Arugula Fig Goat Cheese Pizza

As much as grabbing a "grandma slice" around the corner saves time, there's nothing like making your pizza at home. You can customize the type of crust you buy or make and of course have you have control over the toppings. This pizza was inspired by a salad I recently had and turned out really well!
