This Italian Sausage + Caramelize Onion Pizza  is totally worth skipping take out for!
I feel like I’ve been on the biggest pizza kick lately.  All I want to do is make 20 different kinds of pizza and snack of them all day.  I’ve decided I need a “Pizza Week” in my life, I just don’t know when I’ll be debuting it on the blog.  What do you think kids?  Maybe August?!
I completely adore caramelized onions, and Italian sausage sounded like the perfect pairing.  I planned on adding feta cheese to this pie for a little tang, but it didn’t make it on my shopping list so I forgot it.  It happens.  The sweetness from the onions and the bite from the Italian sausage is just SO good.  I was the only one who ate this pizza.  Not because no one else liked it (I got to eat it alone since Mike had band practice), but because it was gone in a 24 hour period while I stood in front of the fridge eating the leftovers the next day.  Oops!  Guess I’ll just have to make another one!

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 sweet onion, peeled, halved, and sliced thin
  • ½ pound Mild Italian Sausage (not links!)
  • ½ recipe Homemade Pizza Dough (or store-bought)
  • ½ cup marinara sauce
  • 1½ cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  1. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion slices; stir to separate the slices into individual pieces. Cook until onions just begin to brown - about 5 minutes stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until onions are tender and caramelized, about 15 to 20 minutes. Remove to a bowl; set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.
  3. Using the same skillet, add Italian sausage and return heat to medium. Cook until sausage is browned and cooked through, about 5 to 8 minutes. Drain; set aside.
  4. Roll out pizza dough to a 14 to 16" round {depending on your baking sheet/pizza stone size}, and place on baking sheet or pizza stone.
  5. Bake dough for 5 mins. Carefully remove crust from oven.
  6. Top with a thin-ish layer of marinara to within 1/2-inch of the dough edge.
  7. Then top with sausage and almost all the onions. Sprinkle pizza evenly with cheese, and the remaining onions.
  8. Bake for another 8 to 12 minutes until cheese is bubbly, crust edges are golden brown and the bottom is crispy. Remove from oven, slice, and eat!
