Goat Cheese and Tomato Phyllo Pizza Recipe

Goat Cheese and Tomato Phyllo Pizza


4-5 sheets frozen phyllo dough

2 oz of goat cheese

2 tomatoes sliced thinly

4 tbsp of olive oil

1 tbsp rosemary

1 tbsp thyme

pinch of salt and pepper 

How to make Goat Cheese and Tomato Phyllo Pizza

preheat oven to 350


If your phyllo is frozen, take it out of the cardboard box, but not the plastic wrap and set it on the counter to thaw. 

 Once it is thawed it must be worked with quickly to prevent it from drying out, so it is beneficial to have everything you need prepared and ready to assemble before hand.

If the dough is not frozen keep it in the refrigerator until you are ready to use it.

Separate  4-5 sheets of phyllo, carefully unrolling it and then put any unused portion back in it’s plastic wrap and into the freezer. I find that it keeps pretty well, provided that it is well wrapped.

Now on a baking sheet sprinkle 2 of the 4 tablespoons of olive oil.

Place the phyllo gently onto the sheet and try to avoid any wrinkling.

Sprinkle the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil over the top of the dough.

Now gently roll up each side of the dough about an inch inwards until you have an “edge” to your pizza, and you have a nice rectangle.

Crumble the goat cheese over the dough and then lay the slices of tomato in two rows on top of the goat cheese.

Sprinkle the top with the rosemary thyme, salt and pepper.

Bake it in the oven for about 20 minutes or until the dough is a nice golden brown.

serves about 2-4.

    would puff pastry work in place of phyllo?

    you know I haven't tried it, but it sounds good and I don't see why it wouldn't work. If you try it and it is a success let me know :)

    Yum! This sounds good! I bet it would also work well with the herbed goat cheese (garlic/basil)!

    Really yummy, but because I'm a meat eater, I tweaked the recipe quite a bit. I first put a small amount of canned spaghetti sauce on top of the fillo dough as the foundation of my creation to make it a little heartier. Then, I cooked up small peices of bacon and threw in some frozen spinach to cook with the bacon fat. Once that was cooked up and on my dough, I added a little bit of minced garlic, fresh basil, and black olives in as well. I didn't forget the goat cheese or tomatoes(probably one of the most important ingredients to the whole flavor, in my opinion). To top things off I covered the whole pizza with shredded mozarella cheese. I guess it's more of an American twist, but it went over really well with my friends.

    Very nice! I've only ever used phyllo dough for baklava but now I have another use :)
