Servings: 1 personal-sized pizza
Author: Gretchen


  • 1 pizza dough ball (either basic pizza dough or 2-hour pizza dough is fine)
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • β…› cup apricot jam
  • 3 ounces mozzarella, cut into cubes
  • 2 ounces gorgonzola
  • small handful of walnut pieces
  • arugula


Preheat the oven:

  • Preheat the oven to 550 degrees Fahrenheit (or as high as it will go) with your pizza stone inside.

Assemble the pizza:

  • Stretch the pizza dough to an approximately 12” circle, then brush with a thin layer of olive oil. (If you already have garlic-infused olive oil, feel free to use that instead!)
  • Put your 1/8 cup of apricot jam on the pizza in small dollops. Sprinkle the mozzarella cubes evenly over the dough, then add crumbles of gorgonzola. Sprinkle the walnut pieces evenly on top.
  • Bake the pizza until the crust is golden-brown and the cheese is bubbly, rotating once halfway through the cooking time. When it’s done, sprinkle with as much arugula as you prefer.
  • While the pizza bakes, stretch the next dough and assemble the next pizza. Repeat until all four pizzas are done.

Bake the pizza:

  • Transfer the pizza onto the preheated pizza stone. Cook at 550+ degrees Fahrenheit until the crust is golden-brown and the cheese is melted.
  • Sprinkle with arugula to finish, and enjoy!
