Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 pizza crust or flatbread
  • 16oz mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 white onion, sliced
  • 2C lightly packed spinach
  • 1/4C water for wilting spinach
  • 1 roasted red pepper, sliced thin
  • 3 1/2 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 1/4C crumbled goat cheese, or more to taste
  • 1/4C balsamic vinegar
  • Dried basil, thyme, oregano, and thyme (optional, for crust)

Instructions

Roasted Mushrooms and Onions

  1. Toss sliced mushrooms in 1.5 Tbsp olive oil and spread on a baking sheet.
  2. Toss sliced onion in 1 Tbsp olive oil and spread on a separate baking sheet.
  3. Sprinkle salt and pepper on mushrooms and onions.
  4. Roast at 350, stirring and checking every 5 minutes, until mushrooms are soft and browned and onions are browned (about 15 minutes).

Pizza

  1. Add balsamic vinegar to skillet or shallow pan and heat over medium low heat, stirring occasionally, until reduced and thickened. Set aside.
  2. Add spinach to empty skillet with 1/4C of water and cook until spinach is wilted.
  3. While spinach and glaze are cooking, add half of the mushrooms and onions to a food processor and pulse until a thick paste is formed, scraping down sides as needed with a spatula to ensure even mixing.
  4. (If you want a crispier crust, brush crust with olive oil and bake at 400 for about 3 minutes. For an herb crust, sprinkle crust with dried herbs before baking.)
  5. Spread mushroom/onion paste onto the crust. Top with remaining mushrooms, onions, and the spinach, red peppers, and crumbled goat cheese. Drizzle with some of the balsamic glaze.
  6. Bake in oven at 400 for 7-10 minutes until toppings are warmed through, crust is crisp, and cheese starts to brown.
  7. Top pizza with more balsamic glaze just before serving, if desired.
