  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt

Salad

  • 3 loosely packed cups arugula

  • ½ cup artichoke hearts, quartered and sliced
  • ½ cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • ¼ cup pitted kalamata olives, about 10 olives, halved and patted dry

  • 1 ounce shaved Pecorino Romano cheese (optional)

Crust

  • 2 whole grain lavash breads
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons olive oil
