1/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
2 teaspoons olive oil, divided
1 cup thinly sliced red onion
1 (8-ounce) whole-wheat pizza crust
1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 ounces goat cheese, sliced
3/4 cup loosely packed baby arugula


1. Preheat oven to 450°. Toast walnuts on a baking sheet 3–4 minutes or until fragrant and lightly browned. Transfer immediately to a plate; let cool.

2. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat; add onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, 6–8 minutes or until onion is soft and golden.

3. Place crust on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Top with walnuts, onion, and tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper; arrange goat cheese on top.

4. Bake for 7 minutes or until crust is golden, crisp, and warmed through. Scatter arugula on top, and drizzle with remaining oil. Let cool slightly before cutting into wedges.
