Pizza with caramelized onions and mozzarella is a delicious, classic combination. Buffalo mozzarella has a delicious flavor, and some people who are sensitive to cow’s milk products can tolerate goat, sheep, and buffalo milk products better. I use a gluten-free crust here, but you can substitute a whole wheat crust if desired. You’ll only need half the sauce for this pizza, and you can freeze the rest for another time. This easy, delicious dinner should please even the pickiest little eaters.
Pizza with Buffalo Mozzarella and Caramelized Onions
$1.18 per serving
- 1 1/2 cups gluten-free flour
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup water
- 2 tbs olive oil
- 2 eggs
- 8 ounces tomato sauce
- 1/4 tsp oregano
- 1/4 tsp honey
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp red wine vinegar
- Dash of onion powder
- 2 onions thinly sliced
- 1 tbs olive oil
- 4 ounces buffalo mozzarella
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and coat a 9 x 13 glass pan with olive oil.
To make the crust, combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Set aside. Mix the wet ingredients, and then add them to the dry ingredients. Stir until combined and scrape the batter into the glass pan. Bake for 15 minutes and then proceed to the topping directions below.
To make the caramelized onions, cook the sliced onions in a dry skillet over medium-low heat for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then add a tablespoon of olive oil and cook over low heat for another 10-30 minutes, depending on how caramelized you want them.
To make the sauce, stir together the ingredients in a small bowl.
After the crust has baked for 15 minutes, spread 1/2 cup of sauce on it and top with the onions and mozzarella. Return it to the oven to bake for an additional 10-15 minutes. If the mozzarella doesn't start to brown, put the pizza under the broiler for a minute.
