I came up with this Caramelized Onion Squash Pizza Recipe because I had about a million onions taking up way too much space. I put onion in many many dishes, but usually just half an onion or maybe one, not more. So what to do with so many onions? Well caramelizing them reduces them to almost nothing. It’s just like with Spinach. You can have a fridge full of spinach and only end up with a small pan of cooked spinach. Caramelizing onions takes time but is very much worth the time and effort. They become so sweet and delicious you can hardly tell they are even onions but rather strings of sugar.
In my opinion squash always tastes best when roasted so why not take advantage of the time caramelizing onions by popping your squash in the oven for flavor enhancement? Smart, eh?
Make your own pizza crust or buy one that you like. I chose a store bought one this time because an organic and gluten free pizza crust caught my attention when going shopping. My family has loved this crust ever since and I usually try to keep one in stock always because they keep fresh for quite some time in the fridge.
Enjoy a Pizza that does not taste like store bought but rather like from a gourmet pizzeria!
Serve with salad of your choice. I love arugula and tomato salad with home-made Maple Mustard Dressing.
