Hello Everyone! Lately I have been craving Caramelized onions and then I found a unique recipe using just that. This is my adapted version from halfbakedharvest.com. (Definitely check that blog out for some awesome recipes!)
Bacon and Caramelized Onion Calzons
Bacon and Caramelized Onion Calzones
What you need
1 pizza dough
1 medium sweet onion
1 tsp chopped garlic
1/2 pound of cooked bacon
1/4 cup of BBQ sauce
1 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp of butter
1 cup of cheese I recommend fontina or cheddar
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
To start roughly chop the onion and add to a hot sautée pan. You can use a little olive oil here but I used cooking spray to lower the calories. Sautée until onions are translucent then lower the heat and add garlic, brown sugar and 1 tsp of butter. Cook for about 3 minutes as the onions are caramelizing then add the BBQ sauce. Set to the side.
Divide pizza dough into 4 sections. Roll sections out. Put a heaping spoonful of the onion mixture on each of the dough sections. Add the cheese and crumble the bacon. Fold one side of the dough over and press into the other size making a seam. Take the two ends and tuck them under to keep the filling in place.
I sprayed mine with cooking spray and dusted with garlic powder. You can use olive oil and fresh garlic also.
Cook for 25 minutes or until tops are browned and serve!
Bacon tip* I cook mine on a baking dish in the oven at 375 for about 10 minutes.
