French Onion Dip Pizza


 I had been eating so well last week and saw this amazing-looking French onion dip pizza on Brenda's Canadian Kitchen Blog and have NOT been able to stop thinking about... I decided to make it on Thursday night as a treat for James and I and although it didn't look half as good as Brenda's it sure as heck tasted amazing! Next time I think I would add chicken or something else to give it more substance as it was pretty rich but it was very tasty! Here's the recipe :D
2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for brushing
2 large onions, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped or pressed
Salt and ground black pepper
1 ball of fresh pizza dough, about 16 oz. (I used Pillsbury... Not gonna lie! So quick & easy)
1 cup creme fraiche or sour cream (I used sour cream)
3/4 cup shredded sharp white cheddar cheese
3/4 cup shredded Gruyere cheese
1/2 cup granted Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
1 Tbs. fresh thyme leaves, chopped

Preheat oven to 450 degrees

Place a large skillet over medium heat with about 2 Tbs. of olive oil. Add the onion to the pan and gently cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are a soft and deep golden brown, about 25 minutes.
Awesomely caramelized!
Stir in the garlic the last 8-10 minutes of cooking time.
While the onions are cooking- stretch the pizza dough to the size of your pan. Transfer the dough onto the pan and brush with a little olive oil. Bake until set and very light golden brown, about 15 minutes.
When the onions are ready, season them with salt & pepper, and stir in the creme fraiche or sour cream. Spread the mixture evenly over the pre-baked pizza crust.
Sprinkle the cheese and thyme over the pizza and return it to the oven. Bake until golden brown and bubbly, about 10 minutes.
Serves 4. Enjoy!
