Carmelized Onion, Sausage & Pesto Pizza

Happy Wednesday Night!

I can not tell you the last time I made pizza for dinner. I mean once maybe six months ago I tried a cauliflower crust pizza and that was a complete flop. It tasted delicious, but crumbled instantly :(

So here goes nothin..

I decided to try a new version and forget the cauliflower crust this time & opt for premade Publix dough, I mean I did run 6 miles last night so it all evens out right?

Okay first things first, prebake your dough about 8 minutes.

While your pizza dough is baking sautee your onions until they start to carmelize (about 20 minutes on medium heat).
Then add your sausage and sautee until cooked through.

I have to say at this point my house smelled AMAZING! Like an onion, garlic sausage deliciousness!

sausage

Set your onion & sausage mixture aside. Your pizza dough should already be baked and ready to go.

Spread the pesto on the pizza evenly (or unevenly.. you know, this is a its okay-to-color-outside-the-lines-kinda-dish)
Add your sliced tomato.

Honestly, I could stop right here, but alas my carniverous nature comes out.

Next add the onion and sausage mixture & top with the cheeses. NOW for the secret ingredient! SHHHH don’t tell anyone,
TOP with PANKO Breadcrumbs. So I’ve never cooked with these before, I wasn’t sure what all the hype was about, but seriously it makes a huge difference, trust me.  The texture and flavor it adds to the pizza is amazing!

Bake at 400 degrees for about 10 more minutes or until cheese is bubbly. Once it’s cooked perfectly, I broiled the pizza on low for about 2 minutes. And VOILA, OMG get ready for yummyness! You can thank me later.
