After trying this homemade pizza with healthier, whole wheat dough and high quality toppings, you can forget the local delivery place. Peppery, fresh arugula salad would usually make a great side dish, but it’s even better when placed on top, just like they do in Italy. Try your luck at stretching the dough on the backs of your hands and tossing it in the air—it’s fun and makes the crust extra thin.
