I have been on a specialty pizza kick lately – first with my delicious fig/goat cheese/ arugula pizza I made to honor the most delicious pizza I had at The porch in Schenley ( which I just now realized I have never put on my blog yet! Oh well, will have to make it again 🙂 ) , and now with this delicious creation! We had left over proscuitto from Easter , so I found this recipe on Pinterest and VOILA! , this tasted like we were in a delicious pizza shop 🙂 Yummy!
1 recipe pizza dough
1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 medium yellow onions, thinly sliced
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 Pink Lady Apple, thinly sliced
1/4 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped
1/4 lb. (4 oz.) prosciutto, thinly sliced
1 1/2 cups fresh mozzarella, grated
1/2 cup Gorgonzola, crumbled
1. Prepare pizza dough according to recipe directions.
2. To caramelize the onions, preheat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and stir to coat. Season generously with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until the onions are soft and golden brown, about 25-30 minutes. Reduce the heat as you are cooking if they are beginning to burn.
3. Preheat oven and pizza stone to 450 F. Form pizza crust and lightly brush with olive oil. Top with caramelized onions, sliced pear, prosciutto, mozzarella, and Gorgonzola. Sprinkle with walnuts.
4. Place on pizza stone and bake for 10-12 minutes until the crust is puffed and golden brown and the cheese is bubbling. Remove from the oven and let rest a minute before slicing.
Makes 1 large pizza.
