For Pizza:

  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 1 pound pizza dough
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • salt
  • 1/2 pound gouda, shredded
  • 1/4 pound mozzarella, shredded
  • 2 plums, sliced about 1/4-inch thick

For Salad:

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoon honey
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 2 cups lightly packed arugula


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Lightly coat a baking sheet with olive oil or nonstick spray.

Prepare Pizza:

  • Place walnuts in a medium pan over medium heat and cook until lightly toasted, watching closely and stirring frequently.
  • Remove walnuts from pan and chop roughly. Set aside.
  • Divide pizza dough into 4 equal pieces.
  • Place dough on baking sheet and press each piece into a circle about 7-inches in diameter. (Tip: if the dough doesn't want to stretch, let it rest for a few minutes while working on the other ingredients.)
  • Brush the dough with olive oil, then sprinkle lightly with salt.
  • Mix together gouda and mozzarella, then top dough with cheese.
  • Top cheese with sliced plums and chopped walnuts.
  • Bake pizzas for about 15 to 20 minutes or until bottom and edges are browned.
  • Remove pizzas from oven and allow to cool for a couple minutes before topping with salad.

Prepare Salad:

  • While pizza is cooking, whisk together olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Right before serving, toss arugula with dressing.
  • Serve pizzas topped with salad. Enjoy!
