  4. Add the chopped raisins, stir, and continue to cook for about 10 more minutes until they are sweet and sticky.

  1. Preheat oven to 475 degrees and lightly grease a large cookie sheet/sheet pan.
  2. Roll or stretch dough out to fit onto the pan, about 12 inches round.
  3. Spread prepared Walnut Pesto on the dough, and then top with the Caramelized Onions.
  4. Next add the apple sliced to the pizza, and dollop with goat’s cheese.
  5. Bake for about 10 minutes until the crust begins to crisp and the apples are golden.
  6. Sprinkle raisins over the warm pizza, and serve!
