Pizza with aragula, goatcheese and sundried tomatoes

The first time I made my own pizza I fell in love all over again with it. It is so simple to make. Granted, you need time, a lot of time, but since that is not an issue any more I have made quite a few pizzas. Most of them are simple, but I am also trying to think out-of-the-box.

I do feel a little awkward posting a recipe for pizza, but I've noticed that it happens quite often so I'm just going to give it a shot.

Like I said I try to make new combinations every time and if at all possible with ingredients I have left-over. So the last time I wanted to make pizza I had several ingredients at my dispossal, including my own home-grown aragula which had to be used before it grew too big.

I ended up with a combination of aragula, soft goatcheese and sundried tomatoes. A combination I would normally use in a salad. But you know what? It actually works great on a pizza!

I realize it is a very sloppy recipe, but you should consider it more as a guideline. Just let it inspire you.

So, if you're looking for a new, fresh combination for a pizza, that is great on summer days.... Look no further!


Pizza with aragula, goatcheese and sundried tomatoes


1 portion pizza dough
Pizza sauce (will post a simple recipe soon)
50-100 gram (2 ounces) soft goatcheese like Bettine blanc
Sundried tomatoes, to taste
A couple of handsful of aragula
A handful of chopped walnuts
Some honey


Prepare the pizza dough.

Preheat the oven (and your pizza stone) as high as your oven can go.

When you have laid out the dough, put on some pizza sauce.

Put chunks of the goatcheese on the pizza. Add the tomatoes and the chopped walnuts.

Bake the pizza for about 8 minutes.

When you've taken the pizza out of the oven, put the aragula on top and drizzle some honey over it.

Serve immediately.
