Roasted Garlic, Caramelized Onion, Zucchini Pizza Recipe

The third pizza created while I was in Indiana was a true collaboration. I suggested creating a pizza using zucchini picked from Uncle Al’s garden. Uncle Al decided we should include roasted garlic. We mashed it up with some olive oil before spreading it on the dough. My cousin Dawn had the brilliant idea to add caramelized onions. I have attempted caramelized onions in the past but haven’t had the patience to let them caramelize. Uncle Al taught me the proper technique and they turned out beautiful. My Aunt Dianna suggested using sliced parmesan cheese. On top of the cheese we added the sliced zucchini and the caramelized onions.

This pizza looked beautiful before we baked it, and smelled mouthwatering when we removed it from the oven. The flavors of this pizza married so well together. The sweetness from the caramelized onions, roasted garlic and fresh zucchini tasted amazing with the rich, sharp flavor of the parmesan cheese. I look forward to using caramelized onions in some of my future pizza creations.
