In a small saucepan, combine lemon slices and water. Bring to a boil, cook 3 minutes and then drain well. In a skillet, sauté garlic in 2 teaspoons olive oil until soft. Add asparagus pieces and cook, stirring occasionally until tender crisp – about 2 minutes. Heat oven to 450 degrees F. Place pizza crust on a lightly oiled baking sheet or pizza stone. Spread lemon slices evenly over crust and then sprinkle on mozzarella. Spread asparagus and prosciutto evenly over mozzarella. Top with brie slices. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon olive oil. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown. Toss arugula leaves with remaining olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Remove pizza from oven and top with arugula.
