Pomegranate & Goat’s Cheese Pizza

At My Husband Makes Pies, we relish in challenging traditional pizza toppings and combinations. Today, we venture into a unique blend of toppings with pomegranate and goat’s cheese as the stars of the dish.

Pomegranates, an ancient fruit treasured in many cultures, provide a burst of tartness, which pairs beautifully with the creamy depth of goat’s cheese. Grana padano, with its grainy texture and rich flavour, combined with low moisture mozzarella, provides this pizza with the perfect foundation. The addition of fresh basil adds an aromatic touch, while the balsamic glaze complements everything with its sweet, tangy finish.

The blend of pomegranate arils with three cheeses with a familiar touch of basil gives this pizza a flavour profile that’s both fresh and filling. The subtle sweetness of the pomegranate balances the creaminess of the cheese, creating a pizza that’s both adventurous and satisfying – a true treat for those with a penchant for pushing culinary boundaries.

Servings 2 people


  • Outdoor Pizza Oven, Pizza Steel, or Stone (if using a home oven)
  • 1 Pizza Peel
  • 1 wooden chopping board or peel for prep and serving


  • 1 pizza dough ball
  • Low moisture mozzarella cheese
  • Grana padano cheese
  • Goat's cheese
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Dried oregano
  • Pomegranate arils
  • Balsamic glaze
  • Extra virgin olive oil


  • Prepare Dough: Follow any of our dough recipes. You will need to prepare the dough at least 24 hours ahead of time.
  • Prepare Cheese: Finely grate the grana padano. Tear both the low moisture mozzarella and goat cheese into medium-sized pieces. Set aside.
  • Preheat Oven:
    If using an outdoor pizza like an Ooni pizza oven, aim for a temperature of 450-500°C at the center of your pizza stone. Use an infrared thermometer to ensure accuracy. It should take around 25-30 minutes to reach temperature.
    For a home oven, using a pizza steel or stone, place the stone or steel inside the oven and preheat to the highest temperature for at least 30 minutes.
  • Prepare Base: On a lightly floured surface, stretch out the dough by hand according to the steps outlined in our dough recipe. Once you're happy with the shape of the base, lightly dust your pizza peel and transfer the dough onto the peel.
  • Assemble Pizza: To assemble the pizza, begin by lightly drizzling olive oil over the dough base. Distribute pieces of low moisture mozzarella evenly across the dough, ensuring they're approximately 2 cm in diameter and spaced at least 1.5 cm apart. Follow this with a generous sprinkle of grana padano and dried oregano.
  • Bake Your Pizza:
    If you're using an outdoor pizza oven, launch the pizza into the oven and bake for 60-90 seconds. Keep an eye on the pie and rotate every 10-15 seconds to ensure even cooking and to avoid burning.
    For a home oven with a pizza steel or stone, the bake time should be around 7-10 minutes.
  • Serving: Once the pizza is done, remove it from the oven and place it on a serving board. Add the goat's cheese, followed by basil leaves and pomegranate arils. Drizzle with balsamic glaze and finish with a sprinkle of grana padano. Now it's time savour your delicious homemade pomegranate & goat’s cheese pizza!
