Amy's Comments: This pizza is SO GOOD. I love all the items in this: Goat cheese, sundried tomatoes, basil, caramelized onions. Bliss. Easy to make and quite tasty. I was afraid it would be a skimpy serving but with a nice salad it made a perfect easy dinner. We couldn't wait for leftovers! (PS: This one I would cut this up into little bites and serve it as an appetizer at a party even).

INGREDIENTS:

2 teaspoons olive oil
2 cups thinly sliced onion, separated into rings (about 1 onion)
1 (1-pound) Italian cheese-flavored pizza crust (such as Boboli)
1/2 cup bottled pizza sauce (such as Contadina)
1/4 cup chopped drained oil-packed sun-dried tomato halves
2/3 cup (3 ounces) crumbled goat cheese
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 450°.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion; cover and cook for 3 minutes. Uncover and cook for 11 minutes or until golden brown, stirring frequently.
  3. Place the pizza crust on a baking sheet. Combine the sauce and tomatoes. Spread sauce mixture over pizza crust. Top with onion and cheese. Bake at 450° for 10 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Sprinkle with basil. Cut into 6 wedges.
