Caramelized Onion and Thyme Pizza with Fontina Cheese

Summer means pizza on the grill. Even though it has cooled down a bit I’m not turning on the oven, especially to pizza baking temperatures. All in all, baked on a grill or in an oven, this caramelized onion and thyme pizza with Fontina Cheese is a delicious not-your-usual pizza.

Aromatic earthy thyme accents both the caramelized onions and cheese. Earthy-flavored Italian Alpine Fontina goes really well with caramelized onions. Look for the original cheese, stamped with the DOP stamp and words Val d’Aosta on the label.

My family always made a Thanksgiving side dish called Onions Parmesan–lots of sliced onions sautéed in lots of butter, glazed with sherry vinegar and showered with Parmesan cheese. For this pizza I cooked the onions to the point that they shrink and begin to caramelize, and glazed them with both sherry wine and balsamic vinegar.
