During my days of unemployment, I usually wander around Montclair, read books at Starbucks and bake cookies for Boyfriend. Lunch often falls by the wayside and I wind up having a yogurt around 3:00. Yesterday I was inspired to actually make lunch after flipping through Fitness magazine. This strawberry and goat cheese pizza screamed my name. Top it all off with a hefty load of crumbled bacon and I was tearing this recipe from the magazine and heading to Whole Foods.
This pizza comes together quickly, which is perfect for someone craving bacon and goat cheese. Using naan for the pizza crust, this lunch went from ingredients to delicious in only fifteen minutes.
And it was amazing. I should make lunch more often.
From Fitness Magazine
5 slices bacon
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
2 pieces of whole wheat naan
3 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
1 1/2 cups strawberries, sliced
1 1/2 cups arugula
Preheat oven to 375 F. Cook bacon on a griddle until crisp. Remove from the heat and let cool on a paper towel-lined plate. Once cool enough, crumble with your hands.
Bring balsamic vinegar to a boil over medium-high heat. Once the vinegar comes to a boil, reduce heat to low and let vinegar reduce for 10 minutes.
Set pieces of naan on a baking sheet. Top with crumbled goat cheese, strawberries and bacon. Bake pizzas for 8 minutes, or until cheese is melty. Remove from the oven and drizzle reduced balsamic vinegar over the pizzas. Top with arugula.
