  • 1 recipe pizza dough (Find my favorite recipe here)
  • 1 cup pitted sweet cherries, cut in half (frozen or fresh)
  • 1 ball fresh mozzarella cheese
  • 4 oz. goat cheese
  • 1/4 of a red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 handful arugula, rinsed and dried
  • Salt, pepper or olive oil to taste
  • Balsamic glaze


  1. Pre-heat oven to 500 degrees. If using a pizza stone, make sure the stone is in the oven while it heats up.
  2. Spread pizza dough out on an aerated pizza pan. Poke with a fork or pizza docker. Pre-cook the dough about 6-8 minutes until it’s no longer doughy, but not to the point where it gets browned or crispy. (I cook mine on an aerated pan directly on top of the pre-heated pizza stone)
  3. Add the cheeses, red onion and cherries. Return to oven about 5-7 minutes until dough gets crispy and the cheese is melted.
  4. If desired, toss the arugula in olive oil, salt and pepper. Spread on top of pizza just before serving and drizzle with balsamic glaze.
