pizza with white beans, prosciutto & rosemary
prep time: 30 minutes | start to finish: 45 minutes | ease of 
white beans seasoned with fresh rosemary and prosciutto make this rustic 
pizza an interesting departure from your standard take-out fare. scattering 
it with arugula after baking provides a contrasting texture and a fresh, 
appealing finish. (photo: page 212.)

in a medium bowl; toss to coat. 
on a lightly floured surface, roll the dough into a 13-inch circle. 
transfer to the prepared pan. turn edges under to make a slight rim. brush 
the rim with the remaining 1 teaspoon oil.

cup parmesan. spread the bean mixture on top. sprinkle with prosciutto and 
onion. top with the remaining 1/4 cup parmesan. grind pepper over the top.

arugula over the pizza and serve immediately.
