OMG, Arugula Patch

Can we talk about pizza? It's probably my most favorite food. No, wait, yes, it IS my most favorite food. And I regularly rotate through phases of My. Favorite. Pizza. Ever. My current fave is the Arugula Patch from Zaw Artisan Bake at Home Pizza.

The people who work at the Queen Anne Zaw are SO NICE and they make an amazing pizza that comes with a handwritten note and instructions about how to bake it. (Thanks for the great pizza Austin!)

The Arugula Patch comes covered in Parmesan, cherry tomatoes, basil, a very light tomato sauce, and delicate, thinly-sliced Prosciutto. Look how beautiful! Mmmmm. But wait! It gets better.

After the pizza has been in a 425 degree oven for 14—OMG, I'm so hungry and can't wait to eat—minutes, you garnish with a handful of crisp, green arugula and freshly squeezed lemon juice. I mean it is called the Arugula Patch, after all.

I enjoyed mine with a Granville Island English Bay Pale Ale to toast the Canucks in their loss of the Stanley Cup and watch the subsequent rioting in the streets of Vancouver on tv. Poor Vancouver.

But, OMG, the Arugula Patch is so good.

Now you tell me, what is your current favorite pizza?
