4 ounces shredded Italian Fontina cheese

3 cups baby arugula

2 teaspoons lemon juice

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a 14-inch-round perforated metal pizza pan with nonstick cooking spray. Stretch and press dough to edges of pan.

2. Arrange potato slices in overlapping rows over dough, leaving 1 inch to edges. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and brush with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Scatter cheese over potatoes. Bake until potatoes are golden and cheese is bubbling and browned, 20 to 25 minutes.

3. While pizza is baking, toss arugula with remaining tablespoon oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. As soon as pizza comes out of the oven, top with arugula. Serve immediately.
