Fast & Easy Dinner: Goat Cheese Pizza

Fast & Easy Dinner: Goat Cheese Pizza


Although it's not necessarily a classic pairing, goat cheese and grapes make one delicious odd couple. I first fell in love with the duo as a topping for crostini and tonight I'm excited to experiment with the creamy cheese and burst-in-your-mouth fruit as a pizza topping. Store-bought dough means this meal comes together in under a half an hour.

For a dinner that is healthy and satisfying, serve with simple greens. Look at the uncomplicated recipe when you read more.

Ingredients

2 1/2 cups green or red grapes, halved
1 tablespoon finely chopped rosemary
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 pound store-bought pizza dough
8 ounces soft goat cheese

Directions

  1. Preheat a gas or charcoal grill to medium, or the oven to 450° F.
  2. Toss together the grapes, rosemary, and 1 tablespoon of the olive oil; set aside.
  3. Divide the dough into thirds and stretch each portion into a 10-inch circle.
  4. Place the rounds on the grill or in the oven until cooked through, about 6 minutes, flipping each halfway through if using a grill.
  5. Distribute the grapes, spoonfuls of the goat cheese, and the remaining olive oil on the pizzas.
  6. Cover the grill (if using) and heat until the cheese begins to melt, about 5 minutes.

Serves 6.
