Caramelized Onion Pizza

Ok, I'm a sucker for anything with caramelized onions, and this recipe was no exception!

Caramelized Onion Pizza
1 pizza crust
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
2 onions, thinly sliced
2 cans sliced mushrooms (or use fresh)
2 teaspoons honey
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
salt & pepper to taste
2 cups mozzarella cheese
1 teaspoon dried thyme

Saute mushrooms & onions in oil about 10 minutes until tender. Add honey and vinegar and saute an additional 8 minutes until golden brown. Season with salt & pepper.

Sprinkle cheese & thyme on pizza dough, then add onion/mushroom mixture. Bake at 450 for about 15 minutes until cheese is bubbly. Or check out THIS blog post for a great tutorial on grilling pizza. It gives it great flavor and doesn't heat up your oven on these hot summer days. It's my new favorite way to make our weekly pizzas. :)
