Versatile and easy...use your favorite cheese; parmesan, mozzarella, goat cheese, brie or cambozola are all my favorites.


    For the Onions

    • 2 Tbsp butter
    • 1 Tbsp olive oil
    • 1 large onion, sliced
    • 1 sprig of fresh rosemary, chopped
    • 1-2 Tbsp Balsamic vinegar
    • Salt and Pepper

    To Prepare the Pizza

    • Pizza dough
    • Olive oil
    • Caramelized Onions
    • 8 oz of Cheese of your choice (I used brie and cambozola which is a combination of French soft-ripened triple cream cheese and Italian Gorgonzola)
    • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan


    1. Thaw pizza dough if using frozen.
    2. Melt butter in large skillet and add olive oil. Add the sliced onions and cook over medium low heat until caramelized and brown; approximately 20 minutes. Add the chopped rosemary and continue cooking for 5 additional minutes.
    3. Add the balsamic vinegar to taste and season with salt and pepper.
    4. Prepare pizza dough in a pan; brush with olive oil.
    5. Spread the caramelized onions over the dough then dot the top with cheese.
    6. Sprinkle top with Parmesan cheese.
    7. Bake according to your recipe for dough; typically around 400-425 degrees for approximately 12-15 minutes (be sure to check your recipe or directions on your dough)
    8. Devour

    Recipe Notes

    Cooking time is for both caramelizing the onions and the bake time for the pizza.
