Nothing bad ever comes from a pot full of caramelized onions.
I have such a hard time wrapping my brain around the fact that there are people out there that don’t like onions. I mean, I don’t plan on unwrapping an onion and eating it like an apple anytime soon, but onions add such an amazing complex layer of flavor to so many different foods. And onions can be taken into so many explosive and delectable culinary directions.
I’m a big fan of onions.
The “sauce” for this pizza is actually not a sauce all. It is the soft, sweet, gooey result of onions simmering in bacon grease and a touch of honey for about half an hour. After all that time, you are left with pile of deeply brown, sweet and soft-flavored onions (the photo below is a “before” shot, by the time the onions were done, the winter sun had already set). The sugary onions pair perfectly with the salty bacon and rich, decadent goat cheese. This pizza was so incredibly right that Babyface and I devoured the whole thing in one sitting. I promise you, this one will be in frequent rotation in our household.
