  • 1 ball (600 g) pizza dough

  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) cracked pepper
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) prepared caramelized onions

  2. Brush dough with olive oil; sprinkle with thyme leaves and pepper.

Tip: Prepared caramelized onions can be found in the condiment aisle of well-stocked grocery stores. Or to cook them yourself, grab a small skillet and set over low heat, slowly cook a sliced Vidalia onion in butter with a pinch of salt and sugar for 25 to 30 minutes or until caramelized.
