Caramelized Onion and Mushroom Pizza

This is an interesting pizza that does not have tomato sauce. Try it, it's very good!


Pizza dough:
1 cup water
1 tbsp olive oil
2 1/2 cups bread flour
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp active dry yeast

2 yellow onions, sliced thin
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 pack mushrooms, sliced
5 Tbsp goat cheese
1/2 young mozzarella cheese in water
1 Tbsp oregano
1 tbs basil
1 tbs thyme
salt, pepper

I make my pizza dough in my bread maker, but you can also do it by hand. This recipe is quite good, I would not change it. It measures makes dough for two 12" thin crust pizzas. I usually make 2 different pizzas, so the toppings are enough just for one pizza pie.

Grease the pizza pan with oil or margarine. Stretch the pizza dough into the pizza pan (use 1/2 of the dough, if you used my recipe). Cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes.

Heat oil in a pan. Add minced garlic and sliced mushrooms. Cook while stirring occasionally. Mushrooms will release water, but continue cooking until all of that water is evaporated (about 15 minutes). They will also reduce in size.

Add salt and pepper to taste and stir. When the mushroom are done, transfer them into a bowl and set aside.

Add more oil in the frying pan and add onions. Sprinkle some salt and stir. Cook for about 20 minutes until all the onions are brown in color.

Spread goat cheese onto the pizza dough first.

Then evenly distribute mozzarella slices.

Do the same with onions and mushrooms.

Sprinkle oregano, basil and thyme over the pizza.

Bake at 500F for 15 minutes, until it is almost done.

Then take the pizza out, sprinkle grated parmesan cheese and place back in the oven for a couple of more minutes.
