Preheat oven to 500 F. Roll out crusts on parchment paper.
Spread a thin layer of tomato sauce over each crust, leaving one
inch clear around the edge of the crust. Arrange one layer
mozzarella over the sauce. Top with a layer of coppa. Scatter
tomatoes and arugula over the coppa. Sprinkle with pecorino.
Brush the exposed crust with olive oil.
Slide the parchment and pizzas onto a baking stone on lowest rack
in oven. Bake until crust is golden brown and cheese is bubbly,
about 15 minutes. Serve immediately as is or topped with
additional fresh arugula and a drizzle of olive oil.

izza Dough Recipe
Adapted from a recipe by Alice Waters. Makes 2 – 10 inch or 4 mini
2 teaspoons dry yeast
1/2 cup lukewarm water
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup semolina flour
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cups cold water
1/4 cup olive oil
Stir yeast and lukewarm water together in a bowl. Add 1/4 cup all-
purpose flour and semolina. Mix well. Let sit until bubbly, about
30 minutes. Combine remaining flour and salt in another bowl.
Add to yeast with cold water and olive oil. Mix well to form a
dough. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured board and knead
with hands until dough is smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes.
Or use a mixer with a dough hook, and knead about 5 minutes.
Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl and turn to coat all sides with
oil. Cover bowl loosely with plastic wrap. Let rise in a warm place
until doubled in size, 1 to 2 hours. Punch dough down, and let rise
another 45 minutes. Divide dough into 2 equal disks (or 4 if you
would like small pizzas.) Let rest 30 minutes before shaping.
Lightly flour a work surface. Using your fingers or heels of your
hands, stretch the disks out to 10 inch shapes.
