this recipe was a huge success at a birthday party I hosted...and is great on a standard size pizza too...or panini! the carmelized onions add a sweetness that pairs perfectly with prosciutto. these bite-sized apps go quickly every time
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 large onions, sliced (about 4 cups - this may seem like a lot, but necessary for moisture)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon sugar
1 ball pizza dough (about 12 to 16 ounces)
3 ounces goat cheese, crumbled (about 1/2 cup)
3 ounces prosciutto (about 5 large slices), cut into 2 by 2-inch pieces
Parsley for garnish
2 1/2-inch round cookie cutter or wine glass rim
Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F.
Roll out the pizza dough into a 1/4-inch-thick round. Using the cookie cutter, cut out 24 dough circles. Arrange the circles on a large heavy baking sheet. Place a small spoonful of the caramelized onions on each dough circle. Top with a small amount of goat cheese. Bake until golden and bubbly, about 10 minutes.
While still hot, top each pizzette with a piece of prosciutto. Arrange on a serving platter and garnish with sprigs of parsley or rosemary. Serve immediately.Prep Time: 30 minutes. Cook Time: 1 hour 10 minutes Yield: 24 mini pizzettes
