How Do I Make This Goat Cheese Pizza Recipe?

This simple pizza recipe features an easy homemade crust topped with a delicious combination of ingredients. And the best part is that you can make it in seven simple steps! Just follow these easy instructions to make your own artichoke pizza for dinner tonight.

Step One: Prepare the Yeast

Add warm water to your mixing bowl to heat the inside of the bowl. Discard the water and add the yeast, sugar, and warm water. Stir to mix the ingredients together and let it rest in a warm spot for 7 to 10 minutes until the yeast begins to bubble.

Step Two: Mix the Dough

When the yeast is ready, add the flour and salt to the bowl. Using the hook attachment on your stand mixer, blend the ingredients together by mixing on low speed for around one minute. Once the flour is mixed, turn the speed up to medium and continue kneading the dough until it begins to come together to form a ball.

Step Three: Knead the Dough

Lightly flour your work surface and place the dough on the table. Knead the dough until it’s smooth and feels like it springs back when you touch it.

Step Four: Let the Dough Rise

Grease a clean bowl with olive oil and place the dough inside. Coat all sides of the dough in the oil and cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a dry towel. Place the bowl in a warm spot and let it rise for around one hour until it has doubled in size.

Step Five: Prepare Your Crust

After the dough has finished rising, spray a baking sheet or pizza pan with nonstick cooking spray. Roll the dough out to fit the pan and place it on top. Fold over the edges to form a crust to keep the sauce from dripping as the pizza bakes. Brush the top of the crust with oil, then use a fork to pierce the dough all over.

Spread the pizza sauce over the top of the prepared crust and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Spread the artichoke hearts over the top of the cheese, then add the goat cheese and sundried tomatoes.

Goat Cheese Pizza Topping Ideas

When you try the yummy toppings on this goat cheese pizza recipe, you’re going to love the combination of artichoke hearts and tomatoes! But there are a variety of other delicious toppings you could add to your own pizza recipe. Try these ingredient ideas the next time you prepare this homemade pizza:

  • Fresh herbs. One of the easiest ways to add flavor to your pizza is with the help of fresh herbs. Try topping your pizza with basil, oregano, or parsley for added flavor.
  • Vegetables. In addition to sundried tomatoes and artichoke hearts, there are a variety of other veggies you could include on top of your pizza, like asparagus spears, peas, bell pepper, mushrooms, olives, and caramelized onions. You could also add some quick pickled banana peppers to the top. 
  • Fruits. Add some sweetness to your pizza with the help of fruit! Top your pizza with chopped apples, pears, or pineapple.
  • Leafy greens. Topping your pizza with leafy greens is a great way to complement the goat cheese. Dress up your pizza with greens like spinach, kale, or microgreens.
  • Meats. Although this goat cheese pizza recipe is vegetarian, there’s no reason you can’t add some meat to the top of your pizza if you enjoy it! Try adding prosciutto, bacon, ham, pepperoni, salami, or shredded chicken.
  • Sauces and seasoning. Another easy way to add even more flavor to your pizza is with the help of sauces and seasonings. Try drizzling balsamic vinegar or honey on top of the pizza before serving or sprinkling red pepper flakes to add some heat.
  • Additional cheeses. While goat cheese is the star of this pizza recipe, it’s not the only type of cheese you can use. Top your pizza with other artisanal cheeses, like fontina, asiago, or parmesan, before baking for added cheesiness.
