Caramelized-Onion and Gorgonzola Grilled Pizza
Just reading the recipe name “Caramelized-Onion and Gorgonzola Grilled Pizza” makes me shudder with anticipation.
You might knit your brow when confronted with the concept of grilled pizza, but it’s not only possible, but delicious — and FAST.
If you make it, be warned that grilled pizza is kind of like a stir fry in that you have to have everything ready before you start grilling, and stand there without distraction, tools in hand, because crust will go from charred to burnt in a matter of seconds.
The best — and most time-consuming — part of this recipe is the caramelized onions. Yes, they take at least 20 minutes, but if you’ve never done that, trust that it’s worth every second. Their rich, roasted flavor makes everything better: A charred crust, warm beer, a bad day, everything.
If you want to know more about them, read the July 25, (Wednesday’s) Loaves & Dishes column, about CARAMELIZED-POBLANO-CHILE-AND-ONION DIP.
To pair that smoky loveliness with tangy Gorgonzola is simply brilliant. I’m so glad I thought of it — while reading a strikingly similar (the actual) recipe on www.gourmet.com.
