Apricot Arugula Pizzettes

apricot arugula pizzetteThis week I started a new 6-week block of pharmacy rounds, and today I got to do my first hospital discharge medication consultation. It was so rewarding! I have a really short lunch break, so I have been needing to think of fast recipes for lunch every day. I should just get up early and make something in the morning, but that never happens!

This apricot arugula pizzette recipe is one of my favorite lunch recipes because the combination of flavors is incredible, and it is pretty quick to make! It is made with fresh apricots, arugula, crumbled goat cheese and carmelized onions with herbs. It is light, yet very satisfying! I just love healthy lunch recipes like this one 🙂

    It sounds like you work really hard. I hate a short lunch break – it makes you feel like you need to gulp down your lunch then you go back to work with indigestion. I’ve never had apricots on pizza but seeing your pizza has inspired me xx
