prosciutto and caramelized onion pizza

So just to confirm we’re all on the same page here – cheese, sweet caramelized onions, and then prosciutto.

Prosciutto and Caramelized Onion Pizza

Adapted from Pioneer Woman

(serves 4)

What You’ll Need:

1 pizza dough (I used TJ’s Whole Wheat – $1.29)

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil ($.08 at $.08/tablespoon)

1 whole red onion halved and thinly sliced ($.59 at $.59/lb)

1/4 cup brown sugar ($.10 at $.75/lb)

sea salt

1/4 cup asiago or parmesan cheese ($.31 at $4.99/lb)

1 cup grated mozzarella or thinly sliced fresh mozzarella ($1.24 at $4.99/lb)

2-3 oz. prosciutto (about $2.00 for half a 5 oz. package at $3.99)


Preheat oven to 500 degrees.

Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet. Add onions and brown sugar and cook for 5-7 minutes, or until onions are cooked and become sort of caramely.

Roll out pizza dough to desired thickness.

Brush dough with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt and asiago or parmesan cheese. Top with mozzarella and then caramelized onions.

Bake about 15 minutes in the oven at the lowest rack, until crust is golden brown. Remove from oven, top with prosciutto, slice, and prepare to be dazzled.

TOTAL: $5.61 or $1.40 per serving. Serve with a side salad and you’re probably around $1.75 per person.
