Red cabbage, caramelized onion, and goat cheese pizza
Because Valentine's Day is right around the corner, I'm going to be featuring pretty red foods this weekend. Starting with this red cabbage pizza. (Which, okay, is really more purple than red, but it's still a gorgeous color.)
I know you're thinking, "Cabbage on pizza? Really?" But this was really good. Not cabbagey at all. And healthy, despite all the cheese!
On a whole-wheat pizza crust, I layered:
a handful of gorgonzola (optional)
a handful of mozzarella (optional)
one whole gently sauteed chopped red cabbage
lots of goat cheese
...and baked at 475 until the crust was done.
To caramelize onions, slice two thinly and let them cook down on medium-low for a long time, at least 45 minutes. They'll turn a dark brown, and get very sweet. To saute the cabbage, chop in half, remove the stem, slice thinly, and add to a hot pan with a little olive oil. Just for a few minutes, just enough time for the cabbage to start to get soft. Any more than that, and it will start to lose its pretty color.
