Caramelized Onion

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • Salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar


  • 1 can (11 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Thin Crust Pizza Crust
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • 1/4 cup peach preserves
  • 4 slices crisply cooked bacon
  • 1 cup chopped dried figs
  • 1 cup crumbled chèvre (goat) cheese (4 oz)
  • 1 pint (2 cups) fresh figs, stems removed, each cut into 8 pieces


  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Place silicone baking mat on each of 2 cookie sheets or line each with parchment paper.
  • 2
    In 10-inch skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil and the butter over medium-high heat. Add onion; stir to coat. Cook about 5 minutes or until onion begins to soften. Reduce heat to medium; sprinkle with salt and stir in sugar. Cook until onion just begins to brown; stir again. Continue to cook 15 minutes longer. Cool.

    Meanwhile, cut pizza crust dough in 2 pieces. Roll out each as thin as possible. Place each on cookie sheet. Brush crusts with 2 tablespoons olive oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • 4
    Bake 5 to 7 minutes or just until crusts begin to brown but are not completely baked.
  • 5
    Remove crusts from oven. Spread each with 2 tablespoons peach preserves. Layer with caramelized onion, bacon and dried figs. Sprinkle with goat cheese; top with fresh figs.
  • 6
    Bake 5 to 10 minutes longer being careful not to over bake crust. Cut each flatbread into 4 rows by 2 rows.

  • If fresh figs are not in season, the dried figs will be great on their own.
  • For a bolder flavor, try Gorgonzola or blue cheese.
