caramelized onion & goats cheese pizza

thin crust vegetarian delight
Creamy goats cheese, sweet caramelized onions, portobella mushrooms, and spring mix to top it all off. This pizza is deliciously vegetarian and satisfying.  Sonia, this was made with you in mind!

what you need:
  • pizza dough
  • 3 large yellow or vidalia onions
  • 1 portobello mushroom
  • about 1/2 cup goats cheese
  • about 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1 big handful spring mix salad
  • extra virgin olive oil 
  • salt & pepper
  • red chili flakes 
what to do:
  1. To caramelize onions: this is a long process so start here first!  Chop onions into thin slices and get about 1 tbsp oil heating in a non-stick pan on medium heat.  Saute onions until they are caramelized (browned, sticky and slightly sweet) - it will take about 15 minutes and you will need to toss / stir them occassionally.  Do not turn the heat up or you will burn them.  Add salt, pepper and red chili flakes to taste, then remove from heat.
  2. Slice mushroom and roll out pizza dough.
  3. Brush pizza dough lightly with olive oil.  Load up the pizza dough first with a generous layer of caramelized onions, then top evenly with mozzarella, crumble goats cheese all over, and mushroom slices.  Bake on a pizza stone or pan for 10-12 minutes - until edges of pizza crust are golden brown.
  4. Remove from oven and top immediately with spring mix, they will wilt slightly from the heat of the pizza.  Slice it up and enjoy!
