"Made this for our family appetizer night. It was quite the hit! Definitely adding it to our rotation. Made it in our cast iron skillet, very simple to make."

"I had leftover beer bread so I followed the instructions for the onion topping only and did not use the refrig pizza crust. The onion topping was excellent! My husband is not the biggest fan of onions but he dubbed this as a "keeper". Easy to make too."

"This was surprising delicious. All of my guests loved it. I did not have a 10" oven proof skillet so I used a 10" pie pan which worked great. I used a thick crust tube of Pillsbury pizza crust. Some of my guests suggested I try a thin crust next time. Be sure to use a very large onion as it shrinks as it browns."
