It’s not everyday you find a new favorite pizza combo, but I think once you give this recipe a try, it will  become a go-to. There are lots of things I love about this pizza…the crispy, thin crust, the sour Granny Smith apple, the salty prosciutto, but my favorite part is the goat cheese sauce. I would like to say that I have enough self control that I did not eat the extra by the spoonful, but I did. I definitely did.

This pizza dough recipe will make about a 12 inch pizza, depending on how thin you roll the dough. It’s large enough for two if you pair it with a salad or go the personal pizza route by doubling the recipe. Make sure you save a little of the goat cheese sauce to use as a dipper for the crunchy pizza crust. Pizza heaven.

Ingredients
  1. PIZZA DOUGH
  2. 1/2 cup warm water
  3. 1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  4. 1 tablespoon honey
  5. 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  6. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  7. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  8. APRICOT DRIZZLE
  9. 1 1/2 tablespoon apricot preserve
  10. 1 teaspoon mayonaise
  11. pinch of salt and pepper
  12. GOAT CHEESE SAUCE
  13. 4 ounces goat cheese
  14. 1/3 cup heavy cream
  15. 3 large basil leaves
  16. 1 garlic glove, crushed
  17. pinch of salt and pepper
  18. TOPPINGS
  19. 6 slices prosciutto, or enough to cover entire pizza
  20. 1/2 Granny Smith apple, very thinly sliced
  21. 2 cups arugula
  22. 1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese
Instructions
  1. To make the pizza dough: Combine the water, yeast, and honey in a large bowl. Mix it well and let it sit for about 10 minutes, until it starts to become foamy. Add the flour, salt, and olive oil. Stir with a wooden spoon until a ball starts to form. It will still be sticky. Scoop out onto a floured surface and knead for a few minutes, sprinkling with flour until the dough starts to firm. Form the dough into a ball and place back into the bowl. Lightly drizzle with olive oil, turning the dough ball to cover evenly. Cover the bowl with a towel and place in a warm area to rise for about an hour.
  2. While the dough is rising, make the apricot drizzle. Put the apricot preserve into a small, microwavable bowl and microwave on high for 20 seconds. Remove and add the mayonnaise and salt and pepper. Mix well with a spoon. Set aside.
  3. To make the goat cheese sauce, put 4 ounces of goat cheese, heavy cream, basil, garlic, salt, and pepper in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Stir with a whisk until the goat cheese melts and the sauce is completely smooth. Continue to whisk for an extra 2-3 minutes, or until the sauce thickens slightly. Remove the garlic clove and basil leaves. Set aside.
  4. Once the pizza dough is ready, preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Prepare a large baking sheet with olive oil.
  5. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough out on a floured surface. If it is too sticky, dust with flour until it rolls smoothly. Roll the dough into a 12 inch pizza and place on the prepared baking sheet.
  6. Spoon some of the goat cheese sauce into the dough, saving the extra to later use as a dip for the pizza crust. Place the prosciutto in a single layer until the dough is covered. During baking the prosciutto will shrink so it is okay if it goes to the edge of the dough. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes, or until the crust is brown and cooked through.
  7. Pull out of the oven and top with the apple slices, arugula, and crumbled goat cheese. Finish with a light drizzle of the apricot sauce and a sprinkle of black pepper.
