My husband and I loved these pizzas! I made one with pesto sauce and one with a spicy arrabiata sauce just to mix up the flavors a bit, and add some variety-both were really tasty. I felt as though the bake time on the veggies was too long-my onions were practically burnt to a crisp before I even added the other veggies. I had to recut and add more onion and toss out some of the charred ones (could have been because the onion I used was rather small and thin?). I just kept an eye on the veggies and took them out when they were nicely browned and starting to soften. I did the onions for about 10 mins, and then an additional 20 after adding the remaining veggies and cheese. I felt as though we could have added another handful of veggies to make each pizza a bit heartier, but it was pretty delicious as is! Will make again! Next time I may try a homemade crust!
Roasted Vegetable-and-Goat Cheese Pizza
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.
