Gorgonzola, truffle oil & sweet caramelised onion pizza

November 16, 2010

Pizza has always been the one thing I just can’t cook. I’m hopeless at it, the crust is always bready and I get the amounts wrong for the toppings. I don’t know why but I simply cannot cook a good pizza. Simon even bought me a pizza-maker, which improved things a little but I still can’t crack it. So we’ve come to an arrangement – I pick and prepare the toppings and Simon does the rest.

You’ll need

  • One potato thinly sliced and cooked
  • One brown onion very thinly diced
  • White wine
  • Olive oil
  • a big piece of gorgonzola
  • some rocket
  • a tin of tomatoes
  • For the dough, Simon uses a recipe from Maggie Beer which you can find here

To cook

While you wait for the dough to rise, cook the diced onion on a low heat with some olive oil and a big dash of wine. Keep cooking and stirring until it goes soft and sweet (a pinch of sugar might help too).

Once you’ve made the dough and let it rise, roll it out nice and thin. Grab a couple of tomatoes out of the tin and squeeze them over the base. Sprinkle over the onion, then add potatoes and gorgonzola to your heart’s content.

Cook in a hot hot oven or pizza maker until melty and delicious. To finish it off, pour over some truffle oil and add a little rocket.

    This looks fabulous! But then again, I’d probably say that if you put gorgonzola and caramelised onions on a shoe and served it to me :D
