Vidalia Onion & Gorgonzola Pizza

  • Yield: 3 9-inch pizzas


  • 6 large Vidalia or other sweet onions, peeled (about 6 lbs.)
  • 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp. salt

  • 1 pkg. (6.5 oz.) pizza crust mix
  • 1/4 c. mascarpone cheese, softened
  • 1/2 c. gorgonzola cheese, crumbled

  • Spread about 1 tablespoon il Giardino® Mascarpone cheese over each prepared pizza crust. Top each crust with 1/3 of the caramelized onions. Sprinkle about 2 tablespoons Gorgonzola cheese and 1 tablespoon pecans over each pizza.
  • Bake at 500° F for 8 minutes, or until crusts are crisp and cheese melts.
