Roasted Vegetable-and-Goat Cheese Pizza

Prep time 30 mins
Bake time 1 hr, 15 mins
Yield Makes 2 (12-inch) pizzas
You can use more or less cheese depending on what you have available; substituting 2 (4-ounce) logs or most of an 11-ounce log works just fine.


  • 1 medium-size sweet onion, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 medium eggplant, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch cubes
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 1 small zucchini, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 (24-ounce) package prebaked pizza crusts
  • 1 (7-ounce) container refrigerated prepared pesto sauce
  • 1 (9-ounce) package goat cheese, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts

How to Make It

  1. Toss onion with 1 teaspoon oil; arrange on an aluminum foil-lined jelly-roll or broiler pan.

  2. Bake at 425° for 20 minutes or until tender, stirring after 10 minutes.

  3. Toss together eggplant and next 6 ingredients; add to onion on jelly-roll pan. Bake 30 more minutes, stirring at 10-minute intervals.
