    This is a yummy pizza! I had some fresh roma tomatoes, so sliced those and put them on the pizza, then sprinkled it with garlic powder and pepper. I only used about 1/2 the carmelized onions, and saved the rest to use another time. I also used a block of fresh mozzarella, sliced, in place of the mozzarella balls, so my pizza was probably cheesier. My older daugher enjoyed it. The younger one didn't like the tomatoes. I make a similar pizza, using pesto as a base. This was fresh tasting and easy to make for a nice weeknight dinner.
