Zippy goat’s milk feta elevates the classic combination of beets and chèvre.


  • 4 medium-sized beets scrubbed
  • Flour for dusting
  • ½ recipe Overnight Pizza Dough
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 8 ounces goat’s milk feta crumbled
  • Salt to taste
  • Black pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup spicy microgreens
  • Honey-Balsamic Reduction see notes, to taste


  • Heat oven to 450°F. Wrap beets individually in aluminum foil, and roast 40 minutes, or until fork tender. Cool, peel, and slice into ¼-inch rounds.
  • Flour an overturned baking sheet. Stretch dough to a 13-by-9-inch rectangle, and transfer to baking sheet. Brush dough with 1 tablespoon oil. Lay beet slices evenly over dough. Top with crumbled feta, salt, and pepper.
  • Bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until crust is browned. Transfer to a cutting board. Let cool 5 minutes. Top with microgreens, remaining oil, and a drizzle of Honey- Balsamic Reduction.


If you don’t want to make your own balsamic reduction, feel free to use a bottled version, available at select grocery stores.
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
Cook vinegar and honey in a small pan over medium heat, watching carefully, until liquid reduces by half. Let cool to room temperature.
