Easy Carmelized Onion and Fig Pizza With Balsamic Glaze

  • 2 large yellow onions, skin removed and thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp dark brown sugar
  • 1 pillsbury refrigerated pizza crust
  • 1/4 cup Fig Butter (Trader Joes)
  • 2 tbsp balsamic glaze
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil + 1 tbsp for garnish
  • 4 oz log of goat cheese (room temperatur)
  • 2 tbsp whole milk
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp dried parlsey
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 3 tbsp freshly chopped basil

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Heat 2 tbsp butter and olive oil over low heat. Once hot add in the sliced onions, balsamic and dark brown sugar. Saute’ for 15-20 minutes, mixing frequently. The onions will get caramelized during this process.

While cooking the onions, unwrap the dough and lay out onto a greased rectangular baking sheet. Brush the top of the dough with olive oil and then sprinkle dried parsely, salt and pepper over the top. Pop into the oven for 4 minutes and remove (we just want to start the cooking process but not fully finish cooking).

In a bowl, add the room temp goat cheese and whole milk. Whisk together until you get a creamy sauce but still thick in texture. Spread the goat cheese sauce onto the dough (leave about 1/4 inch border around the dough edges)

Once the onions are done cooking, add an even layer of the onions to the pizza on top of the goat cheese.

Using a spoon, place dollops of the fig butter on top of the onions, evenly spread out.

Place the pizza back into the oven for about 7 minutes (until crust is crispy golden brown but not burnt)

Once out of the oven, drizzle light layer of olive oil over the top of the pizza.

Then, using a back and forth motion with your wrist, drizzle the balsamic glaze in a diagonal pattern on top of the pizza. Top with freshly chopped basil (or arugula if you prefer…or both!).

Slice with a pizza cutter and serve. Enjoy!
