Arugula, Caramelized Onion, and Goat Cheese Pizza

Ellie Krieger The key to this pizza is cooking the onions very slowly over low heat so the sugars develop and caramelize. Their sweet flavor and purple color is the perfect foil for the peppery ribbons of arugula and tangy, creamy goat cheese.

  • Servings



  • 1

    tbsp olive oil

  • 1

    med red onion, cut in half and thinly sliced into half-moons

  • 4

    cups arugula, washed, dried, and coarsely chopped

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • Four

    6" diameter whole-wheat tortillas

  • 2

    oz fresh goat cheese, preferably reduced-fat


1.) Preheat the oven to 400 degree F. 2.) Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, until golden and the edges are browned, 10 to 12 minutes. Add the arugula and cook until it is wilted, about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper. 3.) Place the tortillas on a baking sheet and top each one with the arugula mixture. Crumble the goat cheese over each and bake until the tortillas are crisp and the cheese is slightly melted, about 10 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes, then cut each pizza into 4 wedges and serve
