Ingredients

  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon bourbon, optional
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/4 pound thickly sliced deli roast beef, coarsely chopped
  • 1 prebaked 12-inch pizza crust
  • 3/4 cup French onion dip
  • 3/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, chopped
  • 3/4 cup shredded Gruyere or Swiss cheese

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, saute onion with brown sugar in 1 tablespoon oil until softened. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes or until deep golden brown. Stir in vinegar and garlic. Remove from the heat; add bourbon if desired. Continue cooking until liquid is nearly evaporated.
  2. In another skillet, saute mushrooms in remaining oil until tender; add roast beef and heat through.
  3. Place crust on a pizza pan; spread with French onion dip. Layer with mozzarella cheese, onion mixture, red pepper, mushroom mixture and Gruyere cheese.
  4. Bake at 425° for 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with rosemary.
