I'm always looking for a change up in our pizza routine. One of our favorite toppings lately has been sweet caramelized onions. They add so much flavor! I made a "wit whiz" with a little variation on "Cheez Whiz" but you could certainly use it instead.
Philly Cheesesteak Pizza1 small onion
1-1/2 Tablespoons olive oil
1-1/2 Tablespoons flour
1 cup milk
4 ounces Velveeta
4-6 ounces of Medium Roast beef from the deli, sliced thin and chunked
shredded mozzarella or Italian blend cheese
grilled pizza dough
Drizzle some olive oil in a non stick pan and add your onions. Sprinkle a little salt on. Cook slowly until nice and brown. This is just the beginning color they start to get. As you cook your onions you can a little broth or water to keep it from burning but continue the cooking and browning process.
While you onions are cooking make the cheese sauce. Add olive oil to a saucepan and stir in the flour. Cook for a little bit to remove raw flour taste. Slowly pour in milk a little at a time. Whisking to keep the lumps away. When it is thickened add Velveeta in hunks and stir until melted. It may seem a little thin but it will thicken some as it cools. You could skip the homemade cheese sauce and use warmed up Cheez Whiz if you want it more authentic.
Have your oven and pizza stone preheated to 450 degrees. Place pre-grilled pizza dough on the paddle or flat cookie sheet.
