This is one of my favorite fancy Pizza’s. The combination of salt and sweet and something a little unexpected topped off with creamy blue cheese is simply decadent! You can easily change the cheese on here to something you like better, for an example Goat cheese would be fantastic! If you can’t find fig balsamic vinegar (usually in the vinegar isle in the super market) you can use fresh figs and regular balsamic vinegar. Great dish to make with the kids! You may be surprised at their response!
- 1 Large Onion chopped or sliced
- 1 ½ T. sugar
- 1 T. olive oil
- 6 Slices of Prosciutto
- 1 Cup Blue Cheese crumbles
- 1 Cup Fig Balsamic Vinegar
- 1 Pillsbury dough crescent rolls
Preheat your oven per the crescent roll directions.
In a saute pan cook put olive oil and onions to cook on med heat about 5 minutes, add sugar and cook till the onions are brown and caramelized this can take awhile so give it time. You want them nice and golden brown. (If you don’t want to do this part yourself you can pick up some already prepared in your supermarket, usually in the Italian section). At the same time in a small saucepan put add the vinegar and cook on med heat until the vinegar has reduced to ¼ Cup. It will become more syrupy. Then set aside both dishes and let cool. Get your dough and roll it out on a cookie sheet or pizza stone make sure to seal your edges together. Cook your crescent rolls for the recommended time until lightly golden brown. Once the dough is cooked add the cooled onion mixture onto the dough, and disperse the prosciutto by ripping it up and placing over the pieces. Then dollop the blue cheese over the pizza and put back in the oven for an additional seven minutes. When you take it out drizzle the reduced vinegar over the pizza – cut and serve!
