One of my new favorites is pizza topped with fresh arugula. My favorite is plain cheese pizza with arugula on top, but this is a VERY close second. A wonderful combination! NOTE: Bacon and Onions can be prepared ahead of time.
- 4 slices bacon, chopped
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 12 cups onions, thinly sliced
- 2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, chopped & divided
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 (12 inch) Boboli pizza crusts
- 1⁄2 cup gorgonzola, crumbled
- 2 tablespoons walnuts, coarsely chopped
- 1 cup arugula, trimmed
