Caramelized Onion, Bacon and Goat Cheese pizza.

Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had a good Monday. We are another day closer to Friday so turn that frown upside down! I’m thinking of all my friends and fellow bloggers in the northeast and along the east coast still getting hit with the snow 😦

This week the Fit Dish is dishing out on our favorite healthy recipes.

I am going to share with all of you my favorite pizza recipe. Yep, that’s right pizza, Caramelized Onion, Bacon and Goat Cheese pizza! Yum! Who says pizza can’t be healthy? πŸ˜‰

I actually picked up this recipe from a co-worker and over time tweaked the recipe to incorporate the freshest and healthiest ingredients possible.

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Serving: 2-4

Ingredients you’ll need:

1 Organic Pizza Crust (or dough) of your choice (homemade or store bought)

4-6oz of Goat Cheese (more or less depending on your preference)

1 small red onion (diced)

3 strips of Turkey Bacon

1 cup of tomato sauce (low sodium or no salt added)

1 tsp Organic Virgin Coconut oil

Directions:

First, begin by cooking your bacon. Either on the stove or in the microwave or oven. I prefer the oven for an easy clean up. Follow the package instructions and cook to your level of crispiness. Keep in mind the bacon with have additional cook time when topped and thrown back in the oven as a whole pizza.

I have a few extra pieces of bacon as I was meal prepping for the week :)

Once the bacon is cooked, remove bacon from pan and let drain on a paper-towel covered plate, set it off to the side to cool down. In the meantime start sautΓ©ing your onion. I use coconut oil in lieu of regular olive oil. I am also not a huge fan on onion but I do like the taste it counteracts with the goat cheese, so I used less than half of what the recipe called for.

After your bacon has had some time to cool down, chop it up. I prefer mine to be in strips rather than crumbles.

Now you can begin to assemble your pizza!

Spread the sauce over the crust/dough, leaving a 1/4 to 1-inch border.

Crumble the goat cheese on top.

Spread the onions over the cheese.

Crumble the bacon on top.

Bake on 400 for 10-12 or until desired level of crispiness is reached.

Bon appetite!

Do you make your own pizza often? What kind of toppings do you like on your pizza?

  1. I think we’ve both got goat cheese on our minds this week. This sounds unbelievably good — I love every element of it! πŸ™‚

  2. That looks really good, but I am not a fan of goat cheese at all. I wonder if it’d be just as good with mozzarella. Guess you can’t go wrong with any cheese really. Ha! Thanks for sharing!

  3. The goat cheese looks amazing! I can’t thank you enough for posting this. There is this pizza place we love in town, that we’re trying to stay away from…haha….and this goat cheese idea will do the trick. Seriously, THANK YOU! So happy you linked up. #fitfamlove
