Caramelized Onion and Gorgonzola Pizza

(Adapted from AllRecipes)


  • 1/8 cup butter
  • 2 large sweet onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup dark beer (ale works best, but lager works, too)
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • Perfect Pizza Dough
  • 1 pound Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled (Or mix it with mozzarella!)


  1. In a large saute pan, melt butter over medium heat. Saute onions in butter and beer until the onions are soft and dark brown, and beer has reduced, approximately 25 minutes. 
  2. Stir in sugar, and continue cooking for 1 or 2 more minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.
  4. Put pizza stone or foil-covered cookie sheet into preheated oven and allow to heat up for at least 15 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle a flat surface with cornmeal, shape dough, and lay it out on top of the cornmeal.
  6. Top pizza with caramelized onions and gorgonzola.
  7. Transfer pizza to prepared stone or pan.
  8. Brush edges of crust with olive oil and bake for 8-12 minutes.
