Apple, Goat Cheese and Pecan Pizza

Posted Sep 19 2011 12:00am

Good Evening and Happy Monday!

I hope you all had a great day.  It has been one of those go-go-go days and it feels great to sit down and relax for a few moments.  After getting home from soccer practice today, I set out to make Pizzas!

I saw a great recipe for Apple, Goat Cheese, and Pecan Pizza in the new issue of Cooking Light.  I could not wait to make this pizza especially after a long day.  I was not disappointed.   

Apple, Goat Cheese, and Pecan Pizza

Recipe adapted from: Sandy Gluck,   

  • (1-pound) spelt pizza crust
  • Cooking spray
  • 3 cups thinly sliced Honeyscrisp apple 
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) crumbled goat cheese
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons honey
  • 2 cups baby arugula
  • 3 tablespoons chopped pecans, toasted
  • Preparation

      1. Preheat oven to 450°. 2. Place pizza crust on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Arrange apple slices evenly over pizza crust; top with cheese. Sprinkle thyme evenly over cheese. Bake at 450° for 8 minutes or until cheese melts and begins to brown. 3. Combine oil and next 3 ingredients (through honey) in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add arugula; toss gently to coat. Sprinkle pecans evenly over pizza; top with arugula mixture. Cut pizza into 6 wedges.

      This was amazing!  The fresh thyme is a must and really made this pizza pop.  I also love any pizza topped with arugula salad.  So yummy!
    I loved this pizza and will definitely be making it again and again.....

    I split the pizza crust and made a Mushroom and Chicken Sausage Pizza with the other half of pizza crust just in case the kids did not like the Apple Pizza.

    The kids loved this and pizza night is always a hit!  
    I can't wait to start the Integrative Nutrition course work and wonder if I am going to change my eating habits dramatically.  I am really looking forward to learning more and sharing it with all of you!

    The kids are here to watch Dancing with the Stars so I gotta run.  Have a great rest of your evening.
