  1. For crust: Preheat oven to 425°F Mix flour, baking powder, and salt in medium bowl to blend. Make well in center of dry ingredients. Whisk milk, olive oil, and melted butter in liquid measuring cup to blend. Slowly pour milk mixture into well in dry ingredients, stirring until just blended and smooth. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to 10x13-inch rectangle. Transfer dough to rimmed baking sheet. Re-form dough into 10x13-inch rectangle (dough will shrink when moved). Pierce dough all over with fork. Let dough rest while preparing topping.
  2. For topping: Melt butter with oil in large skillet over high heat. Add onions. Cook until onions are soft and beginning to brown, stirring frequently, about 10 minutes. Add rosemary, sugar, and salt. Season onions to taste with pepper. Reduce heat to medium. Continue to cook until onions are soft and dark brown, stirring frequently, about 20 minutes; cool.
  3. Spread onion mixture evenly over dough. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake until crust is golden and cheese is bubbling, about 20 minutes. Let cool. Cut into squares and serve.

I haven't tried this, so I'm not giving stars.........but reading this recipe and the review makes me wonder if this would be good to put a layer of baby spinach leaves between the dough and the blue cheese. I think I need to try that!!!

Made this for Spring 2008 PAC...only adjustment I made was to use 1/2 wheat flour for the dough. The dough turned out fine (surpise for me cause I'm horrid at those types of doughs) but I felt needed more flavor. I absolutely loved the flavor of the carmelized onions...maybe some fresh rosemary in the dough would add the flavor I was looking for? I only used 4 oz's of bleu cheese because what I had picked up was pretty good quality and very creamy and strong flavored. My kids had mixed reviews with the surprise being that my 9yr old son loved it. My best friend stopped by and tried it as well and she really enjoyed it as well. Therefore the 4 star was the happy medium between us all. Thinking we might try this with feta cheese instead...might make a great lunch bread with a spinach salad lol.
