prosciutto-arugula-pizza-recipeFig, Prosciutto and Arugula: A little bit of sweet, a little bit of salty and a dash of pepper make this pizza a fun way to switch up your routine from the regular pepperoni or cheese. Once you have your pizza crust ready, drizzle on a little bit of olive oil and sprinkle it with salt and pepper. Add fig spread on the dough and then cover it with fresh mozzarella. Cook for 12 minutes, then add thinly sliced prosciutto and arugula. Let your pizza bake for 2-3 more minutes and serve hot!

Butternut Squash and Goat Cheese: The earthy yet sweet flavors in this pizza complement each other in a way that will have you wanting just one more slice! Brush your pizza dough with olive oil and spread pesto across the pizza. Dice up ½ of a butternut squash, toss it in balsamic vinegar and bake until squash is tender. Let it cool and add evenly to the pizza. Sprinkle with thinly sliced pancetta, goat cheese and leeks. Cook pizza, and add fresh cracked pepper and nutmeg on top before serving.

Brie and Cranberry: Why not have pizza as an appetizer or dessert? This fall-inspired pizza is perfect for either of those at a party. Remove the rind from Brie cheese, cut into ½-inch cubes and sprinkle all over the pizza. Cover that with cranberry sauce and sprinkle with pecans. Bake until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown on 425 degrees. Cut into wedges or squares and serve warm.

Apple, Goat Cheese and Bacon: You love drinking apple cider in the fall, and who doesn’t love bacon? This pizza is always a hit. First, cut your apples into wedges and cook them on medium heat with olive oil, brown sugar and a pinch of cinnamon for 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low and cook for 6 more minutes letting the sugar caramelize. Then cook ½ pound of bacon and cut into bite size pieces. Sprinkle mozzarella and Parmesan all over the pizza dough and top with the bacon and caramelized apples. Add goat cheese on top and bake until crust is golden brown.
