Trader Joe’s whole wheat pizza crust, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?!?!?!
Why, yes, I would like some of the most delicious pizza ever made by me at home in about 20 minutes. Thanks for the help TJ’s!
So a couple of weeks ago I told Steve that I wanted to make french onion grilled cheese sandwiches. I was so excited about this brilliant idea. Obviously no one has ever done that before. Then the next day pretty much every popular food blogger out there stole my idea. Not cool, people. They clearly read my mind, and took my brilliance to claim as there own. Suffice it to say, I didn’t make those sandwiches.
Instead, I made pizza. Delicious, sweet oniony, garlicy pizza that I wanted to scarf down in one sitting. I seriously can’t believe it’s taken me this long to make my own pizza! I already have approximately 500 more pizza ideas that I want to create now. I may have a problem, but once you try it, you will see! You will be hooked, and there is no turning back!
French Onion Pizza
yield 6 servings
- 1 package refrigerated whole wheat pizza dough (I used the Trader Joe’s kind, and would highly recommend it!)
- 2 medium red onions, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 1 tbs + 1 tsp olive oil, divided
- 3-4 tbs beef broth, divided (you could also sub veggie broth to make it vegetarian)
- 1 tbs balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 cup freshly grated part skim mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 cup freshly grated gruyere cheese
- freshly ground pepper
- In a large pan over medium heat, cook onions and garlic in 1 tbs olive oil and 1 tbs beef broth. Season with pepper and cook until onions are browned and caramelized (about 15 minutes).
- Spray a medium cookie sheet with nonstick spray, then roll dough out using a rolling pin to fill out the sheet.
- In a small bowl, whisk together 1 tsp olive oil, 2-3 tbs beef broth, and 1 tbs balsamic vinegar. Brush onto rolled out dough, then top with cooked onions and garlic, and cheeses. Top with extra ground pepper if desired.
