Grilled Caramelized Onion & Gorgonzola Pizza
Case in point, dinner tonight. Grilled Caramelized Onion & Gorgonzola Pizza. Mmmm....excuse me while I wipe the remaining crumbs from my chin....
(side bar: I was hoping using Gorgonzola cheese meant there would be leftovers (for me,) but sadly, every last piece/crumb/morsel was eaten. Guess I'll be making this one again.)
Grilled Caramelized Onion & Gorgonzola PizzaIngredients:
pizza dough (homemade or store bought)
3 large Vidalia onions, sliced thin
3 Tbsp olive oil, divided
1 Tbsp butter
2 tsp sugar
4oz Gorgonzola, crumbled
2 Tbsp pine nuts
2 Tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped
sea salt & pepper
Heat large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon each of oil and butter. Add in onions and 1/4 tsp each of salt and pepper. Cook stirring constantly until onions begin to soften, 5-7 minutes.
Reduce heat to medium-low, add sugar and cook for approximately 20 minutes, until onions are golden brown in colour. Occasionally stirring.
Meanwhile, prepare grill/BBQ to medium heat.
Stretch pizza dough to 12 x 10-inch rectangle on baking sheet. Brush with 1 tablespoon oil. Place on grill over direct heat, oil side down. Brush top with remaining tablespoon of oil. Grill covered for 2 minutes, or until underside is golden.
Flip dough, sprinkle evenly with onions, cheese, nuts, and rosemary. Cover and grill till underside is golden, approximately 2 minutes. Move pizza to indirect heat, cover and cook for 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
Transfer to cutting board. Slice.
