I love roasted beets and I love pizza. This recipe had all my favorite ingredients, only instead of in a bowl they were baked on a pizza crust! I used a mixture of small gourment beets that I bought at the farmers market. This is definitely a keeper. This was pizza night -- the other pizza I made was CL Roasted Red Pepper Pesto tomato Pizza, which is outstanding.

This was the first time I ever had a fresh beet. I definitely was unsure if I would like them. I was completed suprised by how much I enjoyed the beets, especially on this pizza. The feta cheese and shallots are wonderful compliments to the beets. I sliced them very thin before topping. I used a gourmet fresh pizza dough from the Italian market. This was so wonderful and I am having some leftovers tonight.

I wasn't sure about the combination of beets, cheese, and honey, but this is delicious! I used light cream cheese instead of feta and loved the flavor.

My family loves beets, so I had to give this recipe a try. It's very tasty, with a very nice combination of flavors. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is that I think it could be a little more savory to balance the sweet and salty elements (maybe saute the shallots?). I also think it would be good as a topping for a flat bread/foccocia appetizer.

This pizza is outstanding! I love the mix of flavors! Drizzling the honey is a must! I made the crust in my bread machine & the pizza took less than 10 minutes to bake! So very yummy!

Really lovely on a summer night. The simple flavors are represented elegantly in this dish. I served it with a watermelon and mint salad.

I have made this multiple times. Works with red beets as well as golden. Great way to use up some beets from the garden.

The golden beets really make this recipe. Be sure to use a good local honey if you can.
