Do you ever have those nights when you just want an easy, delicious dish that’s quick to make? I definitely do; sadly more than I’d like to admit lately. But, on a good note, my design business is going so well! (Thanks to some amazing clients and friends!!) And, I had this post in the queue since last year.

And for a few more reasons… BECAUSE:

  • It’s good (duh) and easy
  • Only requires a few ingredients
  • You deserve a night off of cooking up a storm after the holidays
  • My lavender and lemon cranberry sauce recipe was a hit (keeping up the momentum!)

So here we go………

My go-to dinner after a looong day is dressing up a frozen pizza. We probably have been eating too much of this but with all the holiday craziness I will admit this has been a go-to dinner. The steps are as easy as 1-2-3!

Spicing up a frozen pizza

ONE

Cook your favorite frozen pizza (or homemade!) in the oven as usual. I always like to kick mine up a notch by adding red pepper flakes too.

Dress up a pizza with arugula, grapeseed oil and a little balsamic drizzle

TWO

Mix up arugula and Grapeseed Oil in a bowl and sprinkle on top of the pizza. Olive oil works too!

Balsamic Glaze and Grapeseed Oil are key to making any frozen pizza droolworthy

THREE

Drizzle with balsamic. I keep it really simple and use a balsamic glaze from our local grocery store, The Fresh Market, but here is a great recipe for a homemade balsamic reduction which is just as delicious :).

Shopping List for Ingredients: 

  • Pizza of your choice (bonus if you can make this from scratch!)
  • Arugula
  • Grapeseed Oil
  • Red Pepper Flakes (optional)
  • Balsamic Glaze to drizzle on top (either home made reduction or store bought)

    Yum! We do a frozen pizza night whenever we get all cooked out. We are big arugula fans, so we will give this a try.!

        John made this for me on our last pizza night. It was delicious! Maybe one day I will divulge the secret sweet potato recipe ;).
