Homemade Pizza with Caramelized Onions, Blue Cheese and Thyme

By Jerry James Stone, Planet Green

It’s no secret, we love pizza. In fact, Americans eat 350 slices of pizza every second! But now there’s a reason to eat a lot more. You won’t need any fancy Italian flour or your oven to reach 950 degrees. Heck, you don’t even need a pizza stone. You just need to love pizza.

This recipe was created by Kevin Schuder, Executive Chef at Yield Wine Bar, to pair with a bottle of Valeriano from our featured green wine maker Jacuzzi Family Vineyards. Valeriano is like a big bloody steak (and this is coming from a vegetarian!). It’s bold, structured and tannic with flavors of summer cherries, currants and leather. But it’s also quite balanced, so it pairs nicely with food. But you’re going to need a strong dish like this pizza to stand next to the Valeriano.

The best part of a homemade pizza is that it can be a bit messy. It doesn’t have to be a perfect circle. Mine have ranged from oval-shaped to hexagons. Circles are for quitters!

An interesting pizza recipe.

Pizzas are always tempting, especially ones that are homemade.

I will pass on the blue cheese, have tried it a few times but the flavour is very strong, so will have to substitute another cheese and also use olive oil instead of canola oil, which is GMO.
