Grilled Pizza with Caramelized Onions, Blue Cheese and Whole Eggs

When I attended the last food blogger event, each attendee was given the Artisan Pizza and Flatbread in 5 Minutes a Day cookbook, and had a demo by Zoe Francois on how to toss pizza. I have been itching to give it a try at home ever since.

We purchased a new grill, and we grill pizza all summer long, so this was a way to put the two together. I have to admit, I am not much of a pizza tosser, my fear prevents my pizza from getting too much height. I have a vision of the pizza crust hanging from the track lighting in the kitchen, but we did a passable job.

This first one was topped with caramelized onions, blue cheese and a whole egg, then we drizzled some balsamic vinegar over the top after we took it off the grill. It was a really unusual, delicious pizza.

Grilled Pizza with Caramelized Onions, Blue Cheese and Whole Egg
Love the whole eggs on the pizza !
1 pizza crust
2 medium onions, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup shredded mozzerella cheese
3 tablespoons blue cheese, crumbled
2 fresh eggs
Good balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper

Prepare pizza crust according to directions. In a large saute pan, melt together butter and olive oil until bubbly. Add onions, and saute over medium heat. Stir occasionally until onions are golden and caramelized.

Place pizza crust on a piece of foil sprayed with non-stick spray. Scatter mozzerella cheese over the top of the crust, and top with the caramelized onions. Add the blue cheese, and carry your pizza close to the grill. Top with the eggs, gently. Bake on the grill for 8-10 minutes just until the eggs are set. Lightly drizzle with balsamic vinegar and season with salt and pepper to taste.
