Ingredients

1/2 cup (125 mL) Canadian Mascarpone cheese
2 tbsp (30 mL) basil pesto
1 12-inch (30 cm) prepared pizza crust
3 cups (750 mL) trimmed arugula, (torn if large)
1 cup (250 mL) drained Canadian Baby Bocconcini
1/2 cup (125 mL) grape tomatoes or 
cherry tomatoes, halved
2 tbsp (30 mL) extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp (15 mL) balsamic vinegar
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Preparation

In small bowl, combine Mascarpone cheese and pesto; spread over pizza crust. Top with arugula, bocconcini and grape tomatoes. Whisk together oil, vinegar, salt and pepper to taste; drizzle over top.

Tips

Baby bocconcini is approximately 3/4-inch (2 cm) in diameter; however, quartered bocconcini would work equally as well. For optimum flavour, make sure that the prepared basil pesto has basil listed as the first ingredient.

Substitute arugula leaves with equal amount of baby spinach or spring mix salad greens.
