Three Cheese Pizza with Goat Cheese


Today was finally our back to school day. It is also my day too. As my son takes Latin 3/4 at MSU this is our first day this school year to make the 2 1/2 hour trip. I am glad I am able to do this for him but feel bad for all the other students at his school that cannot take advantage of some of the opportunities because their parents cannot do this because of work or cost. He is fortunate that at the end of this year he will take the AP exam in Latin and the national exam in Latin after 2 years of classes. He will get college credit for it if he scores high enough.

Dinners for the next few weeks need to be super simple. Nothing is easier than pizza. You can use your own homemade crust, store purchased pizza dough, or preformed crust to make this dish. Whatever works best for you.

Verdict:

You need to let this pizza cook the full time and not overuse the garlic and oil on the crust. It will look runny until it is fully cooked then will look like a cheese pizza when it is done.

We all really liked this pizza. It is rich and delicious. My son was especially pleased with this dish. He had it for breakfast and lunch the next day.

I served this with a spinach salad to complete the meal.
