Easy Eats: Prosciutto and Carmelized Onion Pizza

I’ve never made a homemade pizza before in my life! Nope, not even when I was a kid. So I was max excited to try this recipe out because it looked super easy but sounded so gourmet! It came out really delicious. So much so that my Suggestion Chef was silenced! LOL #winning

I found the recipe here. Try it and let me know how it worked for you. It’s a great combination subtle sweet and salty flavors!

What you’ll need:

1 pizza dough (Trader Joe’s whole wheat or whatever your favorite is)

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

1 whole red onion halved and thinly sliced

1/4 cup brown sugar

Sea salt

1/4 cup asiago or parmesan cheese*

1 cup grated mozzarella or thinly sliced fresh mozzarella*

2-3 oz. prosciutto*

*Purchased from Costco

What to do:

Preheat oven to 500 degrees.

Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet.  Add onions and brown sugar and cook for 5-7 minutes, or until onions are cooked and become sort of caramely.

Roll out pizza dough to desired thickness.

Brush dough with 1 tablespoon olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt and asiago or parmesan cheese.  Top with mozzarella and then caramelized onions.

Bake about 15 minutes in the oven at the lowest rack, until crust is golden brown.  Remove from oven, top with prosciutto, slice, and prepare to be dazzled.
