Balsamic Mushrooms & Onion, Goat Cheese Pizza

Pizza is basically life.  Goat cheese is also currently one of my favorite things.  So I thought, well let’s do something with these two.. And so this pizza was born!!!  It is pretty fall-ish, and delicious.  I hope you enjoy!

What You’ll Need
For the pizza dough:
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
4 large eggs
1 tbsp evoo
semolina flour, for dusting
For the toppings:
Goat Cheese, I like to buy the spreadable kind
Button Mushrooms, sliced
1/2 sweet onion, sliced lengthwise
1 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
1 cup mozzarella
1 tomato, sliced
1 tsp olive oil
3 cloves garlic
handful of fresh oregano
red pepper flakes, as desired
truffle oil, for drizzling (optional)

How to Do It
For the pizza dough:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Sift flour and salt together in a large bowl, add to stand mixer.  Add in eggs and extra virgin olive oil and mix on medium using the paddle attachment.  Once combined, switch to the dough hook attachment, and continue mixing on medium-high speed until combined into a ball of dough.  Sprinkle semolina flour onto the area you wish to roll the dough out on.  Place dough ball on counter, and roll using a rolling-pin to your desired thickness.  Spray a sheet pan with non-stick spray and place the dough on the pan.  Let sit while preparing the toppings.
For the toppings:
Add olive oil to a smaller saute pan and bring to a medium-high heat.  Put mushrooms and onions into the pan and saute until soft.  Add balsamic and garlic, and cook until the garlic is fragrant.  Smear the goat cheese on the pizza dough and top with the mushroom/onion mixture.  Place tomato slices on top and cover with mozzarella.  Drizzle with truffle oil.  Place in oven for 12-15 minutes.  Remove and add fresh oregano and red pepper flakes prior to serving.
