Pizza Toppings Real Italians Swear By

The Only Raw Vegetable You Can Put on a Pizza
You don't generally find uncooked veggies on Italian pizzas—but the exception is salad greens. Arugula, in particular, has taken off; Gemignani says it's everywhere now in Italy. Its peppery flavor adds spice to a tomato-and-cheese pie, and it goes especially well with prosciutto. Lay thin slices of the ham on top of a tomato-and-cheese pizza after it comes out of the oven and then scatter some arugula over that (there's no need to bake either the meat or the greens).
