Goat Cheese Pizza Recipes
Goat cheese pizza is a wonderful flavor alternative for pizza lovers. Whether spread over the crust as the first layer, or melted over the toppings, goat cheese adds a new dimension of taste and texture to this universally loved dish.
With all the variations in meat, fruit, vegetable, sauce and cheese toppings, there is a pizza to suit every taste. From pineapple to spinach alfredo to chicken fajita to pepperoni, pizza is one of the most versatile foods available when it comes to taste.
The addition of goat cheese to pizza adds yet another variation on taste. Melted goat cheese is warm, creamy and tangy, and light in texture, compared to the thick, heavy taste of the melted hard cheeses that often smother out the taste of the other toppings.
The recipes here are designed to give you a sampling of the ways that goat cheese can be used to enhance the flavors of pizza. Try combining it with your favorite pizza toppings. You may like it better than more traditional pizza cheeses!
Goat Cheese Pizza: Eggplant Parmesan Style
When I set out to create a new goat cheese pizza recipe, I wasn't thinking about pizza at all. Instead, I kept thinking about how well the smooth, tangy taste of warm goat cheese would go with the flavors of one of my favorite dishes, eggplant parmesan.
I was determined to merge the two entrees into one taste, and after several days of contemplating variations of the new recipe, I settled on the one below. It's quick and easy, colorful and delicious.
The vegetables, marinara sauce and goat cheese blend wonderfully together, and the flatbread crust gives a light, crispy contrast to the cheese and vegetable mix. A sprinkling of parmesan on top adds flavor without the heavy calorie burden of a traditional thick mozzarella covering.
Veggie pizzas have always been my favorite, and this one is no exception. If you love the taste of fresh vegetables and pizza, this is a great recipe to add to your list.
- 2-10" flatbread pizza crusts
- 6 oz. chevre goat cheese
- 1 cup finely diced eggplant
- 1/2 cup chopped red onion
- 1/2 cup diced yellow bell pepper
- 1 cup marinara sauce
- 2 Tbsp. olive oil
- 1 Tbsp. Italian seasoning
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 2 Tbsp. parmesan
Preheat oven to 425° F.
Divide the goat cheese in half, and spread one section over each of the pizza crusts.
Place the olive oil in a skillet, and add the eggplant, onion and bell pepper. Heat over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until the vegetables are tender.
Remove from heat, and add the salt, Italian seasoning and marinara sauce. Mix well.
Spread half the vegetable/sauce mixture over each pizza, and sprinkle a tablespoon of parmesan over the tops of each.
Cook directly on the middle oven rack for 5-10 minutes until the crust is crispy. Cut into sections and enjoy!
Tips: Served in small pieces, this flatbread goat cheese pizza makes a great appetizer.
For a heartier meal, use a traditional thick pizza crust, instead of flatbread.
