This was delicious, easy and fresh. I used a thin pre-made pizza crust, but everything else was per the recipe (i baked it at the temperature recommended for the pizza crust I used. 500 is just too hot.) The arugula was an especially nice touch. This recipe can be adapted easily. Perfect for a light evening meal and easy enough for a quick dinner. We loved it!
