For the pizza dough

11/4 cups warm water
2 tsp. active dry yeast
1 Tbs. honey
15 oz. (31/4 cups) all-purpose flour
11/4 oz. (1/4 cup) whole-wheat flour
1 Tbs. salt
2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil

For the pizza toppings

1 clove garlic, minced fine
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 lb. mozzarella (preferably
fresh), cut into large cubes
8 thin slices prosciutto
(about 4 oz.)

For the salad

6 oz. arugula (about 7 cups,
loosely packed), washed and
tough stems removed
6 very thin slices red onion
6 sun-dried tomatoes, diced
(if not packed in oil, rehydrate
2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
2 tsp. balsamic vinegar

When the pizza comes out of the oven, it’s topped with a salad of arugula,
sun-dried tomatoes, red onion, balsamic vinegar, and extra-virgin olive oil.
This salad is also great on its own.

a stand mixer. Allow to sit until foamy, about 5 minutes. Add the remaining
ingredients and stir until incorporated. Knead by hand on a floured surface for
10 minutes, or in a mixer for 5 minutes. Coverthe bowl and letthe dough rise
until doubled, about11/2hours.
