Pizza Dough

  • 250 grams all-purpose flour (about 2 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon dry active yeast
  • ¾ cup warm water

Goat Cheese Pizza

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium sweet onions, sliced thinly
  • 4 oz soft goat cheese, crumbled
  • 3 oz prosciutto, julienned
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese, shredded
  • cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • 1 tablespoon fresh sage, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • sprinkle of cornmeal


Pizza Dough

  • In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, salt and yeast. Add the water and mix with a wooden spoon or your hands. It should be sticky, but not lumpy.
  • Cover with saran wrap and a towel in a warm place, allowing it to rise for 24 hours. Transfer to a floured surface and shape into ball. Use when ready.


  • Place pizza stone in oven 8" from the broiler element and preheat to 500°F. You want stone to be in oven for at least 30 minutes at 500°F.
  • Heat medium skillet with 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and cook for 3 minutes with cover. Remove cover and continue to cook for an additional 20 minutes or until onions are golden brown, stirring frequently. Add a splash or two of water if it is getting browned too quickly.
  • Sprinkle pizza peel with cornmeal or flour. Use your hands to gently tug, pull and push the dough to the shape you want and place on pizza peel.
  • Spread caramelized onion evenly across the pizza dough, leaving an inch around the edges. Add the goat cheese and the prosciutto throughout the pizza. Finish topping with Parmesan cheese.
  • Once stone is preheated, turn broiler to high. Transfer pizza to pizza stone and bake for 4-5 minutes or until top is bubbly and bottom is golden brown.
  • Remove from oven. Top with pecans and sage. Drizzle some honey over top and serve immediately.


  • Use Great Dough: While you can buy some dough from the store, I recommend making this no-knead pizza dough. You just make it the night before and light it rise for 24 hours before using.
  • Spread Sauce Evenly: You will read a variety of opinions on sauce, but I’m a firm believer in lightly spreading the pizza sauce evenly. A sauce should compliment the pizza, but not be the star. This applies to the onions as well which act as a sauce.
  • Use a Pizza Stone: Place the pizza stone in the oven 8″ from the broiler element. Turn the oven to 500°F. You want to place the pizza stone in a cold oven, otherwise it could crack. The pizza stone holds heat which allows you to get a golden brown crust on the bottom.
  • Broil Pizza: Leave the pizza stone in the oven once it reaches 500°F for at least 30 minutes, but preferably an hour. When you are ready to make the pizza turn the broiler on. Transfer the pizza to the stone and bake for 4-5 minutes or until the top is bubbly and the bottom is golden brown.
