Balsamic Glazed Goat Cheese Pizza


Pizza is one thing I never make at home so this is actually my first pizza made from scratch. When I saw the whole wheat pizza dough at Trader Joe's, I really wanted to try it along with some toppings that you can't typically order from a pizza restaurant. 


Ingredients:
Whole wheat pizza dough
3 chicken sausages, sliced
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup goat cheese
3/4 cup pizza sauce
1 tbsp dried Italian seasoning
20 basil leaves, chopped
1 tbsp. Olive oil
Balsamic glaze





What To Do:
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Roll the pizza dough onto pizza stone or baking sheet. Using a basting brush to baste dough with olive oil.

2. Cook the dough by itself for about 7 minutes and remove from oven. Evenly layer pizza sauce on top of the dough and sprinkle with Italian seasonings and black pepper. Next add mozzarella cheese, chopped basil leaves, chicken sausage, and finally sprinkle with crumbled goat cheese. Place in oven and bake for 15 minutes or until crust edges are browned.


3. Remove pizza from the oven and top with balsamic glaze going in a zig-zag motion (optional). Let cool for 5 minutes before using a pizza cutter to cut into slices.


Enjoy!

  8. Oh my, looks like heaven! Goat cheese is a literally my favorite of all the soft cheeses! And I absolutely love whole wheat pizza dough. We do not have a Trader Joe's, darn it or that's where I would be getting it from as I've heard it is wonderful. Great recipe and I just wrote down all these ingredients on my grocery list so thank you for a new one to try! Hope you have a terrific Tuesday!
