Caramelized Onion & Prosciutto Pizza


  • 1 whole Pizza Crust raw dough or precooked
  • Olive Oil For Drizzling
  • 1 whole Large Onion Halved And Thinly Sliced
  • ¼ cups Brown Sugar
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • Parmesan Cheese grated or fresh shredded
  • 10 ounces weight Fresh Mozzarella Cheese, Thinly Sliced
  • 8 slices Prosciutto more To Taste


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. If you're using raw pizza dough, precook it according to the package directions for 5 minutes. If you're using cooked dough, skip this step.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons of butter in a skillet. Add the sliced onion. Season with salt & pepper. Cook, on medium-high heat, for about 7-10 minutes or until the onions are lightly browned & caramelized. Stir in ¼ cup brown sugar. Cook on medium heat & cook for another 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Now, over to the pizza crust. Drizzle on olive oil, sprinkle on a little salt, followed by a little Parmesan (grated or shredded).
  • Lay slices of mozzarella evenly over the top of the crust. Arrange caramelized onions over the top of the mozzarella. Lay slices of the prosciutto over the onions. Sprinkle on a little parmesan cheese.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes in the oven, or until the bottom of the crust is golden brown, being careful not to cook for too long. If you're using a precooked crust, cook according to the package instructions. Remove from oven, let cool for 5 minutes, and cut into squares. Serve immediately.
