Crash Test Vegetarian posted a pizza recipe with caramelized onions. It took me back because we used to always put caramelized onions on our pizza, along with toasted walnuts and (at the time) Gorgonzola cheese. Oh, how things have changed! It got me craving our old pizza recipe. I decided to change things up though with other ingredients, but those onions were a must!
1 pkg Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Pizza Dough Mix (see my earlier review)
1 large onion, sliced into strips
2 Tbs olive oil
1/4 to 1/3 C balsamic vinegar
1 tsp sugar
Toppings: sliced mushrooms, torn spinach, tomato slices, Daiya cheese
Prepare the crust according to package instructions (it will need to rise for 20 minutes). To caramelize the onions, heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Add the onions and cook until they tenderize and start to turn brown.
Drizzle balsamic vinegar and sugar on the onions, and combine thoroughly. Cook until brown and shriveled.
Layer your toppings on the prepared pizza crust (Bob’s Red Mill makes (2) 12″ or (1) 16″). Bake for 15-18 minutes. Enjoy!
