Caramelized Onion & Green Olive Pizzas Recipe

Makes: 2 servings

Active Time:

Total Time:

Ingredients

  • 5 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme, or 1/4 teaspoon dried
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 6 green olives, (see Tips for Two), pitted and chopped
  • 2 6-inch whole-wheat pita breads
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese, or more to taste

Preparation

  1. Position rack in bottom third of oven; preheat to 425°F.
  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, thyme, pepper and sugar. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring often, until the onions are very soft, about 8 minutes. Add olives and remove from the heat.
  3. Place pitas on a baking sheet. Divide the onion mixture between the pitas and spread to the edges; sprinkle with feta. Bake until the cheese is golden, about 10 minutes.

Tips & Notes

  • Tips for Two: Buy just what you need at an olive bar or salad bar. Refrigerate olives for up to 6 months. Sprinkle on salads; toss with chopped fresh herbs and a little extra-virgin olive oil for a quick appetizer; pit, chop and add to your favorite pasta sauce.
