Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Mince garlic cloves. Chop prosciutto into thin strips. Chop marinated artichoke hearts into small pieces. Set aside.
  3. Add basil pesto evenly and generously onto both pizza crusts with a basting brush.
  4. Add mozzarella cheese first, then chopped marinated artichoke hearts, strips of prosciutto, and clumps of ricotta cheese equally onto both pizza crusts. Top both pizzas with Parmesan cheese. Set aside a small handful of the prosciutto to top both pizzas once cooked.
  5. Once oven is preheated, place pizzas directly onto the racks for a crisp, lightly golden finish. Cook until cheese is melted and bubbly or between 15-20 minutes.
  6. While pizzas are cooking, chop cherry tomatoes into halves and set aside. Gather your arugula.
  7. Remove pizzas from the oven once done. Top with crushed red pepper flakes and ground pepper. Then, finish with fresh arugula, halved cherry tomatoes, and remaining prosciutto on top! Cut, serve, and enjoy!
