Caramelized Onion, Potato and Goat Cheese Pizza

2 Jan

There is a new restaurant in our small little city that has consistently dished out some of the best food in town. Chad and I have loved everything we have tried there and one of our favorites was a Potato and Goat Cheese pizza. But because I have wanted to try something different each time we’ve gone in, I haven’t gotten it again. So I thought I would try to replicate it at home. I did just that but for some added flavor I decided to caramelize the onions. This kicked up the flavor and it was divine. I liked it better than the original!


For the crust, you can use your own favorite pizza dough recipe. I used the one found in Cook Without the Book.


Pizza dough covered in goodness!


Layer of potatoes. I used my mandolin to thinly slice them. They are very nearly paper thin. I wanted to be sure that the potatoes had time to cook and if they were to thick they may have been a bit raw in the time it took to bake the pizza.


Now with goat cheese! At this point you can sprinkle with some coarse salt and freshly ground pepper. I actually forgot to do this step, oops.


Caramelized Onion, Potato, and Goat Cheese Pizza

Pizza Crust from your own recipe, pre-made, or frozen

about 1/3 – 1/2 cup caramelized onions

Olive Oil

1 – 1 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary

1/2 russet potato, sliced thinly

about 3 oz. crumbled goat cheese

salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 400°.

On a greased baking sheet, stretch pizza dough to fit to edges of pan. If the dough pulls back, let it rest a few minutes and try again (if using fresh or thawed dough). Brush dough with about 1/2 tablespoon olive oil and spread with caramelized onions. Sprinkle onions with crushed dried rosemary. Layer thinly sliced potatoes on top of onions and crumble goat cheese over potatoes. Sprinkle salt and freshly ground pepper over pizza.

Bake pizza for approximately 20-25 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
