Delicious Carmelized Onions and Prosciutto Pizza

So my friend Megan is an amazing cook. She has a blog with some of her recipes on it and I would highly recommend them all! She can see the potential in a recipe she finds and she tweaks it to make it her own. Well last summer she made us delicious pizza and we replicated it on Sunday. We need to do some tweaking of our own but it was so good!

This is where she got the original recipe from.
Here is how I changed the recipe for us:

  • Pizza crust ( use the Food Nanny recipe which always turns out great!)
  • Olive oil
  • 2 medium sweet onions
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 12 ounces fresh mozzarella (get this and the prosciutto in the specialty section of the grocery store if it is in water make sure you drain any extra water)
  • Prosciutto ( I used a whole 3 oz. packet- prosciutto is an Italian cured pork sliced in ultra thin slices)

1. Prepare your pizza dough. While the dough is rising continue with step two.

2. Chop the onions into thin long slices. Cook them in a medium pan with a tablespoon or so of olive oil and the brown sugar. Cook until caramelized stirring frequently. Slice the mozzarella in 1/4 inch slices

3. Roll out the pizza dough. I use my pizza stone and bake at 450 degrees for 15-20 minutes. 
Ready for the oven!
4. Take the pizza out and cover the pizza with the mozzarella, prosciutto, and caramelized onions and bake for another 5-10 minutes until the cheese has completely melted.


Enjoy!
