Classic Four Cheese Pizza

If you told me 5 years ago that I would have a food blog, and that I would be posting a cheese pizza recipe, I would probably laugh in your face as I scraped the cheese off of my pizza and ate the crust with a scarce bit of sauce left on it. Fast forward to January 28, 2015 and I am in fact running a food blog and posting a recipe for cheese pizza. But not just any old cheese pizza my friends. This pizza has 4 different kinds of cheeses, which all melt perfectly together to create a pizza mecca. It kind of reminds me of Kevin from Home Alone when he orders a cheese pizza all to himself while he gets chauffeured around in a limo to toy stores in New York City. But that is neither here nor there. This is just some damn good pizza. 

Classic Four Cheese Pizza

  • 1 ball pizza dough
  • 1 tbsp. cornmeal
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. mixed Italian seasoning (I love King Arthur)
  • 1/2 cup marinara sauce
  • 4 oz. shredded sharp cheddar
  • 4 oz. shredded mozzarella
  • 4 oz. shredded white cheddar
  • 3 oz. crumbled goat cheese
Bring your dough ball to room temperature and then stretch it out into a large circle or rectangle depending on whether you are baking it on a baking sheet or pizza stone. Sprinkle some corn meal on your baking surface and place the dough down. 

Preheat your oven or grill to 375 degrees F. Drizzle the olive over the dough and sprinkle with the Italian seasoning. Bake or grill for 5 minutes to get the crust a bit crispy before adding the toppings.

After 5 minutes, spread the marinara sauce on the crust with a spoon and sprinkle the cheddars and mozzarella over the crust, ending with the crumbled goat cheese. Place back in the oven or close the grill and cook for another 18-20 minutes if it is in the oven or about 10 minutes on the grill, until the edges are golden brown and the cheeses are melted and bubbly.

Allow to cool for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
