HEALTHY PIZZA

Ingredients:

2 gluten-free thin pizza bases

Oil

2 cups diced yellow onion

Natural salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 potatoes, washed, peeled and sliced

1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary

2 cups (44g) loosely packed arugula

Sauce:

½ cup (120ml) olive oil

¼ cup (60ml) balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary

1 teaspoon minced garlic (about 1 clove)

¼ teaspoon of natural salt

Pinch of freshly ground black pepper

Preparation method:

Place the bases in the oven, according to the instructions on the packaging. Remove them from the oven and place on trays lightly greased with olive oil. Increase the oven temperature to 220 degrees.

Heat two tablespoons of olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and a pinch of salt and pepper and sauté for 10 to 15 minutes, until the onion caramelizes. Reserve.

Place the potatoes in a bowl and, using your hands, mix the slices with half a teaspoon of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Reserve.

To make the sauce, place all the ingredients in a blender and blend at maximum speed for 30 to 60 seconds, until the oil and vinegar emulsify.

To assemble the pizzas, spread a tablespoon and a half of sauce over each base. Place the onions on top and then the potatoes. Sprinkle half a teaspoon of rosemary over the potatoes on each pizza.

Place the pizzas in the oven until the pizzas are well cooked and golden, for around 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let the pizzas cool slightly. Just before serving, pour 1 or two tablespoons (or more) of the sauce over each pizza. Toss the arugula with half a teaspoon of olive oil and spread a cup of the leaves on each pizza to cover the potatoes.

Place the remaining sauce on the table.
