This pizza was okay. The flavors are very strong so unless you're eating it with something else (which I wasn't) then it may be a little too intense. I may make it again as an appetizer for a party or something but not as a meal for me and the hubby because I don't think I can handle the strong flavors. Read More

This receipe is awesome! I love the contrast between the flavorful gorgonzola, and sweet carmelized onions! Every time I make it, people rave like you wouldn't believe! No offense to the person who mentioned that they would use a Boboli crust, but yuck! And feta cheese, while delicious, would not be good with carmelized onions, at least in my opinion. I would recommend to anyone who hasn't made this yet, stick to the recipe! Read More

Such a wonderful and versatile base recipe to serve as is or customize to your own preferences. Try adding VERY thin sliced pears and coarsley chopped walnuts, or mushrooms and baked garlic to the base recipe for a unique presentation. Definitely a great appetizer for a wine tasting or a backyard bbq! Enjoy!!! Read More

This was a real hit with the family. However the second time I made it it was even better when I reduced the gorgonzola by half and substituted the other half with cheddar and mozzarella. I also brushed the crust with a little olive oil about 5 minutes before taking it out of the oven and kept it under the broiler until the cheese and crust were golden brown. Read More

Spectacular! What a delightful recipe! I used just over a half pound of cheese and still thought it was a little much. I think next time I'll just go with 1/4 lb of cheese. Gargonzola is a strong flavor so I think I can save some calories by decreasing the amount without sacrificing taste. In fact I bet the delicious onion flavor would shine through even more if there was less cheese. Besides decreasing the cheese I followed the recipe exactly. It was quite tasty; both my husband and I loved it! Thanks! Read More

This was a hit at a birthday party I threw for a couple of friends. I had never had Gorgonzola cheese but found that I love it! It's a milder type of blue cheese and it went very well with the caramelized onions. It does take a while to caramelize the onions so make sure you start it in plenty of time to pop in the oven when your guests arrive. Also I made a homemade pizza crust because it's easy and so much better than the refrigerated type. Read More

I have searched long and hard for a great gourmet style pizza. This is a wonderful alternative to the daily grind of classic reds. I am a big fan of white pizza. I’ve tried ye old classic whites which are usually a variation of olio de olive, ricotta, and roasted garlic. I served this pizza to my in-laws and they loved it. We just could not stop eating this great culinary delicacy. Everyone needs to try this. The only thing we did different was use mozzarella in place of the gorgonzola, and didn’t not use onions……… Just kidding. We followed the recipe to the T and it was great. We did add a head of roasted garlic to the crust prior to adding the toppings. Read More

This was good, but not something I could eat a whole lot of. If I could I'd probably give it more like 3 1/2 stars. I was a little pressed for time today so I bought a pizza dough from the local pizzeria. I carmelized the onions which were wonderful, then I put together the pie. I made 1/2 with just the gorgonzola and onions, (and we liked it this way )but we made the other half as another reviewer suggested with the onions, not as much gorgonzola, some mozzerella and cheddar, we liked it A LOT better this way. It was still very flavorful but not as rich. Read More
