For Dough

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 packet instant yeast
  • 1 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 3/4 cup warm water

For Pizza Topping

For Hot Honey

  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 jalapeño, sliced with seeds


Make dough: Combine 1 cup flour, yeast, sugar, salt, and garlic powder in a large bowl. Add olive oil and water and mix well with a wooden spoon. Gradually add another cup of flour, stirring until the dough forms a cohesive ball. You may need to use your hands to thoroughly combine ingredients. Drizzle a separate bowl with olive oil and use a pastry brush to spread up the sides of the bowl. Lightly dust your hands with flour and roll dough into a round ball. Transfer to bowl with olive oil and gently roll along the inside of the bowl until it is coated with oil. Cover tightly with plastic wrap or clean dish towel and let rise until it doubles in size (about 30 minutes).

Roll and pre-bake dough: Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. Using a rolling pin, work dough into a 12″ circle. Transfer dough to a pizza pan or large cookie sheet. lightly drizzle olive oil on the top of the pizza and use a pastry brush to spread it over the entire surface. Bake for 5-10 minutes or until dough has puffed up. Remove from oven.

Top and Bake Pizza: Flip pizza over. Sprinkle with herbs and spread crushed tomatoes over surface, avoiding the edges of the crust. Layer with parmesan, artichoke hearts, and mozzarella. Return to oven and cook until cheese melts and bubbles.

Make hot honey: While pizza is cooking, heat honey and jalapeños over medium heat until it reaches a simmer. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.

Serve pizza: Remove pizza from oven and transfer to a large cutting board. Sprinkle with arugula microgreens, salt, and crushed red pepper. Strain honey and drizzle over pizza. Cut into slices and enjoy!
