Caramelized Shallots on Homemade Pizza


Caramelized shallots make a great topping for pizza, brie en croute (like Angela’s post minus the apples), pasta, and so many other things.  Its really easy to do:

Slice the shallots into thin  circles starting from the root.  Melt about a tbsn of butter in a pan and add the shallots.  Saute until they become clear.  Add a pinch or two of sugar to the shallots and continue to saute until they become brown and a bit sticky.  That’s it!

As for the pizza, I used dough from Publix.  I used a bit of non-stick spray on the pizza sheet and then dusted the sheet with ground flax seed instead of cornmeal.  I like the crunch it adds to the crust.  I topped the pizza with caramelized shallots, sautéed spinach, and tomatoes, and finally, some Nettle’s Sausage.  The shallots gave it a great smoky taste while the Nettle’s added a bit of spice.

Nettle’s is a brand of sausage made in Lake City.  If you haven’t tried it, you must.  Its available at Ward’s in Gainesville.
