Pizza Number Two: Grilled Chicken, Tomato, and Baby Arugula

I honestly had sworn off pizza for the summer since I ate so much of it during the school year (pizza is one of the only edible things in the cafeteria).

But for some strange reason, I was craving pizza today. I bought fresh ready-made pizza dough (I did not make my own dough because I am too lazy and impatient to deal with yeast).

I put the dough onto a large parchemnt-lined sheet pan and flattened the dough with my hands to form the shape you see below. (I do not know how the pizza guys make their ever-so-fancy circular pie crusts). I decided to add grilled chicken breast (which I cut into bite-sized pieces), fresh tomato slices, and grated part skim mozzarella cheese to my pizza.

I baked my pizza in a 500°F oven for 20 minutes. I then added the baby arugula (which I had drizzled with balsamic vinegar and a little olive oil) to my pizza and baked the pizza for another 5 minutes (or until the pizza crust was golden brown and the cheese was all melted).

Who says you need to eat out to have good pizza?
