Sausage, Manchego, and Balsamic Cabernet Onion Pizza

This isn’t your typical pizza. The dough is almost similar a foccacia breadstuff, too it doesn’t take a ruby sauce. I was in a pizza heat as well as came across this flatbread recipe as well as was intrigued by the combination of flavors.

This is an awesome recipe if yous are looking for something different. The caramelized onions with cabernet and balsamic are ridiculous. I could swallow them with a spoon as well as in all probability did.


Prep time: 1 – ane 1/2 hours

Cook time: 35 min.

Serves iv-six

For the dough:

-one parcel active dry out yeast

-i c. warm H2O

-1 tsp. carbohydrate

-1 ane/two c. all purpose flour

-1 c. whole wheat flour

-two tsp. sea common salt

-two T. olive crude

For the pizza:

-ii medium scarlet onions, thinly sliced

-2 T. balsamic vinegar

-one T. sherry vinegar

-one/ii c. cherry-red vino, such equally Cabernet (function something full bodied)

-1 T. dear

-one ane/two lbs. sweet or hot italian sausage, your preference(I used hot in addition to so added fennel seeds together with more than hot pepper flakes because I love that flavor together with residuum)

-ii c. grated manchego cheese

-3 T. finely chopped chives

-ane-2 T. coarse ground cornmeal

Begin past making the dough. Pour package of yeast into a large bowl and add together i cup of warm water as well equally ane tsp. carbohydrate. Let sit down for ten minutes roughly or until a bubbly foam forms at the acme. Then, add together both flours, the ocean table salt, as well as olive fossil oil, too stir to combine amongst a wooden spoon.

Then, accept the dough out of the bowl onto a lightly floured surface, together with knead for half-dozen to seven minutes, until it is throughly combined and develops an elasticity.

Rub the inside of the bowl amongst a tablespoon close to of olive fossil oil, and home the dough ball inwards the bowl, so rub a scrap more olive crude oil on the elevation. Let sit in bowl, covered with a dish towel for one-ane i/two hours to ascent. Dough should double in size after this fourth dimension.

After dough is finished, preheat oven to 450℉.

Sauté onions inwards a large skillet alongside a pair tablespoons of olive petroleum, for nigh ten minutes or until they fix downwardly, soften, as well as train a rich caramel colour. Add wine, balsamic too sherry vinegar, beloved, too a piffling common salt as well as pepper, as well as trim down until the liquid is absorbed, iv-five minutes. Set aside.

Sauté sausage in the same pan, breaking upward into minor pieces alongside a spatula until browned as well as cooked through. I added a tablespoon of fennel seeds as well as together with a teaspoon on ruby pepper flakes; I like a lot of flavor. This pace is optional.

Roll out the dough until it is well-nigh 1/iv inch thick, to match the form of your baking canvass or stone.

Sprinkle the cornmeal onto a big baking skeet or pizza rock, to ensure the dough wont stick too for extra crispiness. I make this to all of my pizzas, it’sec a cracking play a joke on!

Put rolled dough on baking canvass together with drizzle amongst a tablespoon more or less of olive fossil oil  in addition to bake the dough for vi-8 minutes, depending on your oven, until lightly aureate. You don’t desire the dough to fully make during this stride.

Once gilded, withdraw from oven and sprinkle one-half of the grated manchego cheese, followed past the caramelized onion mixture, then the sausage, in addition to last the remaining cheese on top.  Bake for an additional iv to half-dozen minutes, until the cheese is bubbly together with slightly gilt, together with good as gilt edges on the pizza crust.

Remove from oven, as well as sprinkle alongside chopped chives. Serve!

I beloved pizza.
