Caramelized Onion & Prosciutto Pizza

After seeing that Christina at North Carolina Charm made this pizza three nights in a row, I knew it was a must try! Since I am getting ready to leave for Alabama in the morning I knew I wanted to make homemade dinner but needed a quick idea. I had almost all the ingredients for this caramelized onion and prosciutto pizza on hand so after a quick trip to the grocery store on my way home and I was ready!

Caramelized Onion & Prosciutto Pizza

1 whole Pizza Crust
Olive Oil, For Drizzling
1 whole Large Red Onion, Halved And Thinly Sliced
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
Kosher Salt To Taste
Parmesan Cheese, Grated
10 ounces, weight Fresh Mozzarella Cheese, Thinly Sliced
8 slices Prosciutto (more To Taste)

Preheat oven to 500 degrees.

Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet. Add onions and brown sugar and toss/stir for several minutes, or until onions are brown and cooked. Set aside.

Roll out pizza dough to a rectangular shape. Drizzle on olive oil, sprinkle on a little salt, followed by a little Parmesan.

Lay slices of mozzarella evenly over the top of the crust. Arrange caramelized onions over the top of the mozzarella. Randomly lay slices of prosciutto over the onions.

Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the lower half of the oven, or until crust is golden brown. Remove from oven and cut into squares. Serve immediately.

Since I was trying to save time so I would have time to get packed for my trip and make sure the husband had clothes to wear the rest of the week I opted for a pre-made pizza crust, don't judge. Next time I will do a thicker crust and maybe a tad bit less brown sugar but this pizza scored an A++ with Kyle and I, enjoy!
