We have always been big pizza fans. Any kind, really–thick crust, thin crust, meat-lovers, vegetarian, it really doesn’t matter. It’s all good.
This weekend I tried something new. We bought some flat-bread-type pizza crust (I can’t remember the brand but it’s rectangular and it’s in the bread aisle with the flatbread and thin buns). Then, while perusing a favorite cookbook, I came across a recipe for home-made pizza dough. You’re right, I didn’t make it. But they did have lots of suggestions for toppings, and one of the “winter” suggestions was caramelized onions, gorgonzola, and rosemary. Well, that sounded right up my alley.
So I caramelized some onions (that’s really the only part that took any time at all), put some pre-made pizza sauce on the crust, topped it with the onions, a few crumbles of gorgonzola, a little rosemary, and just a touch of parmesan, and popped it in the oven.
It was good. Really quite good. As easy as it gets, as well, which is a big bonus in my mind.
Maybe I’ll try some of the other pizza topping suggestions in that book–seems like it’s hard to lose with pizza.
