So, who said:
Wikipedia is the best thing ever. Anyone in the world can write anything they want about any subject, so you know you are getting the best possible information.
Some of you guessed right – it was a Michael Scott from The Office! Ahh, I just love that show! The last couple of episodes have been awesome and have made me rekindle my love for Jim. I don’t know what happened, but I kind of felt indifferent about him for awhile. No more! I ♥ Jim. And Pam, for that matter.
I ♥ Jam.
At any rate, THANK YOU for all your goat cheese recipes and ideas today! I have several dishes that I want to try, so the goat cheese stands at the Farmer’s Market should expect to see me quite often this summer. ;) For dinner tonight, I incorporated my fresh cheese into some PIZZA!
Spicy Sausage & Sundried Tomato Goat Cheese Pizza
1 12″ pre-made pizza crust (I used Boboli Whole Wheat crust)
1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 Tablespoon chopped garlic
2 spicy Italian sausages, casings removed, cooked & drained
1 cup chopped, steamed asparagus
2/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2.5 oz fresh chevre goat cheese
1/4 cup chopped sundried tomatoes
Layer ingredients on the pizza crust, bake according to package directions and enjoy!
This pizza was piled HIGH and baked up in 8 minutes flat!
The goat cheese kept it’s shape as the pizza baked, but when I pressed on it, it kind of melted down everywhere – INSANE!
Cold goat cheese right out of the fridge is wonderfully tangy – almost like cream cheese. As it warms in the oven though, the chevre becomes smooth, mellow and wonderfully luscious.
As I was assembling the pizza, I wondered if both mozzarella AND goat cheese were necessary. I can happily report that, yes, they are! The mozz was gooey, while the chevre was creamy. They were the dream team!
You can really taste ALL the layers of flavor in this pizza too. Savory garlic, tangy goat cheese, spicy sausage and sweet sundried tomatoes.
For dessert, I shall be dining on a Funfetti Cupcake.
I made these for Ben because they’re his favorite, and clearly I cannot resist them!
Ben eats his cupcakes in one bite, while I prefer to savor mine with at least four. What about you? How many bites per cupcake?
Pizza and cupcakes…what am I – 11? Ahh, TGIF. :)
In Friday evening news, I picked up The Men Who Stare At Goats from Red Box to watch tonight. George Clooney kind of drives me nuts – but I’m so intrigued by this movie. I have no idea what it’s about, yet it’s extremely popular. Hmmm… We shall see!!!
Have a great Friday night, whatever it is you’re doing!
What’s got to be on your perfect pizza pie? Preferred crust?
