Chicken Grilled Flatbreads with Arugula, White Bean and Basil Pizza

When you crave pizza but want to keep it light, try this one topped with arugula, white beans, and basil.


  • 4 ounces basil, leaves picked from the stems
  • 5 tbsp. reserved blanching water
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 2 cloves garlic, grated
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • Pinch of red chili flakes
  • 1 ball of pizza dough, store-bought or homemade
  • 2 cups wild arugula
  • 1 small lemon
  • Parmesan cheese, freshly grated for garnish


  1. Begin by making the basil sauce. Bring a small sauce pot of salted water to a boil. Add in the basil leaves and blanch for 1 minute. Immediately remove the leaves and place into ice water. This will help keep them bright green and remove some of the bitterness.
  2. Reserve about 5 tbsp. of the cooking liquid.
