Caramelised Onions, Apples and Goat Cheese Pizza
This Caramelised Onions, Apples and Goat Cheese Pizza is sprinkled with thyme, drizzled with honey and incredibly tasty!
Pizza Party Friday Night! There’s a Youtube show I used to (okay I still watch sometimes) with a family who said that phrase all the time and ever since I say it every time pizza is had on a Friday night. I know, very original of me. We used to order pizza every Friday but other than converting to a healthier lifestyle, I found the vegetarian pizza option to be BOH-RING.
And now, how mature of me.
Sometimes we vegetarians want a different kind of pizza, not your always-the-same tomato sauce topped with cheese and a ton of vegetables (I love you olives, but seriously). I’ve been on a pizza kick of late and while I usually make mini pizzas for myself I wanted to take a try at a large pizza with some unusual but absolutely delicious fall flavours. SO, for your Pizza Party Friday Night, we have Caramelised Onions, Apples and Goat Cheese Pizza.
You may be able to tell by now that I’m slightly obsessed with caramelised onions and apples but they make such a beautiful combination together, both sweet in their own way and their flavours enhanced greatly that when paired any kind of cheese they marry so well. I have to say out of all cheeses, goat cheese is my absolute favourite since it is so incredibly soft and is so easy to flavour. It almost seemed like a no-brainer when I was trying to figure out what to put on this pizza.
After baking for a short while, I sprinkled the pizza with them. It may not seem like much, but it makes such an incredible difference in both the delectable aroma that thyme gives off and the hints of extra freshness to the pizza that will make you pine for a slice of this creamy goodness.
In case you couldn’t tell, I would love another slice right now. Right. Now.
Then came the honey drizzle. Now, I’m a major honey fan, pure honey, the kind that could top off anything, and I find that goat cheese and honey were literally meant for each other. Where one goes, the other goes for me. So after drizzling honey on top, I said “THIS IS IT.” I would highly recommend that you drizzle a bit over your slice of the entire pizza and taste the difference. Any notes that were an undertone are now highlighted and brought to life.
So, excuse me while I whip up another one of these to celebrate Pizza Pa…I think you get it.
…rty Friday Night.
Caramelised Onions, Apples and Goat Cheese Pizza
- 1 gluten free pizza crust, I made mine from a gluten free pizza crust mix
- 1 large onion, sliced thinly
- 1 apple, cored and sliced thinly
- 4 ounces herbed goat cheese, softened or at room temperature
- 3 sprigs thyme
- 2 tablespoons honey, for drizzling
- 4 tablespoons vegan butter spread, or regular butter
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
- In a pan over medium heat, melt two tablespoons of the butter. When pan is hot, add the onions and swirl around so they are covered, and cook down for 15 minutes until soft, swirling every 5 minutes so they don't burn.
- While these are cooking, heat the remaining two tablespoons in pan over medium high heat and add the apple slices and cook down for 10 minutes until soft. Remove from heat when finished.
- Spread the goat cheese over the pizza crust. Add the apples, then the onions on top.
Bake for 10 minutes in the oven until the goat cheese is slightly melted.
- Strip the thyme from the leaves and sprinkle on top. Drizzle with honey and serve.

My mouth is seriously watering looking at this pizza! I love caramelized too and the fact that you paired them with goat cheese is amazing! I’m so making this pizza soon!

Pizza Party Friday night! Was that a SacconeJoly reference? 😛

When I went looking for recipes for today’s apple recipe roundup, your recipe just jumped out as having to be on the list. I can’t wait to try it myself!
You can see it here. Hope you get a bunch of traffic and pins from the post.
Thanks so much Karen, how sweet of you! I will definitely go and check it out.
Such a fabulous idea! It is totally delicious. I substituted fresh basil leaves for the thyme because the only thyme I had was dry. I skipped the honey but topped the pizza with arugula. I am savoring it right now! Thank you! A keeper!
We’re so happy that you enjoyed this recipe Helene! Thank you so much for reading and leaving such a nice comment!
This is absolutely delicious! One of my favorite pizza recipes ever. I’ve made this recipe multiple times for friends and it’s always a huge hit! The only slight modification I use is a base of mozzarella and sprinkle goat cheese on top. Thank you so much for this amazing recipe!
