Description

A scrumptious sweet-savory pizza with caramelized onions and salt prosciutto.

Ingredients

  • 1 whole Pizza Crust
  • Olive Oil, For Drizzling
  • 1 whole Large Red Onion, Halved And Thinly Sliced
  • ¼ cups Brown Sugar
  • Kosher Salt To Taste
  • Parmesan Cheese, Grated
  • 10 ounces, weight Fresh Mozzarella Cheese, Thinly Sliced
  • 8 slices Prosciutto (more To Taste)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 500 degrees.

Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet. Add onions and brown sugar and toss/stir for several minutes, or until onions are brown and cooked. Set aside.

Roll out pizza dough to a rectangular shape. Drizzle on olive oil, sprinkle on a little salt, followed by a little Parmesan.

Lay slices of mozzarella evenly over the top of the crust. Arrange caramelized onions over the top of the mozzarella. Randomly lay slices of prosciutto over the onions.

Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the lower half of the oven, or until crust is golden brown. Remove from oven and cut into squares. Serve immediately.

My husband and I have loved a version of this pizza at our house – our version includes some fresh arugula thrown on top after the pizza comes out of the oven. The crisp, peppery greens are a perfect contrast to the sweet onions and gooey cheese!

I just finished eating this! It was great. I didn’t put salt on the crust as I had put sea salt in the dough. I also added a few calamata olives. Thought it was perfect. thanks for sharing the recipe.

Made this pizza with my husband on Saturday night! Absolutely fantastic. We then used the extra dough to make individual bbq chicken pizza’s with caramelized on Monday night and it was fantastic. Thanks Ree for the great recipe.

I made this & the grownups at my house loved it. Next time I think I will cut the Prosciutto into smaller bite size pieces. Other than that, YUMMO!

I’ve been making this about once a week lately, it’s a pantry meal at my house. I use store bought dough, most are pretty good. I use half a red or yellow onion, cut a little smaller, and omit the sugar. I put the dough on parchment so it is easy to lift onto a large sheet pan. I put the sheet pan in a cold oven then crank the heat to 475. I lightly brush the dough with oil. Tonight I used one of the little frozen basil packs mixed with a tiny amount of oil. I have used rosemary too. I sprinkle the cooled cooked onions on the dough. Then I use 8 oz of mozz, (no parm) and lay it out around the dough. I tear a 3oz package of prosciutto into smaller pieces and remove any big veins of fat so it doesn’t make the pizza greasy. I like adding the prosciutto last so it gets kind of crispy. I cook for 12-14 minutes as per my taste. I love, love, love this pizza!
