Pizza with Onions & Black Olives
6 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil, divided
4 medium Yellow Onions, thinly sliced
to taste Salt & Black Pepper
1 recipe Pizza Dough (see note)
1 ¾ cups Mozzarella Cheese, shredded
32 Black Olives, pitted & halved longways
3 tbsp. Fresh Parsley, chopped
Using half the oil in a large saute pan over low heat, cook onions until translucent and beginning to brown (about 15 minutes) stirring as needed. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Top prepared pizza dough with onions spreading evenly and leaving the edge uncovered. Sprinkle the cheese evenly over the onions and top with the sliced olives. Bake in a 475 degree pre-heated oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is bubbling. Let rest a few minutes before cutting.
Note: See my “Homemade Pizza” recipe on my blog (www.cabanaboycooks.blogspot.com) for the pizza dough process.
Note: If you don't like black olives, then use your favorite ones. I like a mixture of the black with some green olives too.
