Ground Pork and Arugula Pizza

Ground Pork and Arugula Pizza Recipe


  • 1 Full Circle Bakery fresh sour pizza dough
  • ¼ cup Sonoma Gourmet Heirloom Tomato Marinara Pizza Sauce
  • 4 oz mozzarella cheese, torn into 1" pieces or shredded
  • 1/2 pound Rusty Hinges Ranch pasture-raised ground pork
  • 1 cup fresh arugula
  • juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • olive oil
  • pinch of salt & pepper


  1. Allow your dough to proof at room temperature for up to 30 minutes. While the dough rests, prep your ingredients.
  2. Preheat oven to 500˚F. Roll the pizza dough out into a shape that is roughly 12”.
  3. Once oven is preheated, transfer to a sheet tray and par-bake in oven for 5 minutes. This helps the crust hold up all of your toppings when it’s time to cook.
  4. Remove par-baked dough from oven and spread pizza sauce on the dough, leaving 1" around the sides for the crust.
  5. Top with mozzarella cheese and ground pork.
  6. Bake the pizza for 10-12 minutes or until the cheese is lightly browned and crust is golden. Rotate the pizza halfway into baking to cook evenly.
  7. While your pizza is cooking, add arugula 1/2 Tbsp of olive oil, a squeeze of lemon and a pinch of salt and pepper to a mixing bowl.
  8. Using clean hands, toss and gently massage the arugula. The oil and salt will soften the arugula.
  9. Remove pizza from oven and let rest for 2-3 minutes.
  10. Top with arugula salad and enjoy!
