Ingredients

1 12-inch (30 cm) preabaked pizza crust
1 1/4 cup (310 mL) Caramelized Onions
1 cup (250 mL) Buttered Sautéed Mushrooms
3 tbsp (45 mL) toasted and chopped walnuts
1 cup (250 mL) Canadian Blue Cheese, crumbled

2 tbsp (30 mL) butter
5 cups (1.25 L) onions, halved horizontally and thinly sliced

3 cups (750 mL) sliced mushrooms
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 tsp (1 mL) dried thyme

Preparation

Preheat oven to 425 °F (220 °C). Place pizza crust on baking sheet or pizza pan. Spread Caramelized onions over crust. Top with Buttered Sautéed mushrooms, walnuts and blue cheese.

Bake in the centre of oven for 8-10 minutes or until cheese is bubbly. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting.

Tips

Caramelized Onions:
Make ahead and cool, cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.

These Caramelized onions are a great way to heighten flavour to many dishes. Besides using on this pizza, serve as a side dish with roasted meats, added to mashed potatoes or use as a filling for omelets or quiche.

Cooking Tips: Vidalia or Spanish onions would work well in this recipe. If the onions are starting to brown too quickly, reduce heat to medium-low.

Butter Sautéed Mushrooms:
Make ahead, cool, cover and refrigerate for up to 8 hours.

To provide a unique flavour use a selection of mushrooms: shiitake, oyster and crimini. These varieties combine well with white button mushrooms and are wonderful as a steak or burger topping.

Cooking Tips: Save time on preparation by purchasing pre-sliced mushrooms and minced garlic in jars or frozen cubes. Use 1 tsp (5 mL) chopped fresh thyme in place of dried.

Turn this recipe into a main meal by tossing with cooked pasta and grated Canadian Parmesan cheese.
