You may be thinking, pizza and mixed greens? I understand spinach, but greens? Yes! Greens and herbs! Let me tell you, they bring great flavor to the pizza. The arugula adds a zesty, slightly spicy spin and the herbs bring out the savory pop of the cherry tomatoes! After slicing the baby heirloom tomatoes, I added thinly sliced, fresh mozzarella cheese. You can even Julienne more of the mixed greens to sprinkle over the top.

Sprinkle with a little oregano and crushed red pepper flakes and you’re ready to bake!

My pizza took just 10 minutes at 450 degrees. That’s what I call a quick and easy meal!
