This pizza was an excellent blend of sweet (onions) and savory (pancetta). We loved this pizza! I modified this recipe by combining the canadian bacon and the pancetta together and adding about a 1/4 cup more fontina. This will definitely be a keeper in our menu rotation!
Pizza dough (either homemade or store bought. I get mine from our local organic grocers Lazy Acres)
1 Tb Olive oil
1 1/2 oz pancetta and canadian bacon combined
4 cups thinly sliced onion
1 Tb minced fresh thyme
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 cup grated fontina cheese
Thyme sprigs for garnish (optional)
Cracked black pepperfor garnish (optional)
Prepare the pizza dough
Heat 1Tb in a large skillet over med-high heat; add pancetta, and saute for two mins. Add onions, salt, thyme and pepper; cook for 25 min or until onions are golden brown, stirring frequently.
Pre-heat oven to 475 degrees.
Brush each prepared crust with olive oil; sprinkle half of the fontina on crust. Followed by the onion mixture topped with the rest of the cheese. Bake for 9 minutes or until the crust is browned. Garnish with thyme and sprinkle with pepper.
