Hi, friendsss! Where did the last 7 days go?! It’s been a busy one but I’ve drinken 1 cup of coffee and 4 cups of tea today (yerba mate, the good stuff) and am feeling back on track! Here is a simple and tasty pizza dish that you can whip up mid-week or on a weekend afternoon!

Remember my pizza phase? Well, that miiiight be happening again. It’s a blessing and a curse. But I’m just going to embrace it (while using whole wheat crusts to make me feel healthier, of course).

This pizza actually IS healthy! With the whole wheat crust, onions, and mushrooms…you’re good to go! Plus, there’s no sauce, so that makes it a little healthier too! Add a salad on the side and you’ll have yourself a very pleasant dinner or lunch, I promise!

Caramelizing onions can take a while, but I assure you, they’re well worth the wait. Plus, your kitchen smells so wonderful from the sweet flavors that slowly release from the sliced onions. Man, onions are so versatile. You can eat them raw, sautee them, caramelize them, bread them, roast them, etc. It’s just amazing. Well done, onions, well done.

And let’s not forget about the creaminess from the goat cheese too! It really ties the entire pizza together. I’m such a sucker for cheese. Yummm…cheese! Do it.

As you may already know, I cheat when it comes to making pizza dough. I just buy it from Trader Joe’s for under 2 bucks (shhhh, don’t tell!). Homemade pizza dough is super easy to make too but I’m just impatient when it comes to waiting for it to rise. Feel free to sub your own pizza dough when making this pizza!

Happy Tuesday!

Carmelized Onion, Mushroom, and Goat Cheese Pizza Recipe

  • 1 package of whole wheat pizza dough
  • 1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup crimini mushrooms, chopped
  • handful of goat cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
1. Prepare the dough as directed on package (I had to leave mine at room temperature for 20 minutes). Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2. In a pan or cast iron skillet, melt the butter over low heat and then add the onions. Let the onions slowly cook under low heat for about 10-20 minutes until the juices start to release and they caramelize. Make sure you stir the onions well during this process.
3. Add the mushrooms to the onions and continue to cook until the mushroom soften in the mixture (about another 5 minutes).
4. On a pizza pan or baking sheet lined with parchment paper, roll out the pizza dough until it is about 1 inch thick.
5. Brush the olive oil onto the surface evenly, and then add the caramelized onions and mushrooms. Top with goat cheese and cook pizza for about 12-15 minutes or until the bottom of the pizza crust is crispy and starting to get golden brown.


Let cool for 5 minutes, cut, and enjoy!
