As the blog-world is quickly realizing, I love food. It should not be surprising that I frequently peruse food sites looking for ideas and generally just ogling good-looking dishes. I finally decided to make a recipe whose picture I saw here. Seemed simple, and cheap enough. It’s heavenly. You gotta try it.
N.B. This recipe IS original to me. The original recipe off the redirected blog differs predominantly from mine in the use of sauce. There are a few extra ingredients they use as well–mine is MUCH more bare-bones. And honestly, I don’t see how sauce would add anything pleasant…why mess with perfection?
BALSAMIC ONIONS, BACON, AND GOAT CHEESE PIZZA
- One pizza dough
- One package uncured bacon
- One large white onion
- Balsamic vinegar
- Approx. 12 ounces goat cheese
- Pam, or similar substance
- Preheat oven to 375*F. Roll out the pizza dough and use Pam, or similar substance, on the pizza pan.
- Get a skillet and start to cook the bacon. Unless you really like crispy bacon, you do not have to cook it all the way through. But you want the fat and grease to start oozing out (who wants greasy pizza?)
- In another skillet or pan, take finely chopped onion and start to cook it. As the onion starts to caramelize, pour some balsamic in the pan. Coat the onion evenly. Cook until onions are soft and the balsamic has evaporated.
- Layer as follows: onions, bacon, goat cheese. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until done.
