Pizza with Caramelized Onions, Gorgonzola and Walnuts

Yield: Makes 2 ea. 10-12 in. pizzas


Ingredients

2 ea. 7-oz. Wood Stone Dough balls
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 oz. butter
2 med. onions, peeled and thinly sliced
Kosher salt
Freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup walnut pieces
4 oz. Gorgonzola
2 Tbsp. Italian parsley, chopped


Preparation

Oven Temperature: 550-580 degrees

  1. Flame Height: 2.6
  2. In a shallow skillet or sheet pan heat the oil with the butter just inside the doorway of the oven. Add the onions, season with salt and pepper and stir. Return to just inside the doorway of the oven and cook for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally until soft and golden brown.
  3. To assemble the pizza, spread the onions evenly over the bottom. Scatter with walnuts and distribute small pieces of the Gorgonzola all around.
  4. Flame Height: 3.6
  5. Transfer the pizza onto the loading peel and land it just inside the doorway. Once the pizza begins to color nicely on the side closest to the flame (about 2-3 minutes), rotate the pizza 180-degrees using the utility peel and move it closer to the flame. Once the side closest to the flame begins to brown, and the top and bottom of the pizza are evenly colored (30 seconds to 1 minute), remove the pizza from the oven using the utility peel. Transfer the pizza to a cooling screen for about 1 minute to prevent steaming and then move it to a cutting board to slice.
  6. Sprinkle with parsley before serving.
