Goat Cheese and Sun Dried Tomato Pizza

I'm pretty sure this was the first thing Rich and I made together, though that was back when we were just friends... we made it recently as a couple and we'll be making it again and again because it's delicious (and my favorite pizza!).

Pizza dough
Pizza sauce (I omit this like, half the time)
Goat cheese
Sun dried tomatoes
Black olives

We used herb dough!

Follow the instructions on the dough package for preparation. Let it rise for about 20 minutes on a floury surface and then knead and roll it into the shape you want. If you use a rolling pin flour it so the dough doesn't stick to it. 

Keep the sauce away from the edges so you can eat it.

Make sure your dough is even and reaches the edges of your pan otherwise it will curl away as it bakes, and sauce and cheese can fall into the oven. Spread the dough evenly with the pizza sauce and crumble the goat cheese over it. (You can also put some shredded mozzarella on the goat cheese for extra melty, but it's not necessary.)

Crimini mushrooms

Chop the olives and mushrooms and toss them on the pizza with the sun dried tomatoes. Try not to make the middle of the pizza too heavy or cutting it will be nearly impossible.

Make it colorful :)

Bake at 350 degrees until the cheese is bubbly and the edges of the dough are browned (like 20-25 minutes).

Mmmm toasty!

Well, I started out writing this around 9:30pm, already having decided I would not snack even though snacking is the only thing I've been thinking about, and now I'm full on hungry. Maybe we'll make this again this weekend...
