  • Portion size 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (approx)
  • 2 large sweet onions thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 prepared pizza crust (12 inches/30 cm)
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts
  • 4 teaspoons chopped fresh sage
  • 8 oz gorgonzola cheese crumbled

Method

In large skillet, heat half of the oil over medium-high heat; cook onions, stirring occasionally, for 10 to 12 minutes or until starting to turn golden.

Add sugar and vinegar; cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes or until almost no liquid remains. Remove from heat; stir in salt. Let cool.

Place pizza crust on baking sheet; brush with remaining oil. Spread onions over top; sprinkle with pine nuts, sage and cheese. Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven for 7 to 10 minutes or until cheese is bubbly. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
