Expert Tips

Pricking the pizza dough, called docking, ensures the crust doesn’t puff up too much during the initial bake.

You can make a classic basil pesto for this pizza or even substitute baby spinach leaves for the arugula.

To make this come together even quicker in the future, make a double batch of the dough, prebake a naked crust for the first 8 minutes; cool, wrap, and freeze for a future "brinner."
