Caramelized Red Onions

I use this caramelized red onions recipe as one of our family’s favorite pizza topping (with Gorgonzola cheese). It is just delicious on its own, in a salad, or as a pizza topping.

This recipe yields one large or two small pizzas. Check out my Gorgonzola pizza with caramelized red onions recipe to find out how to make that exceptional pizza at home.
