I think I’ve mentioned here before that one of my sisters is a vegetarian…although not by choice. She cannot have meat, but she IS able to have broth. One of her favorite dishes is French onion soup. My mom always makes it for her when she is home.

I thought of K when I saw this recipe. The flavor on this pizza was sooooooo good. It was gloriously oniony, savory, cheesy. And it didn’t include nasty soggy bread. I just used store bought, prebaked pizza crust to save time, but this would be even better on a real, homemade yeast crust.

Oh one more thing–don’t make this for someone special…your breath will be RANK after. Haha!

French Onion Soup Pizza
Adapted from Carrie’s Sweet Life

2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 large yellow onions, thinly sliced
4 cloves garlic, finely minced
Pizza dough (stretch and prebake for 15 minutes if using raw dough)
1 cup sour cream
1 beef bouillon cube
2 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 Tbsp fresh rosemary, minced
3/4 cup shredded Cheddar
3/4 cup shredded Gruyère (provolone would work too)
1/2 cup Parmesan

Preheat oven to 450.

Pour 2 Tbsp EVOO into a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion to the pan and cook gently until onions are soft, about 15 minutes. Add garlic, cook for 10 more minutes.

While the onions are cooking, melt a bouillon cube in 2 Tbsp hot water. Once onions are golden brown, add bouillon, Worcestershire, rosemary and sour cream. Stir sour cream has melted.

Spread onion mixture onto pizza dough. Add cheeses, and bake for 10 minutes.

Let cool for a few minutes before you try to cut into this. Otherwise you’ll burn your mouth! Not that I found that out the hard way or anything….
