Servings 4


  • 1 small Vidalia or sweet onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup sliced shallots
  • 1 TB olive oil
  • 1 pizza dough (9-ounce)
  • 2 to 3 TB all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 TB chopped chives
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste


  1. Saute Vidalia onion and shallots in olive oil over medium high heat for 8 to 10 minutes or until softened and beginning to caramelize.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 450˚F. Sprinkle a rimless baking sheet with 1 tablespoon flour. On a lightly floured surface, roll out pizza dough to a 10-inch circle and transfer to prepared baking sheet. Prick dough all over with a fork. Spread dough evenly with ricotta cheese and sprinkle with salt. Top with sauteed onion mixture, red onion and mozzarella cheese.
  3. Bake for 12 to 16 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is bubbly. Garnish with chives and pepper, and slice into 6 to 8 wedges to serve.
