Cheese and Walnut Pizza

INGREDIENTS

3 large red onions, sliced thin
1 cup Gorgonzola de dulche (or gorgonzola or blue cheese), sweet and soft
1/ 2 cup walnut, slightly chopped
1 pizza crust
3 tablespoons canola oil
Salt and pepper

INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1: Preheat oven to 475F

Step 2: Roll out dough.

Step 3: Sauté onions in canola over medium heat for about 40 minutes, or until caramelized.

Step 4: Place on crust, top with crumbled cheese and nuts.

Step 5: Bake about 15 to 20 minutes or until done.

Note: Reheat Pizza
Heat up leftover pizza in a non-stick skillet on top of the stove. Set heat to med-low and heat till warm. This keeps the crust crispy. No soggy micro pizza. I saw this on the cooking channel and it really works.
