I adore the Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond. I have her cookbook & have made practically everything from it. That said - I was on her website the other day & came across a recipe for 'Caramelized Onion & Prosciutto Pizza'. I had never heard of such a combination, but the picture of her pizza looked SO good that I just had to give it a try. It calls for fresh mozzarella, prosciutto, & onions caramelized in brown sugar. Such a simple concept, & OH SO GOOD! I made this for dinner tonight & we (kids included) were just smitten with this little gem of a recipe. You can find Ree's original post here. You can also print it on her website as well.
Caramelized Onion & Prosciutto Pizza
- 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)
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 pizza, before baking...
And again after baking!
This is definitely something that I will be making again. Sooooo good! You have got to try this one!
