Flatbread with Arugula, Tomato and Prosciutto

I have a favorite pizza restaurant in Nashville.

Their crust is so airy and never soggy. They have the beer I like and the atmosphere seems really authentic.

Seems like a great set of problems to have, right? Wrong.

Usually if I have a favorite dish at a restaurant I love, I have a “no trying to make this at home” rule.

I made the mistake of trying to copy our favorite pie and I succeeded. Now we never go there anymore because we can just have it at home-with more beer.

To make matters worse, it couldn’t be easier and it looks fancy schmancy.

To make grating fresh mozzarella a cinch, pop the whole ball into the freezer for 10 minutes before grating.

After par-baking the crust, bake with cheese.
