This pizza combines the earthiness of sage, rosemary, and thyme in an aromatic topping. Sage and rosemary impart a slightly piney flavor with citrus undertones. And thyme, with a trace of clove and pepper, enhances almost any food! Then add the yummy goat cheese and you have a winner!
- 1 (10 ounce) whole-wheat pizza crusts or 1 (10 ounce) prepared whole wheat pizza dough

This is wonderful! It is delicious and makes a beautiful presentation, while being very easy to prepare. This is definitely the recipe to go to when the garden is being especially productive. I had to make one little switch to a gluten free crust due to dietary need, and did sprinkle a bit of Parmesan on top, as well. Thanks for sharing!
Delicious! This gourmet pizza has wonderful ingredients which made it very addictive. I had to substitute the herbs and use dry sage and thyme, but having to say that I think the pizza would have been more delicious if I had used fresh herbs. Sauteing the onion gave the pizza a wonderful sweet caramel flavour and the creamy goats cheese with the herbs gave it wonderful texture. With every bite of the pizza I wanted more! Thank you Sharon123 for another great pizza recipe.
