Carmelized Onion and Apple Pizza

So what happens when you need to feed 3 adults plus one toddler, but your dinner the night before was a "flop" and there isn't enough leftovers! The answer: pizza! It's quick, easy, tasty, and I ALWAYS have the ingredients on hand!  Except I had no meat thawed or veggies except onions...I know Caramelized onions and apples. I think my mom gave me a funny look as I was thinking this out loud...but hey you are a guest and you will eat what I have!

Caramelized Onion and Apple Pizza- created by me!

1 recipe for No Rise Wheat pizza dough
Bbq sauce
2 onions,halved and thinly sliced
1 tbsp olive oil
1 apple, thinly sliced
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese

Place oil in pan, and heat until warm. Add in onions and cook until soft and brown, turning as needed. This does take a while, but the flavor is worth it. I didn't time it, but I'm guessing 20 mins.

Meanwhile you can make your dough!

Once dough is complete, spread into a circle on pizza stone or onto a cookie sheet (ok your pizza can also be square). Place in 400 degree oven for 5-8 mins.  Spread with bbq sauce...I didn't put a measurement on this because I didn't measure it. I just spread it out to our liking. Cover with cheese, onions, and thinly sliced apples. Cook for another 10 mins until golden brown and cheese is melted.
The verdict: It was delicious! Even my mom who didn't think it would be thought it was good! It was a different take that I really enjoyed and not heavy in the least bit!
