This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie is being hosted by Paul of The Boy Can Bake. The recipe he is hosting is Pizza with Onion Confit located on page 159 in Baking With Julia.

I made this recipe last night for dinner and it turned out great. Because I had to wait for Mike to get home with a bottle of red wine, the dough was just on its second rise while I was cooking the onions. I decided not to cool the onion mixture because it would have taken too long and the pizza baked up perfectly fine. I decided to top it with slices of garlic-herb goat cheese and Romano cheese.

I was really surprised by the flavor of the pizza. The onions cooked in red wine had a nice flavor that was reminiscent of a great tomato sauce and the addition of the garlic-herb goat cheese gave it a nice tang. The two paired very well together and Mike actually really liked it. I only ended up making one pizza and freezing half of the dough for another day. Since I only decided to make one pizza, I only made half a recipe of the onion confit. I would definitely make this again and play around with different flavor combinations.

  1. This looks great, I like the idea of using a garlic and herb goats’ cheese…think I might try that!

    It was a good pizza. The goat cheese was such a good compliment to the onions. And I think something I will add to pizza all the time now.

    This one is definitely on my list to make again and play around with. It’s so simple that it’s versatile… if that makes any sense!
