The secret to this... Brown sugar and sausage! Cook up onions as directed (you can use red too) use Brown sugar and after 20 minutes use sausage crumbles! I used Bob Evans breakfast in the roll bc that's what I had. Delicious! Oh, and use butter and vegetable oil to fry the onions. Vegetable oil it's the jet key to not burning onions. Cream cheese was nice on bottom, I did add just a tiny bit of onion dip mix, which I noticed but don't think I needed. Enjoy!
I really liked the mix of carmelised onions, cream cheese and gorgonzola but I did make a few alterations. I used brown sugar instead of white to help the carmelization process, I replaced the oilive oil in the cream cheese with light mayo to give it a tang and creamier flavour, and I used a little thyme in with the mix. I made mine with a thin and crispy style base, it turned out really nicely.
This pizza was just okay for me. I really didn't like the texture of the cream cheese with the warm onions. The flavor was alright. I added some sliced mushrooms and topped it with fresh mozzarella cheese. I don't think I'd make it again but thank you for posting.
