Today's Round Up: Twist on an Original

We love making homemade pizza and after watching a Jacques Pepin cooking show last weekend (in which he made a fancy pizza) we had a hankering for something different than the usual pizza we make. I perused the internet for quite some time looking for a pizza recipe that would match the taste I was craving. And wouldn't you know it, Pioneer Woman {of course} had the *perfect* recipe. The only thing I changed was to add some fresh basil leaves. I made this with her pizza dough recipe as well. Get ready for a party in your mouth!

PW's Caramelized Onion and Prosciutto Pizza

* 1 whole pizza crust
* olive oil
* 1 whole large red onion, halved and thinly sliced
* 1/4 Cup brown sugar
* Kosher salt, to taste
* Parmesan cheese, grated
* 10 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced
* 8-10 slices proscuitto
* fresh basil leaves (optional)

Directions

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. Add basil leaves. 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. Enjoy!!If you want to join in on your own blog, simply link back to this blog and mention that you are partaking in Thursday's Recipe Rodeo.

LOOKS DELISH! I am not into meat really, but for some reason prosciutto doesn't count. I did something similar the other day with pineapples. so good, and just in time for friday!
