bacon onion cream pizza

This is a hearty, soul-warming pizza.
Did you know that pizza could be soul-warming?
Well, it can.

And it's October so we need something warming anyway, yes?
And this pizza hits. the. spot.
Super rich so do not make if you are counting your calories.
But, if you aren't counting, and want to indulge in something rich but perfectly edible, this is it!


Bacon Onion Cream Pizza
Serves 4 or would be great for appetizer portions!!
Adapted from Smitten Kitchen.
1/2 pound pizza dough, homemade, store-bought, or from your favorite pizza place
2 onions
1/4-1/2 pound good quality smoky bacon, cut into thin lardons
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup cream cheese, at room temp
1 tablespoon flour
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Olive oil

Recipe?  Meh.
Slice your onions really thin and saute in a bit of olive oil until super caramelized.  Remove from pan and set aside.

Saute the lardons in the same pan until nice and crispy.  Set aside.

Combine the sour cream, cream cheese, and flour in a medium bowl and beat with an electric mixer to combine.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Roll out the pizza dough and put on a well oiled, rimmed baking pan.
Spread cream mixture to cover.
Add onions and bacon all over the top.

Bake at 400* on the bottom shelf of your oven for about 12 minutes and enjoy!
