Gluten-Free Caramelised Onion and Goat's Cheese Pizza


Gluten Free Pizza

I must admit we didn’t actually make the bases this time, we bought ours but there’s a fab recipe over on BBC Good Food if you want to make your own and we will be making ours another time following their recipe.

We did make the passata and caramelised onions though, honest (phew)! Quick and easy, this light meal of gluten-free caramelised onion and goat’s cheese pizza always goes down a treat.

We found the tastiest bases to be from the Co-Op but gluten free bases are available in all good supermarkets.

Easy to make gluten free pizza



  • Gluten free pizza base

For the passata-

  • 1 bulb garlic, chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil (not Extra Virgin)
  • 2 tins chopped/plum tomatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • Sprinkle dried coriander

Caramelised onions-

  • 3 large red onions, sliced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil (not Extra Virgin)
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar


  • 75g buffalo mozzarella
  • 40g soft goat’s cheese
  • Handful peppadews
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil for drizzling
  • (use any toppings you like)


Leave the base to one side. Fry garlic in medium pan with olive oil on a low heat. When it starts to brown, add the tomatoes, sugar and coriander. Cook for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile fry the onions in olive oil on a low heat until they start turning golden brown, add sugar and balsamic for 5 minutes.

Once the passata is cooked, blend and set aside. Pour the passata over the base, covering it.

Add mozzarella and goats cheese, caramelized onions, peppadews, drizzle with olive oil and serve. Enjoy!

    This is one of the best pizzas I have ever tried. I did not realize how good caramelized onions and cheese together. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

    I loved this recipe! I used the left over arugula, goat cheese, pear, and onions for a salad. I topped it with homemade balsamic vinegar dressing. I also added a little bit of white truffle olive oil to the onions to give them some extra flavor!

    Wow this looks delicious, plus goats cheese is good for the metabolism and immunity, as well as being much lower in fat and less inflammatory than cows milk. Making this pizza even more appealing.
    Love the #tastytuesday recipe 🙂

      Absolutely, it’s the main dairy we eat here along with coconut derived dairy. So much more easily digested and more nutritious for you. We also like sheep’s dairy and tend to stay away from cow’s milk. Thanks for your comment!

    Re. your comment on the Galletas de Mantequilla post I linked up: I’m not sure how to “link back”? Do you mean that I should add a comment here? I did add a link at the end of my post to your post and linky party. (I’ve been blogging for a while now…however, there is Tons of stuff I still don’t know how to do!!) Thanks!

    I love caramelised onion but not so keen on goats cheese, but son1 is exactly the opposite so might have to do it as a half and half

      I’m so pleased Ali, I still eat dark chocolate and I did have treats over Christmas but I’ve found sticking to it 80% of the time has made a huge difference to how I feel!

  16. Miss Polkadot

    Caramelized onions are just so ridiculously good and using them as a pizza topping? That’s a great idea! Especially red onions. It’s so odd but I can’t remember the last time I used a ‘plain’ yellow one.

    Lovely looking pizzas. My kids love making their own pizzas to eat, I’ve recently been wondering if I could get away with a cauliflower pizza crust to make it a bit healthier!

  19. Mel

    I very rarely make pizza at home, but your lovely creation is exactly the kind of pizza I go for! I will be pinning it straight away! x
