1. Place a pizza stone in over then heat to 425°F. (You can also use a baking sheet, but a stone will yield better results.)
2. Prepare crust: In a small saucepan on medium-low, add cheese and butter and heat, stirring, until cheese is entirely melted. Stir well and remove from heat. Transfer to a bowl, add egg and combine well using a hand mixer. Add almond flour and salt and combine well with mixer. Using your hands, knead dough for about 3 minutes.
3. Place dough on a greased piece of parchment paper and pat it out with your hands to form a 10-inch circle. Slide sheet of parchment with dough circle onto an unrimmed baking sheet (or the back of a rimmed sheet). Set aside.
4. Prepare topping: Heat a cast-iron skillet on medium. Add beef, season with salt, and cook, stirring to break up the clumps, until meat is browned and crumbly, about 5 minutes. Set aside.
5. Spread pizza sauce over crust. Sprinkle cheese over sauce and top with beef, mushrooms, olives, bell peppers, prosciutto (if using) and onion. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning (if using).
6. Transfer pizza to hot pizza stone in oven by sliding parchment and pizza off the baking sheet onto the stone. Bake until cheese is melted, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with arugula (if using).
