Caramelized Onion, Olive and Gorgonzola Pizza

Here's a great tasting meatless pizza for your Lenten Fridays. Actually, we make this pizza quite frequently, throughout the year. (Admittedly, it's so good it hardly qualifies as a sacrifice.)

2 - 3 T butter
3-4 yellow onions
1 T sugar
15 Kalamata olives, cut in half
10 oz Gorgonzola, crumbled
1 ball pizza dough
Sea Salt

Pre-heat oven to 450° F.
Peel, then slice onions thinly, separating rings.
Melt butter over med-hi heat in a frying pan, let the butter begin to brown before adding onions.
Sauté onions, for 5-7 minutes stirring as they brown
Sprinkle sugar over onions and continue to brown until nicely caramelized and soft.

Press pizza dough out to cover an oiled pizza pan.
Spread caramelized onions over dough.
Sprinkle Gorgonzola over onions.
Sprinkle Kalamata olives evenly over pizza.

Bake for 15 minutes, until cheese begins to brown.
Sprinkle with sea salt before cutting to serve. Enjoy!
