Pizza with goat cheese, caramelized onions and raspberry sauce

Fans of goat cheese are perfectly aware of how well that goes with sweet and sour tasting tangy stuff. Like raspberry jam. I decided to try the combination on pizza, making it perfect by adding caramelized red onions, on the same sweet-and-sour tangy note, and some olives for a salty hint to balance the rest.
The result was really well matched and very fast devoured :).

Last year: Spicy shrimp and wild rice soup (Chinese).

Ingredients (serves 2, maybe more):
  • our cripsy pizza crust
  • 5 medium red onions
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3-4 tablespoons red balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon powdered rosemary
  • 100 g fresh goat cheese
  • 3-4 tablespoons raspberry preserves
  • 1 tablespoon of capers or sliced green olives

Prepare the pizza crust in advance and spread it on a paper-lined tray. Get the onions:

Peel and finely slice them. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan. Add the onions:

Slowly fry them until softened and translucent (20 minutes, stirring once in a while). Add the vinegar, thyme, rosemary, salt and brown sugar.

Increase the heat and stir well for 3-4 minutes until caramelized. Add a bit more vinegar to have more liquid, if necessary. They should look like this:

Preheat oven to 220 degrees C. Spread the onions on the pizza base:

Put in the oven and bake for 25 minutes. Take out and allow to cool. Crumble the goat cheese on top:

Scatter drops of the raspberry preserves all over the pizza, aiming primarily at the cheese. Also add the olives. The pizza is ready, dig in! :)
