Honey Goat Cheese Pizza

Menlo Park Week was oodles of fun for me, but I’m a little happy it’s over so I can finally share this honey goat cheese pizza with you! It’s divine. I can’t take credit for the idea of this pizza…that goes to my dear friend Faye. Yet another reason I’m grateful Faye is in my life.

Here’s why I love this pizza. The sweetness of the goat cheese and the caramelized onions balances perfectly with the saltiness of the parmesan cheese and the salt that you sprinkle on the pizza. And the texture of the mozzarella cheese balances out the goat cheese oh so nicely. It’s perfection on a pizza crust.

Ingredients
  • Honey goat cheese from Trader Joe’s (If you don’t have a TJ’s, then I would recommend using regular goat cheese and drizzling some honey over the pizza before baking – you gotta get that sweetness in there. You could even mix some honey in with the goat cheese before putting dabs on the pizza.)
  • Caramelized onions
  • Fresh mozzarella cheese (or shredded if that’s what you have in the fridge, but the fresh is just so yummy)
  • Fresh parmesan cheese (sorry, this one has to be fresh, folks)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt & pepper
  • Pizza crust (Obviously! Click here for the recipe I use.)
Instructions
  1. Make your crust. When it’s ready to be topped, drizzle some olive oil on the crust and spread around with your fingers. Sprinkle salt all over the crust, and a bit of pepper. Top with the caramelized onions, mozzarella cheese and fresh parmesan cheese. Like I mentioned in the ingredients list, if you can’t get your hands on the Trader Joe’s honey goat cheese – I would just drizzle a bit of honey over the pizza before topping with the cheeses and onions. You could also mix your plain goat cheese with honey before putting dabs of the cheese on the pizza.
  2. Bake on a pizza stone at the highest heat your oven can put out until cheese is bubbly and the crust is browned (or bake your pizza how you normally bake it).

    I’ve been thinking the honey goat cheese would make a really yummy dessert pizza with pears, brown sugar, and a dash of cinnamon. I also used it on a green salad this weekend with beets and almonds. Yum!

    I think that this is the best looking and sounding thing I have ever read about. Oh man. I could really use some of this pizza right now. I loooove goat cheese. I’d probably add some kalamata olives or something too. :)

    This looks so yummy – do you ever have trouble getting your kids to eat things like this?

    good question, bethaney! my kids are so hot and cold on this stuff….sometimes they gobble it up, sometimes they don’t! the night I made the pizza pictured, they only had some nibbles…my friend Faye’s kids gobble the stuff up. you just never know!

    whenever I make pizza I always make more than one kind. this night I had never made the goat cheese myself (even though I had eaten it)….so I did a tomato sauce based pizza as well, knowing the girls may or may not go for the goat cheese. :)

    I’ve seen so many recipes lately for pizzas! So far, I think yours must be the best! The other one I really like is Mexican Pizza. What do you think? Thanks again for sharing this delicious pizza recipe!

  15. This might be the most amazing pizza ever. I added some chicken and chopped fresh spinach, and we devoured the whole thing. Thx for posting such a great recipe!

    OMG!!! we decided to do pizza for thanksgiving this year and have a contest to see who could make the best one. i searched for over a week for a recipe and came across this one. sounded a little odd, but the reviews made me try it. WOW!!! it melted in your mouth. all the flavors from the onions and fresh cheeses was amazing. i even found the honey goat cheese and i am hooked on it. thank you so much for sharing this recipe and helping me win my contest ;)

    This recipe is really nice and easy to be prepared. I have tried many recipes before, by far this one has the most straight forward instruction. In order to make the pizza dough more flavourful, I let it ferment in room temperature 5-6 hours. After long fermentation period, the dough will become more stretchy and easy to be shaped according to what you want.

  19. i made this for dinner last night with Trader Joe’s whole wheat pizza dough and it was amazing. those caramelized onions really hit the spot!

    MMMM
    Made this yesterday with a few modifications! I used whole wheat dough and I didn’t have the honey goat cheese- but I am intrigued by it and now must find it! I also didn’t put any mozzarella on it.

    It was delicious!! I bet you could add some thin sliced apple to it or chicken sausage….definitely delicious!! Really, I bet you could do appetizer sized pizzas with these toppings and it would be fabulous!

    Thanks for the recipe!

    Accidentally bought the honey goat cheese instead of regular and googled for a recipe. I just made this tonight and am feeling like a total glutton for eating more than half of it on my own. So delicious! Thanks for putting up this recipe :)

  22. This pizza was heavenly; my family and I really enjoyed it. I featured it in my most recent weekly meal plan on my blog. Thank you!
