how to make Caramelized Onion Pizza with Arugula, Goats Cheese and Honey recipe and preparation

Goat Cheese Pizza with Caramelized Onions and Olive
Serves 3

Ingredients:
For the dough:
250gm of all purpose flour plus more for dusting
a little more than 1 tsp active dry yeast
1 tsp sugar / honey
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp olive oil

For the Topping:
2 medium onions – thinly sliced
100gm goat cheese
Some olives
Olive oil to drizzle

Method:
Take ¼ cup of warm water and add the yeast and sugar / honey to it.
Stir and let it sit for about 15 minutes.
Take the flour in a large bowl and pour the yeast mixture into it.
Add the olive oil and salt and mix until you have a rather sticky dough.
Transfer this dough to a flat dusted working surface and start kneading with the back of your palms, until you have a smooth round ball of non-sticky dough.
Place this dough in a large bowl and drizzle some olive oil over it.
Cover the bowl with a cling film and let it prove for 2 hours.
After 2 hours, the dough should be double in size.
Take the dough again on a dusted working surface and knead again for 3-5 minutes.
Place it again inside the bowl and let it sit covered for 30-45 minutes more.
Heat some oil in a pan and add the sliced onions to it.
Sprinkle some salt over the onions and cook the onions on low flame until they become nicely golden.
Take them out of the pan and place on a kitchen towel.
Preheat your oven at 450F and get your pizza stone inside it.
Take the dough and flatten with your fingers or using a rolling pin.
Transfer the dough on the pizza stone and cook for 5-6 minutes.
After 5 minutes, scatter the caramelized onions on top of the pizza bread.
Scatter the olives and the goat cheese.
Drizzle a generous amount of the olive oil and cook for 10-12 minutes more or until the crust is golden and crisp.
As soon as the pizza comes out of the oven place the arugula on top of it and drizzle some olive oil.
Cut into triangles and serve immediately.
