Caramelized Onion Flat-bread Pizza

Caramelizing onions takes them to a whole different dimension.  It takes some patience, but, vadalia onions become even sweeter and take on a jam like quality.  Paring them with salty mozzarella and parmesan is a combo that makes you sit back and sigh with pleasure.  Can something that tastes this good be good for you?  Protein and calcium come from the cheese and immune boosting power comes from the onions.  Phytonutrients come from the zucchini.  By using naan as your crust you get addition protein from the egg and milk in the naan.  Eat in moderation and you have every reason to enjoy!

Caramelized Onion Flat-bread Pizza

2 large pieces of naan (homemade or purchased)
4 large vadalia onions
2 tbsp. coconut oil (olive oil can be used)
1 small zucchini
2 cups shredded mozzarella
freshly shredded parmesan
freshly chopped tomato
freshly torn basil and flat leaf parsley

Peal and vertically slice the onions.  Melt the oil in a large frying pan over low heat.  Add the onions and season them with salt.  Allow them to sit on low heat stirring ever minute or so until they become deep golden brown.  This process will take anywhere from twenty to forty minutes.  Set aside and allow to cool.  Clean and slice the zucchini in very thin slices.  You can do this with a mandolin or you can use a vegetable peeler.  Heat the oven to 450 degrees with you baking stone or pan in the oven.  Brush the naan with melted coconut oil or olive oil.  Sprinkle with parmesan.  Cover with mozzarella and place the zucchini slices on them.  Season the zucchini with salt.  Then top with the cooled vadalia onions.  Slide the naan onto you hot baking stone or pan and bake for 10 to 15 minutes.  Remove from oven and add the chopped tomato.  Tare the basil and parsley directly onto the pizza at the last minute.  Cut and eat up!

I didn't give you a naan recipe because the one I use is from The New York Times.  You can get it from their website.  Why use naan and not pizza dough?  You can use pizza dough.  The naan dough is has the addition of egg, yogurt and milk giving it more nutritional value than plain pizza dough.  Also, you will notice from the photo that the heat of the pizza wilts the basil quickly.  That is the reason to leave it to the last minute.

Vadalia onions will be gone soon.  Use them and enjoy them while their are at their best.  Have sun in the kitchen everybody!
