Goat Cheese and Tomato Pizettes

This was one of the first recipes I created when I started cooking for my husband a couple years after we got married. It was part of my attempt to get him to enjoy pita pizzas – which now he actually requests pretty frequently! I served these crispy pizettes with homemade asparagus soup and it was a great light dinner for the two of us.

Goat cheese has such a distinct taste/flavor, you don’t really need to use too much of it to make this pizette stand out.

The Ingredients: 

  • Whole wheat pita bread (each pita bread should have no more than 140 calories per round, and 3-4g fiber)
  • Fresh goat cheese – use about 1 oz per pizza
  • Fresh basil, thinly sliced
  • 2 Roma Tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • Red onion – diced
  • 1/2 red pepper – diced
  • 2 cloves garlic – minced
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • Black pepper

The Directions:

  1. Mix the garlic and olive oil. Using a pastry brush, lightly spread on both sides of the pita. On a panini press or a grill pan, grill the pita on both sides until crispy.
  2. Crumble the goat cheese on the pita and let it melt a little
  3. Spread the tomato slices, diced red pepper & red onion on top of the goat cheese. Top with fresh basil slices.
  4. Use 1/4 tsp of the garlic olive oil mixture and sprinkle on top of the pizette.
  5. If you have a toaster oven, toast on low for 3-4 min. If you don’t have a toaster oven, you can put the pizzettes under a broiler for 3-4 min until the cheese and ingredients are warmed through.
  6. Top with a sprinkle of black pepper.

Super easy, delicious, light and tasty. Not bad for a first-time-cook’s creation! Here’s to goat cheese and those great farmers out there who keep producing high quality cheeses for all of us to enjoy.

Goat Cheese and Tomato Pizzettes

I love trying new flavors on pizza, and my husband is pizza's number one fan, so it all works out! Goat cheese is great because it doesn't take a lot to enhance flavor.

Appetizers are the perfect complement to my favorite entrees and dinner party menus. You can also make a small batch for a snack, or turn them into a complete meal.

  1. Made these for a girls’ wine and cheese night and my friends were totally impressed! Super simple to make, and you can taste the flavors of all the ingredients. They look pretty when they are done, and taste even better!

    • Oh yay! I’m so glad to hear that Lauren! 🙂 I recently made these for a wine and cheese night too – they’re the perfect finger food!
