I love experimenting in the kitchen. Some of my favorite recipes happen by accident when I am forced to substitute ingredients because I have run out of something. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t, but each time I learn something new and have even created a few favorite recipes.
One really easy way to experiment with flavors in your kitchen is to make homemade pizza. I always try to have pizza crust on hand because whenever my refrigerator and pantry shelves are empty, I can still come up with enough ingredients to make a pizza.
That is actually how I created this recipe. The combination of toppings may sound bizarre, but one bite and you realize it really is divine!
Goat Cheese, Apple and Pine Nut Pizza
1 apple, very thinly sliced
handful of pine nuts
about ½ cup mozzarella cheese
1 prebaked pizza crust
Preheat your oven to450 degrees.
Take your pizza crust and lightly brush it with olive oil. Top with a very thin layer of mozzarella cheese, followed by desired amount of goat cheese, apple slices and pine nuts. Drizzle with olive oil and top with any dried herbs you may have on hand, I used marjoram and thyme.
Place directly on oven rack and bake for 8-10 minutes or until crispy and golden brown.
