



  • 1Tbsp Butter
  • 1Tbsp Flour
  • 1 Clove garlic- minced
  • Fresh Ground Black Pepper
  • Dash of Nutmeg
  • 6 Tbsp Freshly Grated Parmesan
  • 3/4 Cup milk
  • Salt 


  • Favorite Pizza Dough
  • Olive Oil for Brushing
  • 1/2 Cup Packed Spinach-Arugula Mix
  • 1 Cup Small Broccoli Florets
  • 2 oz Crumbled Goat Cheese
  • 2 oz Shredded Mozzarella- I used a Fresh ball since I didn't use the goat cheese
  • Handful of Grated Parmesan
  • Flour for Dusting Surface
  • Chicken or shrimp (optional)


  1. Place pizza stone in oven at 400 for about 20-30 minutes. No stone? Use baking sheet (don't preheat)
  2. Heat butter and garlic in small sauce pan over medium heat.
  3. Once butter is melted whisk in flour, pepper and dash of nutmeg- let cook for about 1 min.
  4. Slowly stream in milk while whisking until smooth.  Let cook until bubbly and thickened- about 3-4 min. Continue to whisk frequently.
  5. Whisk in Parmesan until melted & add salt to taste.  Remove from heat and set aside.
  6. Dusk baking sheet and stretch dough into either round or square size.'
  7. Brush 1 inch border of olive oil around the edge of pizza dough.
  8. Spread white sauce onto the dough almost to edge (may have some leftover) 
  9. Lay spinach leaves evenly followed by broccoli, mozzarella, goat cheese & Parmesan. If adding extras like chicken or shrimp add these now.. Lastly add arugula leaves and can add extra sauce on top
  10. Transfer pizza to stone if using one and place back in oven
  11. Bake 7-9 minutes or until edges are brown
  12. Remove from oven & slice!
Pre oven Pizza.. Forgot to take a picture of after (I ate it too fast!!)

Let me know what extras you put on it??
