Gluten Free Caramelized Onion & Prosciutto Pizza


For the Pizza:

One Gluten Free pizza crust (store bought or homemade), par-baked

1/3 – 1/2 cup caramelized onions (depending on the size of the crust)

5-6 thin slices of prosciutto

4 oz fontina cheese, sliced (or fresh mozzarella if prefered)

3-5 leaves fresh basil, chiffonade

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

Extra Virgin olive oil, for drizziling

For the Caramelized Onions:

3 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

2-1/2 pounds onions, thinly sliced

Salt and pepper

3 teaspoons brown sugar


For the Pizza:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees

Cover the par-baked Gluten Free crust with the sliced cheese, and  top the cheese with the onions. Layer the prosciutto over the onions (artfully, if possible!) Sprinkle with Kosher salt and black pepper. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the cheese looks brown on the edges.

Remove the pizza from the oven, top with the basil and drizzle lightly with olive oil.  Enjoy!

For the Caramelized Onions:

Melt the butter with the olive oil over medium-high heat in large skillet. Add the onions and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper, and cook, stirring constantly, until the onions begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the brown sugar and stir thoroughly. Continue to cook, scraping the browned bits off the bottom of the pan frequently, until the onions are soft and golden brown, about 20 minutes.
