For the arugula pistachio pesto:

  • 4 cups arugula loosely packed
  • 2 tablespoons toasted pistachios I used pre-toasted, unshelled
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic
  • salt to taste
  • 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

For the flatbread pizzas:

  • 4 naan flatbreads
  • 1-2 tablespoons arugula pistachio pesto
  • 1 cup grated fontina cheese
  • 4 slices prosciutto torn into pieces
  • 1 medium nectarine seeded and sliced
  • 1 cup loosely packed arugula


Prepare the pesto:

  • Place the arugula, pistachios, lemon juice, garlic, and salt to taste in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until roughly chopped and combined. With the machine running, add the olive oil through the feed tube and process until the pesto reaches the desired consistency. Taste and add more salt if necessary and process until combined. Set aside.

Prepare the flatbread pizzas:

  • Preheat the grill to medium. Spread 1-2 tablespoons of the pesto sauce over the flatbread, then top with the cheese, prosciutto, and nectarine. Grill for 3-5 minutes or until the crust of the flatbread is crispy and the cheese has melted. Remove from heat and top with fresh arugula. Slice, serve immediately, and enjoy!


  • Pesto sauce can be made ahead and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  • I prefer my pesto with less oil. If you prefer a thinner pesto, add 1-2 more tablespoons of oil.
  • To toast your own pistachios, place on a rimmed baking sheet in a 350 degree oven for 8-10 minutes or until fragrant.
