Caramelized Onion and Prosciutto Pizza


It’s gourmet, but still man food, as it includes bacon. Fancy bacon, but bacon nonetheless.  I haven’t tried it, but my taste tester hubby greatly approved of the salty and sweet flavors that meld together on this little beauty.

It was an instant, food coma producing success.

I used my favorite 50/50 dough of both white and wheat flours, just like in the Pizza Tricolore (recipe found there!).  Please, trust me…the flavor of whole wheat in a pizza crust is just immense! Plus, it adds a little fiber to your meal.  You could almost call it healthy.  It’s not.  But it’s as close as you’re gonna get with pizza.

Caramelized Onion and Prosciutto Pizza


1 pizza dough portion

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 large red onion, thinly sliced

sea salt, to taste

freshly grated parmesan

fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced

4-6 slices of prosciutto, torn and spread around


1. Preheat oven to 500*F (260*C). Lightly oil a large baking sheet. Stretch shape pizza crust until it fills the baking sheet.  Sprinkle salt and parmesan lightly over the top.

2. Meanwhile, caramelize the onions by combining brown sugar and red onions in a medium pan over medium-high heat.  Stirring frequently, fry until the onions are soft and browning.

3. Assemble the pizza by arranging the mozzarella, onions and prosciutto over the crust.

4. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the crust is golden brown.
