This turned out delicious! I served a salad on the side and it was a great meal! The only problem was that there weren't any leftovers! Well, there were, but after a few glasses of wine, we finished the last pieces right up!

Caramelized Onion and Arugula Goat Cheese Pizza
6 oz. mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 pound pizza dough, either homemade or store bought
2 medium onions, sliced thin
2 Tbsp. butter
1 Tbsp. olive oil
2 oz. arugula
2 oz goat cheese, crumbled
Balsamic reduction, to taste
Preheat your oven to 425F.
In a large skillet over medium low heat, melt butter. Add onions and cook stirring occasionally until the onions are caramelized. This will take about 25-30 minutes. (I did this while waiting for my dough to rise).
Meanwhile, on a flat surface, like your kitchen counter, place some flour to prevent the dough from sticking. Roll out your pizza dough with a rolling pin. Sprinkle cornmeal on the baking sheet. Place the pizza dough onto a baking sheet.
Spread oil all over the dough, as you would sauce. It might not seem like enough, but you don't want too much in one place, so really spread it around.
Add mozzarella, goat cheese, and onions on top of pizza.
Bake the pizza in the preheated oven for 20-22 minutes. Take out and let cool for 5 minutes. Add arugula and drizzle balsamic on top.
