Mini Goat Cheese Pizzas

I am always on the lookout for something easy and tasty for dinner so when I made a slightly fancier version of this earlier this week and had leftovers I came up with a simple and quick recipe to use them up. I have a whole bunch of Arnold's 100 calorie sandwich thins in my freezer begging to be used so I decided to use this as the base and I was not disappointed. 
The great thing about this is that it is so easy to make, so simple and the flavors all go together together really well. I chose to pair mine with a little marinara on the side, but you could easily drizzle a little balsamic or a evoo over the top.
Using the Arnolds thins makes this a low calorie dinner, and based on what toppings you choose to use, it could be very diet friendly.

Arnolds 100 Calories Sandwich things
Goat Cheese
Caramelized Onions (or raw if you don't have time)
Spinach (you could also use arugula)
Marinara sauce/EVOO/Balsamic Vinegar (based on your personal preference) 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Crumble goat cheese on top of the thins.
3. Put spinach and onions on top and put in the oven
4. Depending on crispy preference cook 7-10 minutes.

This was delicious and it filled me right up. Goat cheese is an acquired taste, but I really like it when I pair it with other things. I made this for my mom (who is a huge goat cheese lover) and she raved about this combo. I did include mushrooms (gross) with hers and she loved that addition...which I left out of mine.

  1. Yes, pizza can be healthy and diet-friendly. I'm one of those people who think pizza delivery is a godsend. Topping pizza with vegetables and healthy cheese is great.
