This recipe truly reflects how I cook. I like to use things I have on hand and make sure I finish off the food I buy. I don’t like to waste food.
This recipe uses some of the ham steak leftover from my Ham & Potato Soup and goat cheese leftover from a fabulous chorizo and goat cheese pizza that I’ll have to remake because my camera ATE my pictures. Not really, but they got corrupted somehow.
Ham & Goat Cheese Pizza
- 1 thin crust pizza crust
- olive oil
- 4-6 ounces of goat cheese
- 1/4 pound ham steak
- 1 small onion thinly sliced
- 1 avocado, sliced
Begin by making the crust. Add the yeast to warm water.
Toss the onions into a small skillet with a little brown sugar.
Use as much as you like, just remember goat cheese is pungent. Don’t go too crazy.
Spread the crust out on a cookie sheet that is generously sprinkled with cornmeal. Spread a tablespoon or so of olive oil on the crust.
I was a little hesitant to put this combination together. I wasn’t 100% sure the flavors would complement. In Dan and my expert opinion, the ham and goat cheese complemented each other perfectly. The slightly sweet and salty was a great pairing with the pungent goat cheese. The avocado didn’t so much add another flavor but a mellow smoothness that complemented everything.
In a word, this pizza was delish!
