This is a sensational variation on traditional pizza. It is creamy, sweet and a little salty. The buttery crunch of the pine nuts make a wonderful taste accent. I like to serve it with mixed baby greens salad and a vinaigrette.—Connie Balbach, Bemidji, Minnesota

To make ahead: This recipe takes minutes to put together when you caramelize the onion the day before.
