Caramelized Onion and Sausage Gluten-Free Pizza

Mike and I both loved this scrumptious gluten-free pizza! The addition of carmelized onions to a traditional sausage pizza was fantastic. (Please exuse the skimpy cheese on top - I ran out of shredded cheese as I was cooking and only had ½ cup to use).

Caramelized Onion and Sausage Gluten-Free Pizza
·1 recipe gluten-free pizza dough (I used my GF Calzone Recipe and made pizza instead of a Calzone)
·1 medium onion, chopped
·2 TBS butter
·1½ cups marina/pizza sauce
·1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
·Handful of fresh oregano, chopped
·Corn meal, for dusting
·1 lb. ground pork sausage, browned and drained

Preheat oven and pizza stone to 400˚.

Prepare gluten-free pizza dough and browned pork sausage; set aside.

In a small skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add chopped onions and cook for 15-20 minutes, stirring often, until onions develop a caramel brown color.

Carefully remove the hot pizza stone from the oven and sprinkle the pizza stone with corn meal. Place prepared pizza crust on the pizza stone, top with marinara sauce, caramelized onions, shredded mozzarella cheese, and chopped oregano.

Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
