In the Kitchen: Spring Onion Pizza
We make pizza at home at least once a month. It is a great way for us to unwind and spend some time together. Plus, we get to try any topping combination that calls our names. We mostly keep it simple with sliced tomatoes or olives, but sometimes it is fun to be experimental. I recently discovered the most delicious, and well priced, goat cheese from Trader Joe's and have been putting it on everything. Add a few spring onions for a touch of spring and a little prosciutto and you have a winning pizza combination.
Spring Onion Pizza
Basic Pizza Dough
1 28 ounce can crushed tomatoes
4 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon fresh basil
1/2 cup green onions, sliced
1/4 cup prosciutto, sliced
3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup goat cheese
Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
Follow Basic Pizza Dough instructions for making the crust.
Heat a saucepan over medium heat and add olive oil and garlic. Saute for about 1 minute until fragrant. Add crushed tomatoes and herbs and bring to a boil. Reduce and simmer for 15 minutes.
Top crust with desired amount of sauce, we normally use about 1 cup. Then, top pizza with cheeses, proscuitto and 1/4 cup spring onions. Cook pizza for about 5 minutes or until everything is browned and melted. Top with remaining spring onions.
