Ingredients

  • 1 medium red onion, halved and sliced
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 prebaked 12-inch thin pizza crust
  • 1 cup crumbled goat cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped Greek olives
  • 1 jar (7-1/2 ounces) roasted sweet red peppers, drained and sliced
  • 1 medium tomato, seeded and chopped
  • 1-1/2 cups cubed fresh mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary or 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed

Directions

In a large skillet, saute onion and sugar in 1 tablespoon oil until softened. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes or until deep golden brown.
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan bring vinegar to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes or until reduced to 1/3 cup.
Place crust on an ungreased 12-in. pizza pan or baking sheet. Combine goat cheese and olives; spread over crust. Top with peppers, tomato, caramelized onion and mozzarella cheese.
Bake at 450° for 8-10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Drizzle with remaining oil; sprinkle with rosemary. Serve with vinegar reduction.
Freeze option: Securely wrap and freeze unbaked pizza. To use, unwrap pizza; bake as directed, increasing time as necessary. Serve as directed.
