  • 1 ball of pizza dough
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil, spread over dough
  • 3/4 cup grated mozzarella cheese 2 ounces/60 grams
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated parmesan or romano cheese, divided
  • 1/2 cup caramelized onions 4 & 1/2 ounces/122 grams


  1. Preheat oven to 550 degrees F, with pizza stone set on middle rack while the oven preheats.

  2. Toss or roll the dough into a flat, round shape, approximately 10-inches in diameter.

  3. Spread the mozzarella and 1 tablespoon of the parmesan or romano cheese over the center of the pizza dough, leaving uncovered a ring of approximately 1-inch around the edge.

  4. Add the caramelized onions, spreading them over the cheese. Sprinkle the remaining tablespoon of parmesan or romano cheese.

  5. Slide the pizza onto the stone in the oven, either directly or using a pizza tray/cookie sheet. Bake for approximately 8 minutes until the crust is browning and the center bubbles. If you notice that bubbles develop on the ring of crust without cheese and onions, you should press them down or puncture them with a fork or knife. This keeps them from burning before the pizza is fully baked.

  6. Once you remove the pizza from the oven, slice it into wedges for serving.
