Caramelised Onion, Roasted Red Pepper, Roma Tomato, and Sausage Pizza

This dish was prepared for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, for the week 19 theme of carmelisation. These onions took really long to cook but they were oh so worth it. I used the marinara sauce recipe for the sauce.

Summary

  • Cuisine: american
  • Course: entrée
  • Cooking Time: 105 mins

Ingredients

Pizza Dough
1/2 Cup Warm Water (110 degrees)
1/2 Tablespoon White Sugar
1 1/8 teaspoons Active Dry Yeast
1 1/2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
1/2 teaspoon Garlic , minced
1 1/4 Cups Flour
Toppings
Marinara Sauce (can or made)
2 Medium Yellow Onions , sliced
1 Large Red Pepper
2 Roma Tomatoes , seeded and chopped
2 Italian Sausage Links , casing removed
2 Cups Mozzarella

Steps

  1. Make the dough first; stir water, sugar, yeast together until dissolved. Add the olive oil, salt, italian seasoning, and garlic. Stir in the flour until well blended.
  2. Let dough rest 10 minutes and then cover until the rest of the ingredients are ready.
  3. Place the sliced onions into a large skillet and heat over low heat. Occasionally toss the onions as they caramelise over the next hour. They should turn brown and sugary.
  4. Towards the end of cooking the onions, prepare the red pepper; turn on the broiler. Using tongs, place the pepper on the top oven rack until it’s black and charred all over, turning the pepper as you go.
  5. Remove the pepper and place it in a bowl. Cover and let sit for about 10 minutes, until the skin loosens.
  6. Remove the skin from the pepper and slice into strips.
  7. Once the onions are done cooking, transfer them to bowl and add the sausages to the skillet.
  8. Cook the sausage until browned (about 7 minutes).
  9. Place a cast iron skillet in the oven and start to preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  10. VERY lightly coat a pie pan with olive. Pat the dough into the pan using fingers dipped in olive oil.
  11. Top the pizza dough with marinara, cheese, onions, red pepper, and sausage.
  12. Bake the pizza in the pie pan for 10 minutes and then transfer the pizza to the hot cast iron skillet for an additional 5 to 10 minutes until the crust is cooked through and golden brown.

You can use any number of toppings or sauce with this. Also, you can experiment with the dough like using V-8 instead of water. It looks weird but turns out delicious
