CEiMB - Arugula, Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese Pizza

The lovely Maria Salamon of Half Meatball Half Matzoh Ball chose this week's Craving Ellie challenge. This pizza recipe can be found on page 173 of Ellie Kreiger's The Food You Crave Cookbook. Or, you could check at Maria's website.

I thought this would make a nice lunch for us last weekend. The DH hates goat cheese so I substituted feta. I really cannot tell a huge difference in feta and goat, but he says he can so it's an easy substitution if it makes him happy. I also added a few chunks of chicken to give it a bit more substance. I have to say, this was more like an appetizer to the two of us. We both were still hungry afterwards. The pizzas were good and tasty however. It is probably not a recipe I will make again, but we enjoyed trying something different.

I hope you all had a happy new year! We did a little partying, a little out of town visiting, and a little vegging out on the sofa with a blanket and a good movie which made for a perfect weekend. For those of you who like period movies, we watched Lost in Austen and I absolutely loved it. The DH slept through a bit of it but that was expected. I highly recommend it if you like Mr. Darcy types. The one on the far right is the hot Darcy in Lost in Austen. Check it out!

Yeah, I would have still been hungry too. I do like the way it looks though. I also love goat cheese, but can do feta too. My favorite movie Darcy is Colin Firth. The A&E one is the best!

I think that this is a great lunch, I can't imagine eating it for dinner, though. I can see how it is more of an appetizer portion than anything. I didn't have arugula so I had to make some last minute substitutions but I still loved this pizza. I love feta and goat cheese and it seems like both would be delicious on this "pizza." Happy new year!

I don't know why I liked this pizza, but I did. Also still hungry after eating. Nice to add the chicken.

Happy new year to you! I really liked this pizza with all of the additions. However without them, I can see how this was much more of an appetizer than a dinner!

Hope you are having fun in Vegas!
