If you haven't caramelized anything yet, this is your time to try. Caramelizing is to cook food with sugar so that is becomes coated with caramel. In this fall themed recipe, pizza is taken on by onions, apples and a cheesy punch with fontina and sharp white cheddar cheese. This recipe has the perfect mixture of crispy, salty and sweet, kind of like the perfect pie. Next pizza Friday make your own pizza rather than ordering out!
Combine 1 cup flour, yeast, sugar and salt into a large bowl. Add water and oil and mix until blended.
Gradually add enough flour until a soft dough ball is formed.
Knead on a floured surface, adding additional flour if needed, until smooth and elastic. With a floured rolling pin, roll out pizza into 14 x 10 inch rectangle. Place onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet and brush with oil and sprinkle with garlic powder.
Place butter and oil into a medium pan set over medium low heat.
Add onions and stir to coat in oil and butter. Arrange in a single layer and cook stirring occasionally until golden brown.
After cooking, sprinkle with salt.
