Alsatian Pizza with Bacon and Caramelized Onions

Alsatian Pizza with Bacon and Caramelized Onions
source, Epicurious, Fred Thompson

This recipe is for topping only.  You can make your own thin crust pizza dough, or purchase it fresh from your local pizza store like our friend did! 

3 Tbls. butter
2 yellow onions, thinly sliced
1 Tbls. firmly packed light brown sugar
3 slices thick-cut applewood smoked bacon, cut into strips
1/4 lb. Gruyere, thinly sliced
2 Tbls. chopped fresh thyme

Cook onions with butter and sugar on medium-low heat, stirring, until onions are golden brown, about 20 minutes.  At the same time, in a second saute pan over medium heat, cook the bacon, stirring, until crisp, about 8 minutes.  Drain on paper towels.

On partially grilled pizza crust, top each with the onions, bacon and cheese.  Season with salt and pepper.  Return to grill and cook until each crust is firm and browned at the edges and cheese has melted a bit, 4-6 minutes.  Slice with pizza wheel and enjoy.  I loved this so much and think it would be great for a luncheon.
