Quick Mama Lunch: Pear Arugula Lunch Pizza

Recently I’ve found myself lacking the energy that most 24 year olds should have.

I started out strong staying up late every night facebookin’ it while watching trash TV…But now, 5 o’clock rolls around and all I want is a hot bath, a foot rub with some bengay, and an oversized fluffy robe  with mismatched fuzzy socks.

Unfortunately I feel the same way whether it’s 5 o’clock at night or 10 in the morning.

When meal time rolls around I use up what energy I have to make the food for others, then lay myself flat on the floor with my mouth wide open hoping Boo drops some crumbs in my directions.


Ok…In all honesty when it comes to the food I eat for lunch it’s 78% leftovers from last nights dinner. But when leftovers aren’t available, I look for something that’s fast and has all the right components to keep me energized, full, and focused.

I sound like a breakfast cereal commercial.

Pear Arugula Lunch ‘Pizza’

*Although this isn’t technically a pizza, it resembles one in a way :)*


1 whole wheat tortilla, flat bread, naan, etc.

Melted Coconut Oil

S/P plus seasonings of choice

handful of arugula

1 pear

1/4 c. walnuts

1/4 c. crumbled goat cheese

drizzle of balsamic oil


1. Take your tortilla and brush it with melted coconut oil. Then sprinkle it with salt and pepper and desired spices. (I used a lot of dried herbs, paprika, and garlic) Put on a baking sheet and turn oven to low broil. Broil for a couple minutes until tortilla becomes golden and crispy.

2. Top with arugula, sliced pears, crumbled goat cheese, walnuts, and then drizzle with balsamic oil.

Super fast and incredibly yummy!

Plus as a bonus you don’t have to eat crumbs that were dropped to the floor!

Win Win!
