Caramelized Onion and Chicken Sausage Pizza

tonight, i poured myself a glass of sauvingnon blanc and channeled my inner sandra lee. that's right, this pizza is semi-homemade yet full of flavor.

although i didn't technically make anything from scratch, it still tasted amazing and only required a bit of assembly. i couldn't resist this garlic & herb pizza dough at trader joe's yesterday.

after a quick roll out of the dough, i took some pre-made pizza sauce and stirred in some spices, roasted garlic, and parmesan cheese.  i added some browned chicken sausage and caramelized onions on the sauce. then, the whole thing was topped off with some italian cheese and baked till brown and bubbly.

the end result was specality gourmet pizza worthy. seriously good stuff here folks. seriously.

Caramelized Onion and Chicken Sausage Pizza

1 tbs extra virgin olive oil
1 large onion, thinly sliced
2 garlic chicken sausage links
1 prepared pizza dough
10 oz pizza sauce
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp dried parsley
1/8 tsp onion power
1 tbs grated parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp roasted minced garlic
shredded italian cheese

preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

in a large skillet, warm oil over medium heat. add sliced onions and season with salt and pepper. cook for 2 minutes, stirring often then reduce heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally for 15 minutes or until caramelized.

in another skillet, add thinly sliced chicken sausage and cook until browned on both sides.

stir oregano, parsley, onion powder, parmesan, and garlic into pizza sauce. roll out pizza dough and place on parchment lined baking sheet. spoon sauce onto dough and spread around evenly. layer caramelized onions and chicken sausage over sauce and sprinkle liberally with cheese.

bake for 15-20 minutes until brown and bubbly. remove from oven and let sit 5 minutes. slice and enjoy.
