Sweet Vidalia Onion and Goat Cheese Pizza

  • Yield 4 servings

This Provencal-style pizza featured Vidalia onions that are caramelized until they’re golden and just beginning to fall apart.

Ingredients

1 pound prepared frozen pizza or bread dough, thawed if frozen
2 tablespoons olive oil
6 cups thinly sliced Vidalia onions (about 2 pounds)
1 cup diced plum tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 cup (4-ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
3/4 cup (4-ounces) crumbled goat cheese
1/3 cup pitted Nicoise olives

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450F. Grease a 12-inch pizza pan.
  2. Roll or stretch dough to fit in pan. Bake until crust just begins to brown, about 7 minutes; remove from oven.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil until hot. Add Vidalia onions; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 15 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, garlic, salt and black pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are golden and very tender, about 5 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle mozzarella over pizza crust; top with onion mixture then goat cheese and olives. Bake until heated through, about 10 minutes.
