Arugula, Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese Pizza

Total Time:
35 min
5 min
30 min

2 main course; 4 appetizer

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 3 cups arugula, washed, dried and coarsely chopped
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 whole-wheat tortillas, 6-inches in diameter
  • 2 ounces reduced-fat goat cheese

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Put the oil and onions in a medium skillet and cook over very low heat, stirring occasionally, until onions are soft and caramelized, about 15 minutes. Turn the heat up to medium and add the arugula. Cook until the arugula is wilted, about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper.

Place the tortillas on a baking sheet and top each with some of the arugula/onion mixture. Crumble some goat cheese on top of each, and bake for 10 minutes. Allow to cool for a few minutes and cut each pizza into 4 triangles.

Great. I substituted regular minced garlic for flakes. Cooked some onion until carmelized and added and added some parmesan. Awesome item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a great recipe - one I'll definitely make again! Like others, I customized quite a bit to avoid the dryness reported in some reviews: - Instead of arugula, I used spinach to add weight to the dish (we ate it for dinner) - Instead of tortilla, I used whole wheat flatbread (pre-made from the grocery store) - Before adding the topping, I brushed the flatbread with a mix of EVOO, balsamic vinegar and finely chopped garlic. I then spread a thin layer of goat cheese over this for a base (added great flavor when combined with the base mixture) - After adding the spinach & caramelized onion mixture on top, I added some more fresh spinach, goat cheese, fresh ground salt & pepper and crushed red pepper - Finally, before throwing in the oven, I sprinkled with a few drops of the remaining balsamic/EVOO/garlic mix It was superb - I'm craving more already! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a really great recipe! It gives all the flavor of pizza without the sick, bloated feeling that often comes after eating traditional pizza. The only thing that I would change is to spread a bit of pesto on top of the tortillas before adding the arugula-onion mixture. The original recipe was very good, but the pesto really added a lot of flavor. I will definitely make again when I need an appetizer or a light meal! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious! If you like, add some roasted red peppers for even more flavor. Not a huge fan of the tortilla, but the toppings were perfect. item not reviewed by moderator and published
easy, gourmet recipe. great as an app or pizza tasting option. item not reviewed by moderator and published
What a find - a tasty and light meal that is easily made! I used spinach instead of arugula and, the second time I made it, used a bit more of the topping than was called for since the tortilla crust was a bit crunchy the first time. I love the flavor combination of the spinach and the goat cheese. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious! What a yummy, light, meat-free meal to have! I added extra goat-cheese (of course and it was a fantastic treat. Yum... item not reviewed by moderator and published
Really yummy! I didn't find it to be dry at all. I substituted spinach for the arugula, and I also added some tomato and basil to the top of it. The goat cheese added a really nice flavor as well. I'll definitely make it again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love the basic idea of this one but of course, we all like to play around with it after reading other reviews so here's what I did. I doubled the onions, cooking them until they're starting to get brown and crispy and add some fresh thyme. Used whole wheat naan breads from Trader's, great results. Brushed them with EVOO, salt and pepper and added a little shredded gouda for the creamy pizza-y texture. Put them right on the grill but be careful with the heat. Next time may use the pizza stone (yes, on the grill, stick it in there while the grill is heating up). Stuck with the arrugula because again, Trader's always has it ready to go in bags. Next time will also maybe add some rendered pancetta. Delish! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made this recipe many times and every time I make it, its a hit! Since I have a pizza stone, I used pizza dough that I bought from my local pizza store and it came out great! The only thing I would say is it may look like a lot of onions at first but once they caramelize they shrink and they are not overpowering at all. item not reviewed by moderator and published
