Goat cheese, beet and jalapeño flatbread

This is my healthier at-home version of our beloved Bo-Beau Kitchen flatbread: goat cheese, beet and jalapeño. AKA three things you wouldn’t really think to put together.

But, it’s so right.

Flatbread  1 of 1

The component that helps bring everything together is a sweet onion-tomato spread. To make this, all I did was heat one large diced sweet onion on the stovetop, liberally seasoned with olive oil, salt and pepper. After about 5 minutes, I stirred in three tablespoons of tomato paste, 2 tablespoons of sugar, and removed from the heat.

Next, I went to work on the dough. I’d love to say I made it from scratch, but this came from a package and it was delightful. You can make yours from scratch if you’re fancy like that -this is the best pizza dough recipe and I also love the Bob’s Red Mill mixes- but if you need a little head start, I’m right there with ya.

Next, spread your onion sauce on top plus a soft crumbled cheese of choice. (I went with a container of goat cheese)

Top with sliced steamed beets,

hard shredded cheese (used Manchego), and sliced fresh jalapeños.

Bake according to your dough’s specifications and top with crushed red pepper.

Recreating this recipe was a little more challenging because my menu was clouded by the extreme foodgasm experience. The good news is that it tastes remarkably similar to our favorite restaurant version, albeit a little healthier. It’s easy, delightful, and especially fantastic with a glass of red ;)

  1. Yum!!! This reminds me of a recipe I just saw The High Priestess of Excitement Giada create…it was a goat cheese and fig crostini and looked like a bit of heaven. :)

  2. Goat cheese is amazing! This flatbread looks so delicious!

  3. This looks amazing! Goats cheese was a fab choice – i’ll definitely have to try it out!

  4. That TJ’s goat cheese is my favorite!!

    This pizza looks amazing. I love all sorts of different combos. New Haven, CT kind of opened my eyes to pizza (or apizza as they call it) and introduced me to so many good kinds. I love Bar’s mashed potato pizza! Omg so good!

  5. This looks like what my dreams are made of! However my boyfriend hates beets. Do you have any ideas on a good replacement for beets?

  6. I love goatcheese in pizza – it’s the best!!

  7. i love beets but have never thought to pair them with jalapenos. yum!

  8. Yum! This looks delicious and reminds me that I need to figure out what is on tap for dinner tonight.

  9. I’ve never thought of putting beets on a pizza before! Sounds strange, but I’m intrigued.

  10. I love making my own flatbreads. Unfortunately, goat cheese is not one cheese I love to eat. It has a very strong taste. I could substitute feta though!

  11. OMG this looks AMAZING! xoC

  12. Great grating pic! :) You’re right, wouldn’t have thought of putting those topping together, but it does look pretty great!

  13. This is super creative and sounds deeeelicious!! I have been wanting to try cooking with beets, so this would be the perfect recipe to do it with.

  14. Don’t think I’ve ever had beets on pizza/flatbread…I’m intrigued!!

  15. I love arugala on a pizza. Add some prosciutto and maybe a little ricotta and I’m set.

  16. Christina says:

    Wow, I thought the beets were pepperoni haha…that looks delicious and so much healthier than pepperoni ;)

  17. Goat cheese and beets are like PB and J in my mind – the best combo. But I LOVE spicy so I welcome the jalapenos in this – so creative!

  18. Do you deliver??? ;)

  19. This sounds delicious! I love the idea of adding exactly the toppings you want to a pizza (I’m looking at you, beets). But I’ve still been too intimidated to try making the dough from scratch.

  20. As if you could ever go wrong with carbs and cheese… ;) Yes puhhlease!

  21. I love this! I’m not a big fan of beets but I don’t hate them either.

  22. Ooh this looks awesome! My favorite pizza topping combo is pineapple and green bell pepper. I love it!

  23. Jennifer Tu says:

    This looks delicious! My personal fav is grilled peaches, arugula, garlic, caramelized onions with prosciutto & goat cheese. It is truly DIVINE!!!

  24. Hey Gina! The recipe u linked to for the pizza crust says it calls for bread flour? Is that a certain type of flour or can you use whole wheat, white, etc.? Thank you so much :) I would love to make this tonight!!!

    • Fitnessista says:

      i’ve used brown rice flour and it worked well (a little chewy, but still good). spelt would be a good option too!

  25. This pizza recipe is screaming my name! It will be served at my house this weekend. Thanks!
