Herb Crusted Goat Cheese Pan Pizza
I’ve warned you about the pan pizza recipes but I’m trying not to be obnoxious! I wrote this recipe last month but I didn’t want to post it too close to my other pizza recipes; I can’t help it, they’re so good! Now a little note about this recipe, it’s inspired by herb crusted goat cheese, not made with it! I love my herb garden!!!!

A simple and healthy Pan Pizza recipe that’s inspired by herb crusted goat cheese, not made with it! I love my herb garden!!!!
½ Batch of my whole wheat pizza dough
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
½ Cup Passata (strained tomatoes)
90 g grated part skim mozzarella cheese
70 g Reduced Fat Goat Cheese
2 Sprigs of fresh rosemary (leaves only)
5 Sprigs of fresh thyme (leaves only)
1 tsp dried oregano
Preheat your oven to 400.
You’ll need a cast iron skillet (preferably) or an oven safe skillet.
After you have made the dough and it has rested for an hour, pour one tbsp of the olive oil into the cast iron skillet. Use a brush or paper towel to completely grease the pan in an even layer with the oil.
Turn the heat on the pan to medium high.
Put the pizza dough in the frying pan (directly from the bowl) and spread it out completely covering the bottom of the pan.
When the bottom of the pizza is browned and you can see the dough is starting to cook on top, you can build your pizza;
Spread the passata evenly across the dough and then season it well with salt and pepper.
Top the pizza evenly with the mozzarella.
The evenly top with the goat cheese, just drop chunks of it everywhere.
Then top the pizza evenly with the mix of herbs.
Bake for 12 – 15 minutes, until the cheese has melted and is slightly browned; the crust should also be browned at this point.
- I don’t know why but it has to be dried oregano.
- I love the reduced fat Goat Cheese; you really can’t tell it has 30% less fat then the original.
- The dough can be made ahead of time, a day o two stored in the fridge.
- Feel free to use store-bought dough in a pinch.
