Caramelized Onion Flat Bread Pizza

We like pizza at our house, but we like it different. My husband likes massive amounts of cheese, pepperoni, anchovies and anything else he can find that looks good. I like it simple. Just a touch of cheese, some caramelized onion, maybe a few veggies, and sometimes some pepperoni (I like the less greasy turkey pepperoni – he likes the full fat pork!).

So how do we make it work? We use flat bread and we each put our own pizza together! Here’s the recipe for one of my favorites!

Here’s How to Do it:

Heat the oil in a heavy skillet on medium. The idea is to cook the onions low and slow to bring out all the natural sugars.

Reduce the heat to low, then add the onions, a little salt, and cook, gently stirring on occasion for about 20 minutes.

Add just a pinch of sugar and stir. Cook for about 15 to 20 minutes more. The onions should be golden brown.

Place a pizza stone in the oven and preheat to 450° –

Sprinkle olive oil over the top of the flat bread.

Add the onions, bell pepper, fresh mozzarella and garlic slices.

Using a wooden paddle, slide the flat bread onto the hot stone and cook for about 15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the bottom of the bread is lightly browned and crisp.

Remove (with the paddle) from the oven and let rest about 5 minutes. Cut into quarters – and eat!!
