Caramelized Onion, Sausage and Manchego Pizza

September 28, 2015


Since the big move, I’ve been looking forward to getting back in the kitchen, and I felt no better way to kick things off, then with a pizza that I used to make for my family.  Growing up, I thought (think.) cooking with manchego and caramelizing onions in red wine, made me so mature and cool (it did/does… right?).  But aside from the personal gain, making this pizza really is a crowd pleaser (just ask my picky husband who even said how much he loved it!).

  1. Heat oil in a large pan over medium-high heat and add onions, sautéing for 10 minutes until soft and golden brown.
  2. Add wine, vinegar and sugar to onions, reduce heat to low and let simmer for 5 minutes until most of the liquid has been absorbed.
  3. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Heat medium skillet over medium-high heat and brown sausage, crumbling with a spatula/spoon/fork.
  5. Remove from heat.
  6. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and pre-cook pizza dough for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Once pizza dough is pre-cooked, remove and top with 3/4 of the cheese, sausage and onions and place back in the oven.
  8. Broil for a couple minutes to create a crispy crust.
  9. Top with remaining manchego and enjoy!
Recipe Notes

* Check the bottom of the crust before removing pizza... you may need to cook it for a few additional minutes on convection to get the air circulating and the bottom of the crust adequately cooked.
