Roasted Beet & Goat Cheese Pizza

This recipe is best (and less messy!) with Golden beets, but it will work with the red ones too. It's so simple and so delicious!!!

Serves 4 - $13


  • 4 oz olive oil (2 oz for the beets and 2 oz for the pizza)
  • 1 lb golden beets
  • 4 oz goat cheese crumbles
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 pizza dough (fresh or premade)
  • Salt & Pepper for seasoning

  1. Preheat the oven to 375
  2. Scrub the beets and slice them into 1/2 in disks (I usually go a little thinner, because I like them really crispy. If you do this though, you have to pay close attention to make sure you don't burn them up!)
  3. Throw the beets on a foiled baking sheet or baking pan and drizzle 2 Tablespoons of the olive oil on top. Season with salt & pepper and toss it in the oven for 20 minutes, flipping them once during the cook-time
  4. As the beets are cooking, get your pizza dough or shell ready. Spread the olive oil and goat cheese, and chopped garlic on the pizza. When the beets are done, pull them out and turn the oven up to 450
  5. Toss the beets on the pizza and put it in the oven for 15-20 minutes until the cheese is all melted and a little bubbly
  6. Enjoy!
