  • 1 tablespoon cornmeal
  • 4 oz gorgonzola cheese cut in pieces
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups lightly packed arugula leaves


Shape dough into ball by pulling side down and folding into bottom at centre; cover with tea towel and let rest for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, in skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook onion, salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 7 minutes. Let cool slightly.

On lightly floured surface, press and pull dough or roll out with rolling pin into 14-inch (35 cm) round to fit pizza pan, or into 16- x 12-inch (40 x 30 cm) rectangle to fit baking sheet.

Sprinkle cornmeal evenly over pan; place dough on pan. Spread with onion mixture. Top with Gorgonzola cheese; sprinkle with Parmesan.

Bake on bottom rack of 425?F (220?C) oven until bottom is golden, 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer to cutting board and top with arugula.
