Supper Club: Caramelized Onion, Asian Pear and Goat Cheese Pizza with Thyme

When we first thought of doing a pizza event, I wanted to do a fig and pear pizza with goat cheese. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find figs, so I ended up going this route, and it just proves that simple recipes can really knock your socks off! This was truly awesome! Thanks again to Michael for making the fantastic pizza dough!

Caramelized Onion, Asian Pear and Goat Cheese Pizza with Thyme
Ashley Covelli

4 yellow onions, sliced thin
salt and pepper
olive oil
a sprinkle of sugar
3 small Asian pears, sliced
2-3 ounces goat cheese, softened
4 sprigs fresh thyme

Heat a skillet over medium heat and coat with oil. Add onions and cook slowly to caramelize. Season with salt and pepper and a sprinkle of sugar after 10 minutes. Add half of the thyme leaves. Keep stirring until the onions get a nice rich caramel color.

Prepare pizza dough and spread onions on top, drizzling more olive oil on top. Bake for 5 minutes and then add pears on top. Bake until the crust is golden. Add chunks of softened goat cheese and sprinkle with more fresh thyme. Add a final drizzle of olive oil and enjoy!
