Vegan Caramelized Onion Thyme Pecan Pizza Recipe
1 large yellow onion
1 large red onion
2 tbsp olive oil
1 cup vegetable broth (from bullion or freshly made)
fresh cracked pepper
Your favorite GF Pizza crust (Carol Fenster, Chebe, or other)
sprigs fresh thyme
Slice and chop your onion so you have consistently sized pieces.
Heat your oil in a cast iron or dutch oven pan to medium-high and add your onions. Mix the onions into the oil until covered and saute until onions are quite translucent (10 minutes or so). Cover, lower heat and let the onions cook on a low heat for about half an hour, stirring a few times. Try not to let the onions brown excessively. Add your broth and let come to a boil before you cover it and lower the heat, letting the onions get increasingly soft. Remove the lid and let the liquid reduce until onions are no longer liquidy. Stir as needed and don’t let any bits burn on the bottom. Season with pepper. Remove from heat and let cool.
Prepare your favorite gluten-free pizza crust (from mix, from scratch, or pre-cooked) and generously spread your onion marmalade on the pizza. Sprinkle with some fresh, chopped thyme (including one or two sprigs in the center of the pizza) and add pecans to taste.
Bake according to your pizza instructions and enjoy!
This deceptively simple recipe made for a very satisfying vegan pizza- if desired add grilled mushroom strips, spinach, or any other veggies that sound good to you!
