Caramelized Onion, Mushroom and Goat Cheese Pizza

I have been reading other food blogs and noticed
all these people who have been making home-made pizza.
It always looks so good but sounds like so much work.
I actually own a wonderful Pampered Chef Stone which gets
little use as I am not a big baker.

Anyway I convinced myself last night that if
all of you can make pizza than I can too!

Here is my attempt at a
Caramelized Onion, Mushroom and Goat Cheese Pizza

First for the crust:
Recipe from All
1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1 teaspoon white sugar
1 cup warm water
2 1/2 cups bread flour
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In a medium bowl,
dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water.
Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
Stir in flour, salt and oil. Beat until smooth.
Let rest for 5 minutes.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface
and pat or roll into a round.
Transfer crust to a lightly greased pizza pan.
Spread with desired toppings and bake
in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown.

1 1/2 yellow onion , sliced and caramelized
Mushrooms, sliced
1 cup Mozzarella Cheese
3/4 cup Goat Cheese
1/2 or more of tomato sauce

I have to say that the pizza turned out pretty fantastic!
You really can't go wrong with caramelized onions and
Goat Cheese!!!

This wonderful pizza is going to be submitted to
Kayln's Weekend Herb Event hosted by
Claudia from Fool for Food.

This looks good to me, but it is an anti-James food.
