Pear and Arugula Pizza with Caramelized Onions and Goat Cheese

After David saw my post yesterday with all the delicious green meals, he texted me and said, “looks like we have dinner planned out already for this week”. I guess that meant that he not only liked the green-foods I posted, but he was ready to try them out also. So we picked one that looked the best to us and no surprise to y’all, it was the pizza. WE LOVE PIZZA. PIZZASo without anymore blabber (or awesome Cosby Show pics), here’s the recipe. pizza2


Your favorite pizza dough-we used store bought
1 red onion
goat cheese
1 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper
1 pear
1 1/2 cups arugula
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice


1. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F to heat your pizza stone. Place the pear slices and red onion slices in a bowl and toss with 1/2 tablespoon of the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Place in skillet and cook until onions and pears are soft and translucent. Add splash of balsamic vinegar.
