1 pound prepared whole-wheat pizza dough
2 cups chopped broccoli florets
1/2 cup onions, cut into strips
1/4 cup water
5 ounces arugula, chopped, any tough stems removed (about 6 cups)
2 cloves of garlic
Pinch of salt, if desired
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/2 cup no-salt-added tomato sauce
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon oregano
1 medium tomato, thinly sliced
1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


Position oven rack in the lowest position and then preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

Roll out dough on a lightly-floured surface to about the size of the baking sheet. Transfer to the baking sheet. Bake until puffed and lightly crisped on the bottom, 8 to 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook broccoli, onions and water in a large skillet over medium heat, covered, until the broccoli is crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in arugula and garlic and cook, stirring, until wilted, 1 to 2 minutes more. Season with salt, if using, and pepper.

In a small bowl, mix the tomato sauce, Italian seasoning and oregano. Spread the tomato sauce mixture evenly over the crust. Top with the broccoli mixture, tomatoes and sprinkle with cheese. Bake until crispy and golden and the cheese is melted, 8 to 10 minutes.
