Shiitake Mushroom and Arugula Pizza

Monday nights are my least favorite nights to cook because over the weekend we've made all our fun stuff and we have random bits and pieces of leftover ingredients. Here is a dish you can put together with very little time and is perfect for the after-work meal. It was inspired by my trip to ATL where we had the Nucci pizza at Varasano's Pizzeria, which is to die for.

Trader Joes Naan bread
Basil pesto (premade)
Shiitake mushrooms, sliced thinly
Mozzarella cheese (in our case we used left over queso asadero)
Sliced proscuitto
Baby arugula, washed and dried


1. Bake the frozen naan bread until dry and the outside feels somewhat crisp.

2. Spread basil pesto on the naan and top with shiitakes and cheese. Bake until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt.

3. Top with proscuitto and arugula right before serving.

Serve with salad and this could be your simple Monday dinner.
