Goat Cheese and Veggie Pizza

Well I've found a new favorite sauce for pizza.  Goat cheese.  Yes, I've thought of this before, but I'd never used it as a sauce, just as a topping.  Until I read this lovely post by The Minimalist Baker.  Basically, you just add a little milk to the goat cheese so that it become more spreadable.  Winning idea.  This recipe is loosely based on hers, but I added more veggies because of the CSA Monster (also, I'm taking suggestions for name ideas that aren't as lame).  I did a spring onion, squash, and broccoli.  Then I topped it with arugula.  I'm not sure if you guys know this, but all of those veggies make up for the bread and goat cheese underneath, so it's healthy.

Also, my camera is broken.  Or maybe the battery is just dead.  Either way, we're back to iPhone pictures for now.  Blech.

First, pre-heat your oven to 350.  Once that is out of the way, chop your veggies.  I used one spring onion, one squash, and some broccoli.  Use whatever you like, but the onion is highly recommended


Put some olive oil in a pan and heat over medium heat.  When it's hot, add the onions along with some salt and pepper.  Cook until translucent and beginning to brown.  Then, add the other veg.

While that is cooking, put 4 ounces (that's one of the small logs) of goat cheese into a bowl.  Add some milk and season.  Don't do a lot of milk, you just want to thin it out a little bit so that it becomes spreadable.

Grease your pizza pan and spread the dough out.  I got raw dough from the grocery store (it's usually by the prepared food), so I had to pre-bake it a bit.  If you just get a ready made pizza crust, you don't have to pre-bake.  I also spread olive oil on top of the dough because that stuff is delicious.  If you're pre-baking, it should go for about 10 minutes, just until it isn't super raw looking.

Next, spread the goat cheese and pile on the veggies.  Pop it into the oven for 15-20 minutes, until the crust is golden and the cheese is bubbly.

I topped mine with arugula, but it's also great on it's own.  The only thing I'd change is I think I'd roll the crust out a little thinner.  Other than that it's great.  A wonderful way to use up veggies that you're not sure what to do with.
