This week has been busy, busy, busy, with the DH and I continuing to move boxes from our old place to our new place. Not only that, but I celebrated my birthday on Thursday with a trip to a very special, local Oaxacan restaurant that I will be reviewing soon. And, I’m now almost 39 weeks pregnant, so as you can imagine, I’m feeling very pregnant these days. With all this business, you might think I haven’t been cooking. Well… I have made a few dishes (for stocking the freezer) that will be appearing at the Book of Yum this week. But, there was no recipe that called my name for the Menu Swap Sunday post until I made this very easy, really delicious caramelized onion gluten-free pizza. It was born out of cravings and the limited resources in our refrigerator, but tasted great— hope you enjoy!

Two Cheddars Caramelized Onion Pizza Recipe
Main Course [3]  Alternative Grains [4]  Italian [5]  
Ingredients
1 GF pizza Crust (I like Carol Fenster’s or Chebe for convenience)

Pasta marinara sauce
white cheddar, shredded (such as Whole Foods Organic)
yellow cheddar, shredded (such as Tillamook)

1/2 onion, sliced thinly
dash olive oil
lemon pepper

Directions
Preheat oven to 375. Par-bake pizza crust as directed. You can start caramelizing onion if you like- put thin slices of onion on a baking sheet, drizzle with a little olive oil and season with lemon pepper. Bake for at least ten minutes or as long as it takes for onion to get soft and start browning on edges.

Meanwhile, once crust is half-baked, add a thin layer of marinara sauce and sprinkle generously with cheese. Bake until cheese is melty and crust is almost done. Add caramelized onion and bake a few more minutes. Serve and enjoy!
