Onion Lovers Pizza (By Jamie)


Eat this with those you love and serve Listerine for dessert. This one takes the prize for color: the red onions give it a real splash, and combined with shallots, Vidalias and chopped chives, it’s a sure winner.

Onion Lovers Pizza


Prep time: 15
Cook time: 15
Ready time: 30 min



1 small Vidalia or sweet onion, thinly sliced
1 cup sliced shallots
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 frozen pizza dough, defrosted (9-ounce)
2 to 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 cup diced red onion
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons chopped chives
freshly ground black pepper, to taste


In a medium sauté pan, sauté Vidalia onion and shallots in olive oil over medium high heat for 8 to 10 minutes or until softened and beginning to caramelize.

Meanwhile, preheat oven to 450° F. Sprinkle a rimless baking sheet with 1 tablespoon flour and set aside.

On a lightly floured surface, roll out pizza dough to a 10-inch circle and transfer to prepared baking sheet. Prick dough all over with a fork to help prevent large bubbles from forming during baking. Spread dough evenly with ricotta cheese and sprinkle with salt. Top with sautéed onion mixture, red onion and mozzarella cheese.

Bake for 12 to 16 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is bubbly. Garnish with chives and pepper and slice into 6 to 8 wedges to serve.
