Caramelized Onion & Prosciutto Pizza

Hi Readers!  Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!  I'll recap some of our trip on Ethan's 5 Month post tomorrow...but we had a great time visiting my family down in Orange County and celebrating baby's first Thanksgiving!  :)

I thought I would share a little recipe, though I know we're still recovering from our Thanksgiving comas.  If you're looking for something easy, yet still worthy of a meal for date night, check this one out.  It comes from The Pioneer Woman and I'm shocked that I actually enjoyed it since it involves red onion {which I am still not super keep on ever since the pregnancy}.  And while I'm also not a huge meat fan, I do love THINLY sliced prosciutto...the key being thin sliced.  It should be paper thin...and is best enjoyed fresh from the butcher.  


1 whole Pizza Crust
Olive Oil, For Drizzling
1 whole Large Red Onion, Halved And Thinly Sliced
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
Kosher Salt To Taste
Parmesan Cheese, Grated
10 ounces, weight Fresh Mozzarella Cheese, Thinly Sliced
8 slices Prosciutto (more To Taste)


Preheat oven to 500 degrees.

Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet. Add onions and brown sugar and toss/stir for several minutes, or until onions are brown and cooked. Set aside.

Roll out pizza dough to a rectangular shape. Drizzle on olive oil, sprinkle on a little salt, followed by a little Parmesan.

Lay slices of mozzarella evenly over the top of the crust. Arrange caramelized onions over the top of the mozzarella. Randomly lay slices of prosciutto over the onions.

Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the lower half of the oven, or until crust is golden brown. Remove from oven and cut into squares. Serve immediately.

If you've ever had prosciutto, then you know it's salty and delicious!  The caramelized onions actually add a bit of sweet to it, which makes it the perfect combination of salty sweet.

Hope you enjoy!
