Goat Cheese Pistachio Pizza
Recipe type: Dinner
Serves: 2 pizzas
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • ½ red onion, cut into very thin half-moon slices
  • One 16-ounce pizza dough, brought to room temperature
  • ½ cup reduced-fat shredded Cheddar cheese
  • ⅓ cup shelled roasted, lightly salted pistachios, roughly chopped
  • A few sprigs fresh thyme, leaves removed, optional
  • 4 ounces goat cheese, broken up into small pieces
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large nonstick skillet or Dutch oven over medium-low heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring frequently, until it caramelizes and is lightly browned, about 20 minutes. Stir frequently.
  2. Lightly oil or spray two small baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray. Divide the dough in half and place on each of the baking sheets. Top each dough ball with ½ teaspoon oil. Use your fingers and the heel of your hands to gently stretch and flatten each dough ball until it covers most of the baking sheet, measuring about 12 x 7 inches. The dough should be thin and the shape can be oval, round, or just plain ol’ rustic.
  3. Spread ¼ cup Cheddar cheese evenly over each of the pizzas. Top evenly with the red onion, pistachios, thyme as desired, and goat cheese, and then drizzle evenly with the honey. Place the baking sheets in the oven and bake until the bottoms are golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly, 12 to 15 minutes. (Depending on the size of your baking sheets, you may need to cook the pizzas one at a time.) Slice and serve.
