  • Yield: 2 (9-inch) pizzas (serving size: 2 slices)

Ingredients

  • Pizza Dough
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 ounces pancetta (Italian-style bacon) or Canadian bacon, chopped
  • 8 cups sliced onion (about 3 large)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, divided
  • 3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded fontina cheese, divided
  • Thyme sprigs (optional)
  • Cracked black pepper (optional)

Preparation

Prepare the Pizza Dough according to directions.

While dough is rising the second time, heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; add pancetta, and sauté for 2 minutes. Add onions, thyme, salt, and white pepper; cook 25 minutes or until onions are browned, stirring frequently.

Preheat oven to 475°.

Brush each prepared pizza crust with 1 1/2 teaspoons oil; top each with half of onion mixture. Sprinkle half of cheese over each pizza. Bake at 475° for 9 minutes or until crusts are crisp. Cut each pizza into 8 wedges. Garnish with thyme sprigs and sprinkle with black pepper, if desired.
