Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Make the dough the day before so that it has time to really rise and develop flavor. Set up a stand mixer with a dough hook All-Purpose Flour (1.25 pound) the Water (1 1/2 cup) and Active Dry Yeast (1 packet) in its bowl.
Step 2
Let it sit for the yeast to activate for a couple of minutes, then add the Olive Oil (1/2 cup), Salt (2 pinch), and Granulated Sugar (1/4 teaspoon). Turn the mixer on low to start to stir those ingredients together.
Step 3
While it is still mixing, slowly add the flour until you have a soft dough. Turn the speed to medium and let the dough work for 3-5 more minutes until it starts to pull away from the sides of the bowl.
Step 4
Bring the dough together into a ball and drizzle it generously with olive oil to coat it. Cover the bowl and set it in the refrigerator to work its magic overnight.
Step 5
The next day, set a rack on the lowest rung of the oven you have and preheat it to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
Step 6
Then start on the Basil Pesto (2 tablespoon). Heat the Butter (3 tablespoon) in a medium saucepan over medium high heat and add the All-Purpose Flour (3 tablespoon) in with it. Whisk it together until the flour cooks off and it becomes thick and golden.
Step 7
While you keep whisking, slowly pour in the Milk (1 1/2 cup) to make the white sauce. Season it with the Ground Nutmeg (1 pinch) and Salt (1 pinch), then let it gently bubble and cook for about 8 minutes.
Step 8
Now it's time to assemble the pizza. Take out the dough and punch it down to deflate it. Get out a pizza stone (preferably) or large round baking tray and dust it with a little Polenta (to taste). Press the dough out into an even layer on it.
Step 9
Spread the pesto béchamel in an even layer on the dough, leaving a 1 inch border to have a crust to grab. Lay out Sun-Dried Tomatoes (1 can) evenly on the sauce, then season it all with the Garlic Powder (1/2 teaspoon) and Dried Parsley (1/2 teaspoon), add Shredded Mozzarella Cheese (4 ounce) and garnish with Baby Arugula (1 cup).
Step 10
Bake the pizza for 20-25 minutes on the bottom rack of the oven. The cheese should almost get brown and the crust should get crisp and golden around the edges.
Step 11
Take it out and evenly distribute the arugula on top. It will wilt right into the hot pizza. Use a sharp knife or pizza cutter to cut it into 8 equal pieces and serve it immediately! Enjoy!
