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.

Ingredients

  • 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

Steps

  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.
