Caramelized Onion White Pizza

What you need: 

your favorite pizza crust recipe (rosemary is a nice addition)
4 cups sliced onions
1 can white beans- cannellini or garbanzo are good
juice of one lemon
1/4 cup tahini
2-3 cloves crushed fresh garlic
salt to taste (if beans are salted, omit)

What you do: 

Make your favorite pizza crust recipe. Preheat oven to 400. While the dough is rising, start to saute the onions over medium-low heat. If you have a good non-stick pan, no oil is necessary. If not, add a little olive oil. Stirring every 5 minutes, allow onions to brown and soften. This will take a minimum of 30 minutes. Do not cover, as you want the onions to concentrate in flavor. While the onions are reducing, process all remaining ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Press the crust into a pizza pan, prick with a fork a few times to prevent puffing up, and bake (without toppings) for 8-10 minutes until brown. At this point your onions should be browned and reduced. Spread the white sauce onto the crust, and top with the caramelized onions. Slice and devour.

I also added spinach and mushrooms to it.  I didn't have nearly enough onions, but it was plenty good with what I did have.  My pizza crust wasn't big enough to use all the white spread so I've got a little left over.  Any suggestions on what else it could be used for?


Not a traditional tasting pizza, but excellent as a hummus-y type "pizza." A winner! I also added spinach and mushrooms with great results.


Great recipe! I made this for pizza night and it was gone in minutes.

I added sauted portabello mushrooms and spinach to it the second time I made it, which increased the delicious factor
