Yields 2 pizzas


  • 2/3 cup California walnuts
  • 1 package CAULIPOWER® crusts (2 crusts)
  • 5 ounces (about 1½ cups) shredded dry mozzarella
  • 3 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
  • 2 ounces (about 2.5 cups) arugula
  • 2 cups quartered California strawberries
  • ½ tablespoon balsamic vinaigrette


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Once heated, lightly toast the walnuts on a baking sheet for 5-8 minutes, until they are lightly golden and fragrant. Coarsely chop or break the walnuts into small pieces.
  2. Divide the mozzarella over the top of the two CAULIPOWER® crusts, leaving a ½ inch crust around the outside.
  3. Crumble the goat cheese over the top pizzas and sprinkle 1/3 cup of the toasted walnuts over the top, reserving the other half for the salad.
  4. Place your pizzas in the oven on either baking sheets or a pizza stone on the bottom rack and bake for 13-15 minutes, until the cheese is melted and crust is crispy & golden brown. Remove pizza from oven.
  5. While the pizza bakes, toss the arugula, strawberries, and remaining walnuts, with balsamic vinaigrette in a large bowl.
  6. Divide the arugula.
