Radish-and-Goat-Cheese-Pizza-with-Spicy-Mixed-Greens

Radish and Goat Cheese pizza

This unique light pizza is perfect for showcasing the freshest late-spring ingredients. The crust gets a slather of ricotta and then a sprinkle of crushed red pepper flakes, crumbled tangy goat cheese, and a little optional cooked chicken. A simple toss of spicy mixed greens and kicky sliced radishes top it off. Any spring green mix will work with this pizza, but the occasional baby mustard green and/or peppery arugula will add a welcome little kick.

From Kitchen Treaty


  • 2 T Olive oil
  • 1 T White wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 Small clove garlic, minced (about ½ tsp)
  • Pinch Salt & freshly ground pepper
  • 1 lb Your favorite pizza crust dough (I use Trader Joe’s pizza dough when I’m in a hurry - 16 ounces)
  • 1/2 C Ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 tsp Red pepper flakes + more to taste if desired
  • Pinch kosher salt (or other coarse salt)
  • Cracked black pepper
  • 4 oz Goat cheese (chèvre)
  • 2 C Spicy mixed greens or baby arugula
  • 5-6 Radishes
  • Grated Parmesan cheese if desired

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • In a small bowl or jar, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, Dijon mustard, garlic, and salt and pepper. Taste and add additional salt and pepper if you wish.

  • Pull/press/roll pizza dough into an approximately 14-inch circle. Sprinkle a little flour on your baking surface (stone or baking sheet) and carefully transfer the dough. Spoon the ricotta onto the dough and gently spread with a spoon, leaving ½-inch border around the edge of the pizza. Sprinkle the ricotta with the crushed red pepper flakes, a generous pinch of coarse salt, and the freshly ground pepper. Crumble the goat cheese and evenly sprinkle it over the top.

  • Bake for 10 – 12 minutes until the crust is golden brown and cooked through. Meanwhile, add the mixed greens and radishes to a large bowl. Pour the vinaigrette over the top and toss.

  • Remove the pizza from the oven and immediately top with the greens and radishes. Slice and serve. Pass grated Parmesan for topping, if desired.
