Caramelized Onion-Sausage Pizza

Pizza, using this easy dough recipe, was on the menu tonight. The pantry was pretty bare—no pesto or tomato sauce. There was one onion left, so I chopped it up and cooked it till soft. Then I baked some Italian sausage, and thinly sliced it. For a unique taste, I topped the pizza with blue cheese and provolone slices. We’ll definitely have this again. Enjoy!

Caramelized Onion-Sausage Pizza
1 onion, chopped
1 Tbsp. butter
1 tsp. olive oil
Salt and pepper
2 links Italian sausage
4 oz. crumbled blue cheese
6 provolone slices

1. Sauté onion in butter and oil over medium-low heat for 20 minutes or until onion is browned and softened.
2. Meanwhile, bake Italian sausage at 400° for 15 minutes or until sausage is cooked through. Allow to cool slightly, and thinly slice.
3. Roll out pizza dough. Spread onion mixture over dough, and top with sausage and cheeses.
4. Bake at 425° for 10 to 15 minutes.
