Red Onion and Bleu Cheese Pizza

Frozen pizza is by far the one of the easiest & quickest dinners for us. There are just some nights you want to take the night off. Well believe it or not, making your own pizza takes the same amount of time as baking a frozen one. You can find pre-made pizza dough in the refrigerated deli section of your grocery store. It's a great way to use up some loose ends in your fridge. You could scatter small chunks of chicken breast, frozen veggies, whatever you like. I've done a BBQ chicken pizza (use bbq sauce instead of marinara), a hard-boiled egg pizza, and a Eggplant & Olive puff pastry pizza. This time I went for a caramelized red onion and bleu cheese pizza. It was fantastic! The crust was perfect and I love those big bubbles in the edges of the pizza. Don't be scared of pizza dough, it's really fun to play with!

Red Onion and Bleu Cheese Pizza
pre-made pizza dough
Half red onion, sliced
Blue cheese crumbles, around 1 cup

1 Preheat oven to its highest temperature, mine is 500 degrees. Take pizza dough out and place on the counter while you prepare remaining ingredients. (hint: pizza dough is always best used a few days after its made)
2 Heat a medium skillet with olive oil and saute red onion until caramelized and wilted, about 10 minutes. You can sprinkle some brown sugar to help the process going.
3 Roll out the dough by gently stretching or using a rolling pin to the desired thickness and size. I kind of go for the odd-sized shape to make it look more homemade. Place on large baking sheet and brush some olive oil and season with a little salt.
3 Scatter the red onions evenly around the pizza, then with the bleu cheese crumbles.
4 Place in oven and bake for 12 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Enjoy!

I love finding pizza recipes that incorporate ingredients that I wouldn't normally think of. Thanks so much for sharing this. Recently I made Mexican Pizza and it was really delicious. It had beans, beef and all the delicious taco toppings you can imagine!
