Reviews for French Onion Pizza au Gratin
"This pizza was fantastic. I dont like onions but wanted to try it because my husband loves onions. I used a red onion and the flavor was so sweet and zesty. We also made a homemade pizza crust. Would eat this once a week if I could!!"
"This pizza was truly amazing! (I didn't add the bourbon) I will make this again and again. Perfect for a dinner party app. or family main course!"
"We apologize for omitting the baking temp in this recipe. It will be corrected here soon. The pizza should be baked at 425 degrees for 10-15 minutes.Taste of Home Test Kitchen"
