Cry Me an Onion: Onion Pizzas!!!

April 15th, 2009

For my Cry Me an Onion Contest, I have chosen two more recipes.  E, J’s sister, suggested Fugazetta, an Argentine white pizza.  Libby gave me the recipe for a Basil and Artichoke Pesto with Caramelized Onion Pizza.  So, I had a bit of a pizza night!  I used the no-knead Nook & Pantry pizza dough, which was enough dough for two pizzas.  The pizza dough was a great choice… it was a bit sticky so make sure to use a lot of flour when handling the dough.  I do not have a pizza stone anymore due to a small oven… I used a cookie sheet.

Verdict: Yummy!  I love the onions and cheese.  In Argentina, the pizzas sometimes have olives on them so I added some.
Cry Factor: sobbing (2 onions)

(from E, Sylvia, and a little googling)

1 pizza dough, shaped into a circle
1 1/2 cup mozzarella
1 teaspoon oregano, dried
2 onions sliced
2 tablespoon olive oil
5 green olives

1. Spread the olive oil on the pizza.
2. Sprinkle with the onions and oregano, top with the mozzarella.
3. Place the green olives around the outside of the pizza.
4. Bake at 500 for 10-12 minutes until the crust is browned.

Verdict: Wow!  Artichoke Pesto, where have you been my whole life?

    sometimes we do pizza parties, tasting which 2 toppings pairing the best. My favorite always goes to cheese and onion. Next time will make this ‘threesome’; your pesto sounds too good, can’t miss!

    A pizza with a pesto sauce and caramelized onions sounds really good!
