Spinach Mushroom Red Onion Goat Cheese Pizza

This spinach mushroom red onion goat cheese pizza is packed full of flavor and ready in just under 30 minutes. It’s the perfect summer pizza!

As I write this I realize that this is only the second pizza I have blogged about. I’m not quite sure since I make pizza a lot but I guess I just forget to take pictures. I also realized that it stars goat cheese…again. The first pizza I wrote about also featured goat cheese. I think I might have a slight obsession with this delicious cheese. Every time I see it in the store I debate on whether or not I should buy some. Which to be honest is weird for me. I actually don’t like cheese that much.

That’s right. I said it. I don’t like cheese (that much). Don’t get me wrong. I love cheesy foods and what not, but when it comes to actually eating cheese…I’m not a fan. I refuse to eat cheese on sandwiches (except cheeseburgers) and I’m pretty picky about what cheeses I enjoy. I do not like sharp cheese…yuck! Smoked cheese makes me want to gag, and don’t even get me started on blue cheese.   BUT when it comes to goat cheese I cannot get enough of the stuff. Crumbled on salad, I’m down.  Breaded and fried, oh yeah. Spread on top of crackers, delicious. On pizza, my most favorite way, and this pizza did not let me down.

The goat cheese added a nice depth of flavor that paired well with spinach, mushrooms and red onions.  Another great thing about this pizza is that since it’s made at home you can put any topping on it you choose. I made this same pizza last week but put red bell pepper on the pizza too. I made it again because I didn’t want my leftover toppings to go to waste. This time I was sure to take some pictures so I could share it with all of you 🙂 I apologize for the picture quality though. I took the pictures late last night and had to use the flash. Enjoy!!!



Spinach Mushroom Red Onion Goat Cheese Pizza

This spinach mushroom red onion goat cheese pizza is packed full of flavor and ready in just under 30 minutes. It's the perfect summer pizza!


  • 16 ounces fresh pizza dough
  • 1/2 cup red onion - chopped
  • 1/2 cup baby portabello mushrooms - sliced
  • 3 cup baby spinach
  • 4 ounces goat cheese
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese - grated
  • Kosher salt

Let dough set out until room temperature. Put a little corn meal on sheet pan and spread dough out by hand. Drizzle a little bit of olive oil on top of dough and evenly spread over dough. Top with mozzarella, spinach, mushrooms and onions. Crumble goat cheese on top and then lightly drizzle with more olive oil.

* This pizza will look piled high because of the fresh spinach but it will cook down.

    Thank you! I am honored! Your pizza sounds fabulous. Mmmm goat cheese…
    Too funny – I am known for your number 3 fact – I never wear a jacket! When I walk into my building in the morning, I always get comments from co-workers 🙂

    I am all over goat cheese pizzas. I especially enjoy grilling the crust and then throwing the toppings on a few minutes before it’s done… mmm :).

    Too funny! I’m a cheese lover but absolutely can not STAND goat cheese! It seriously is like the most foul tasting stuff I’ve ever eaten! Still, the pizza looks really really good. Congrats on the award!

    This looks AMAZING. And that’s coming from a girl who doesn’t like pizza. I do however love goat cheese. I’m like you, I put it on everything. Definitely need to make this soon!

    I always drool over your pizzas…and I completely know what you mean about goat cheese…I could happily live on it! Lol, I’m glad you like your award! 🙂 Your fav sammy at Serendipity sounds really delish! My fav is the young chicken sammy…it’s got almonds and it’s served on Irish soda bread (absolutely phenomenal!). Of course it’s even better with a frozen hot chocolate to wash it down. 🙂

    Hey, I cannot stand fish too. And I do wish that I can eat it somehow. I also feel that I have missed many of most delicious foods 🙁

    Love your pizza. It makes my mouth watering right now..

    Mmm…pizza. Okay, maybe I’d leave out the goat cheese. Don’t laugh, but goats freak me out (something about their eyes) so I won’t eat their cheese unless tricked into it. I love your list! A blogger dinner would be awesome; you should totally plan one even though I probably wouldn’t go 🙁 Oh and I heard the Martha Steward blogger show was kind of a let-down, so you didn’t miss out on much!

    Thanks for passing the award along to me. You’re too sweet! 🙂 Your pizza looks amazing. I haven’t really experimented with goat cheese much in my kitchen, but I think I will have to pick some up. I have had it at restaurants and like it, but I never think to buy it myself!

    Hello. This is kind of an “unconventional” question , but have other visitors asked you how get the menu bar to look like you’ve got it? I also have a blog and am really looking to alter around the theme, however am scared to death to mess with it for fear of the search engines punishing me. I am very new to all of this …so i am just not positive exactly how to try to to it all yet. I’ll just keep working on it one day at a time Thanks for any help you can offer here.

    Congratulations on your awards! It was fun to learn a bit more about you. We are a lot alike. I’m loving Glee, got a new laptop for Christmas and dislike fish. I would really like a slice of that pizza though!

    Hi Brandy,
    thanks for so frequently visiting and commenting on my site. Your recipes look so delicious, I especially love this pizza (I’m definitely biased towards pizza), but I just might have to try your dulce de leche bars, too. You’re quite busy over here!
    all the best,

    I tried your pizza, and I added grilled chicken to the topping . It is the best ever pizza I had, so delicious, especially the goat cheese.

    Thank you so much for a wonderful recipe.
    seriously it is the best !
