Goat cheese pizza is one of my favorite pizza recipes to make. I can't remember quite how I stumbled onto the recipe, but I think it's a variation I learned from my Aunt and Uncle during a visit to Bear Valley. The prep time is less than 10 minutes and you'll need another 15 minutes to bake it. Here are the ingredients to get you started.
- Goat Cheese
- Cherry or Sweet 100 Tomatoes
- Marinated Sun Dried Tomatoes
- Crushed Garlic
- Olive Oil
- Thin Boboli Crust (substitute at will)
- Oven Pizza Stone (not required)
- Pre-heat your oven to 425
Step 1: Make the sauce
In a small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of olive oil with one teaspoon of crushed garlic. Let that stand for a little bit.
Start cutting your tomatoes into halves.
Step 2: Put it all together
Spread the sauce evenly over the crust.
Add the tomatoes. In this version, I went a little heavy on the tomatoes and used the entire pint, but I usually only use about 1/2 of a pint.
Add some sun dried tomatoes.
Add 2-3 oz. of goat cheese or as you like.
Put it in the oven for about 15 minutes or until the goat cheese starts to brown a little.
Step 3: Have some wine while it cooks
White wine goes really well with goat cheese pizza!
Step 4: It's ready!
When the tips of the goat cheese are starting to brown, it's ready. If you leave it in too long, the sun dried tomatoes will also start to get burnt.
