    Kitchen Kozy's Note:

    This is a little more grown-up than your average pizza. (I don't necessarily measure all the toppings, just use as much as you want!)

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    slices

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      If the pizza dough has been refrigerated, take it out and let it warm up a bit.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large pan and then add the mushrooms and chopped onions. Saute until soft. Add the sun-dried tomatoes and cook for another minute or two. If there is liquid remaining in the pain, drain it.
    3. 3
      Stretch out the pizza dough onto a lightly oiled pizza pan, or a pizza stone.
    4. 4
      spread the pesto sauce onto the dough -- it's best of the pesto is a little less oily than usual: if I buy store-bought I let it separate a bit in the container and then avoid the oil rather than mixing it back inches.
    5. 5
      Top with the sauteed vegetables, then the shredded cheese.
    6. 6
      Add the black olives and small (1/2 inch cubes) chunks of the goat cheese.
    7. 7
      Bake according to the instructions on the dough or dough recipe (generally 450 degrees for about 10-12 minutes).
    8. 8
      Slice and enjoy!

      This is good!! Very rich pizza, so you definitely need lots of people to share this with!! I completely forgot the black olives at the store but it didn't need them! The saute of the mushrooms and onions is key and I used homemade pesto (Classic Pesto). It was so fresh and tasted like great Italian pizza, thanks for posting!!

      I used Healthy Italian Breadsticks or Pizza Crust for the dough, added a bit of garlic to the onion/mushroom mixture, and left off the goat cheese. It tasted wonderful with each bite offering a different flavor. Thanks Kitchen Kozy!

      We had pizza night for my birthday this evening. I made several small pizzas with whole wheat dough and this was one I liked a lot. I brushed roasted garlic and olive oil on my crust and prebaked it some then spread on my pesto and the other ingredients. I used a cheese blend of parmesan, asagio, romano, fontina, provolone, and mozzarella. I added chicken (Pesto Coated Chicken Skewers) because I like my protein and artichokes cause I had them. Made for ZWT4. Thanks for posting.
