Balsamic Mushroom Goat Cheese Pizza with Spinach

Yields: 6 slices



Heat oven to 550 degrees. Prepare the dough for topping as instructed.

Brush the olive oil evenly onto the dough. Sprinkle with minced garlic.

To prepare the mushrooms:

Heat the olive oil and red pepper flakes in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil begins to get hot, add the mushrooms. Leave them in the pan undisturbed until browned on one side, about 2 minutes, then flip and brown on the other side. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.

To top the pizza:

Sprinkle on 2/3 of the mozzarella cheese. Evenly distribute the mushrooms and spinach. Sprinkle the other 1/3 of the mozzarella cheese followed by the crumbled goat cheese. Season the top of the pizza with sea salt.

Bake 13-15 minutes or until the crust is golden and the cheese is melted and bubbly.

Allow the pizza to cool 3 minutes before slicing. Slice into 6 slices. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar. Serve with more red pepper flakes (optional).
