Caramelized Onion Goat Cheese Pita Pizza

This caramelized onion & goat cheese pita pizza is happening right now! Pita pizzas are my go-to dinner option when I get home tired, hungry, and ready to eat. It’s quick, hearty, and involves very little prep. What I usually do is buy a pack of pita bread and freeze most of the rounds so I have dinner backups stocked. Just thaw one round in the morning and by the time you get home, it will be ready for use. For this recipe, you’ll be topping the pizza with caramelized onions and mushrooms, which can be prepared in less than 5 minutes.

After that, all you’ll be doing is crumbling the goat cheese on top and popping in the oven for 10 minutes or until the bread crust is crisp. The fresh basil and balsamic vinegar add the perfect finishing touch of sweetness to the recipe. Cut it up and enjoy with your favorite salad! Let us know in the comments below what your favorite toppings are for pita pizzas! Also let us know if you give this bad gal a try. xoxo

    Yummy!!! I make pita and tortilla pizzas a lot, but had some goat cheese laying around that I was looking for some inspiration on and this is just the ticket. The instructions are clear and look like they will work perfect (based on my pita pizza experience lol) so thanks for sharing this!
