Savory Goat Cheese Pizza with Autumn Apple
Sometimes, comfort looks, and tastes, like pizza...maybe with goat cheese, caramelized veggies and Autumn Apple. You might make the crust yourself, or you might swing by the store and pick something up that's ready to go. Either way, this pizza will be delicious and conveniently easy. Eat it for a meal, or as a game day appetizer. The fresh arugula gives it some added texture, and it's a good way to get some extra veggies in for the day.
I wish you could smell the crust baking! So good!
- ½ white onion, thinly sliced
- 1 tbsp butter
- Store bought or homemade pizza dough
- Olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic, crushed or minced
- 5 oz goat cheese log
- ½ cup roasted red pepper, thinly sliced
- 4 cups baby arugula
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- ½ lemon, juiced
- 1 tbsp Mt. Hope Farms Autumn Apple Fruit Spread
- Pinch of salt
- Pinch of pepper
- Optional - prosciutto
- Preheat the oven to 475 degrees fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and add the butter. Once the butter is melted, add the sliced onion. Caramelize for 10-15 minutes. Remove from the heat.
- Place the pizza dough on the lined baking sheet and roll it out in any shape you want until it’s about ¼-½” thick.
- Drizzle a generous amount of olive oil over the dough and add the crushed garlic. Spread over the dough evenly.
- Crumble the 5oz of goat cheese all over the crust evenly.
- Spread the roasted red pepper and caramelized onions evenly over the crust.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes until the crust is golden and cooked through. Be sure to check at the 15 minute mark.
- While the pizza cooks, whisk together the olive oil, ½ lemon, apple fruit spread, and a pinch of salt and pepper in a large bowl.
- Toss the arugula with the dressing and allow to sit while the pizza cooks.
- Once the pizza is done, let cool for about 5 minutes before serving. Serve with the arugula salad on top and enjoy!
