Of all the pizza’s I have made, I think this might be one of my favorites. This is truly a “gourmet” pizza. This Goat Cheese Pizza is decadent, rich and even pretty healthy! The toppings here are my favorite but there are a variety of ways you could change this up. Here are a few other topping ideas you could change out according to your tastes.
- pine nuts
- sliced Roma tomatoes
- roasted garlic
- feta cheese
- sun-dried tomatoes
Goat Cheese Pizza with Caramelized Onions
homemade pizza dough
1 onion, sliced (red or yellow)
4 cups fresh spinach
2 large garlic cloves, minced
1/3 cup roasted red peppers, large diced
3 ounces goat cheese
3-4 tablespoons olive oil
Roll out a thin pizza dough and precook directly on oven rack for five minutes.
While pizza is cooking, saute onions until caramelized. Remove and set aside. In the same pan, heat 1 tablespoon of oil and add garlic and spinach. Cook just until spinach starts to wilt. Set aside to cool.
Remove pizza from oven and brush entire top of crust with a generous topping of olive oil. Top evenly with spinach, caramelized onions, roasted red peppers and goat cheese.
