Grilled Plums & Goat Cheese
Goat cheese, crumbled Gorgonzola, grilled plums, sautéed red onions, pine nuts, fresh herb vinaigrette, arugula
Ingredients: 1 ball of dough flour for dusting
semolina flour for pizza stone salt & pepper olive oil 4 plums, cut into wedges handful of arugula handful of pine nuts 1 log goat cheese, crumbled ½ cup crumbled Gorgonzola 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
For the vinaigrette: ¼ cup balsamic vinegar 1 teaspoon honey 1 tablespoon parsley, minced 1 tablespoon chives, minced 1 tablespoon basil, minced 1 clove garlic, minced ¼ cup olive oil salt & pepper to taste
Directions: Preheat your oven to 550° F, and your grill pan to medium. While these are heating up, you can start to saute your onions. Heat a tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat and saute them with some salt & pepper until softened, but still with a little bite to them.
When your grill pan (or Griddler, or whatever) is hot, grill the plum wedges for a couple minutes on each side, until they have some nice brown grill marks.
Meanwhile, make your vinaigrette by combining all of the ingredients (minus the olive oil), and then slowly whisking in the oil.
When your oven is hot, prepare your dough using the instructions on the right. Once you’ve baked it for a minute, take it out and brush it lightly with olive oil.
Next, sprinkle the cheeses on top, followed by the onions, plums & pine nuts. Drizzle about half of the vinaigrette over the pizza and pop it in the oven, baking until the crust is a nice golden brown. Then add the arugula, drizzle the remaining vinaigrette, and enjoy!
