Step 1

In small bowl, combine flour and salt.

Step 2

In large bowl, combine yeast, sugar and water; let sit until yeast begins to bubble, about 5-8 minutes. Add oil and flour mixture. Mix with electric mixer on low speed using dough hook until dough forms smooth and elastic ball.

Step 3

Spray inside of large bowl with vegetable pan spray. Form dough into ball, place in bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let rise at room temperature about 1 hour, or until dough has doubled in size.

Step 4

While dough rises, prepare caramelized onions. In medium skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Stir in balsamic vinegar and cook, stirring constantly, until liquid has evaporated, about 30 seconds.

Step 5

Preheat oven to 425°F. Prepare 14” pizza pan with vegetable pan spray.

Step 6

Press down dough to deflate. Dust work surface generously with flour. Roll dough into 14 in. circle. Transfer dough to prepared pan.

Step 7

Bake 12-14 minutes or until crust is lightly browned. Remove pan to cooling grid. Top with cooked onions, sliced tomatoes and goat cheese. Bake an additional 5-7 minutes or until toppings are heated through. Sprinkle with arugula; serve immediately.
