Onions. They are one of those vegetables that I don’t eat all that often. I don’t put them in salads. I don’t put them in stir-fry. I actually try to avoid them. Caramelized onions on the other hand, I will eat. They are like candy. Soft, sugary… sweet.
And what what goes with caramelized onions? Mushrooms of course. And what goes with mushrooms? Goat cheese. And what could all this possibly be served on? Pizza.
And so my Caramelized Onion, Mushroom & Four Peppercorn Goat Cheese Pizza is born.
Caramelized Onion, Mushroom & Four Peppercorn Goat Cheese Pizza
1 packaged PC Multigrain Thin Pizza Crust
1 large yellow onion
1 tbsp butter
sprinkle of salt
1 tsp sugar
splash of balsamic vinegar
2 medium portabella mushrooms, sliced thick
1oz four peppercorn goat cheese
1. Slice onions thinly. Add onions with butter to a heavy bottom pot over medium heat. Spread onions out evenly. Stir occasionally. After about 10 minutes sprinkle onions with salt and sugar. If the pan starts to look dry and the onions start to burn add a bit of water. Continue to cook 10 minutes, stirring more frequently as onions start to caramelize. Stir in balsamic vinegar to deglaze the pot. Add sliced mushrooms to the pot, and cook another 10 minutes or until mushrooms are cooked.
2. Spread the onion & mushroom mixture over pizza crust. Bake in 425 degree oven for 5 minutes.
3. Remove from oven and sprinkle with goat cheese. Return to oven and bake until goat cheese is warm.
4. Serve immediately.
What’s your favourite type of pizza? What topping do you always have to have?
Mine is obviously mushrooms.
