Servings: 8 servings
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 2 red onions sliced thin
- 2 tbsp coconut sugar
- 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- ¼ tsp salt
- 100 grams goat cheese crumbled
- fresh thyme
Prepare the Pizza Dough
Prepare the pizza base by mixing together the water, honey, and yeast in a small mixing bowl, stir and set aside for 10 minutes to allow the yeast to start to foam.
In a separate mixing bowl whisk together the flour and salt.
When the yeast mixture starts to foam, pour it into the flour mixture along with the oil. Stir to form a dough.
Remove the dough onto a floured work space or cutting board and knead for 2-3 minutes. Return the dough to the mixing bowl. Cover and rest the dough for 30-45 minutes to allow it to double in size.
Prepare Caramelized Onions
While the dough is resting, prepare the caramelized onions by heating the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Sauté the onions for 2-3 minutes then reduce the heat, continue to stir as they cook for 10 minutes, adding a little water to stop them from sticking to the base of the skillet. Add the coconut sugar and balsamic vinegar and stir through.
When the onions have completely caramelized, remove from the heat, season with salt, and set aside to cool.
Preheat the oven to 390F / 200C. If using a pizza stone, place it into the oven to heat.
When the dough has doubled in size, remove it from the bowl and spread the dough into a 12 inch round on a tray lined with baking paper or divide and roll into 2 smaller pizzas.
Top the pizza base with the caramelized onion, crumbled goat's cheese, and fresh thyme.
If using a pizza stone transfer the prepared pizza onto the pizza stone or cook the pizza as it is on the baking tray for 15-20 mins or until cooked.
Remove from the oven, cut into 8 even pieces.
- Make sure the water is warm and not hot otherwise the yeast won't activate.
- Ensure the dough is left in a warm place to rise.
- Pizza dough can be prepared ahead of time and stored, covered in the fridge. Allow it to come to room temperature before using.
- Pizza bases can be cooked and frozen for up to 3 months.
