I’m not a pizza person. I’m really not. I have to be in the mood for it. But lately, I have been in the mood for it. And I totally blame these Garlic & Herb pizza crusts I found in my local grocery store. They are simply amazing and make me never want to make my own crust again.
Is that lazy? I call it smart. These come three to a pack and they are individual sized. Ok, maybe individual for someone who likes to eat a whole pizza. I usually eat two pieces and I’m done. But this combo had me eating the entire little pizza by myself.
I first had this goat cheese, onion marmalade, prosciutto crisps combo on a toasted baguette at a little tapas place. The first time I had it I nearly swooned. The gooeyness was dripping down my arm and I did not care. I probably even licked my fingers. Two weeks later I went back because I had to have this little appetizer again.
And I’m not even an onion (or goat cheese) person. Sure I like onion rings but other than that, nope. Now though, I’ll eat caramelized or onion marmalade on pretty much anything.
To say this trio of goodness has been on my long list of ideas of what to make is an understatement. But, of course, I had to put my own twist on it so I put it on pizza. You thought I was going to say I put an egg on it didn’t you?!
Give this combo a try! It’s truly scrumptious.
