Caramelized Onion & Proscuitto Pizza

Can I just say YUM!  This was so good and so easy!  I found the crust pre-made for $1.99 at Trader Joe's and it was so good.  Try this!  This recipe comes from my friend Lauren.

Caramelized Onion & Proscuitto Pizza
1 whole pizza crust 
olive oil, for drizzling 
1 whole large red onion, halved and thinly sliced 
2 tbsp brown sugar 
kosher salt to taste
parmesan cheese, grated  
8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese 
4 oz prosciutto, or more or less to taste

Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
Heat 1 tablespoon 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.
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 12 to 15 minutes in the lower half of the oven, or until crust is golden brown. Remove from oven and cut into slices.  Serve immediately.

ready for the oven

here is the pizza good!
