Caramelized Onion Pizza

Some food is so good that if you don't get a photo the second it comes from the oven... don't get a photo at all. We had this pizza as an appetizer for company a couple weeks ago and everyone just snarfed it down. Even Otto, only 11 months old, dove into his mom's piece.
We had it again tonight. Easy peasy. Here's how to do it:

Caramelize 4 medium onions. I used 3 yellow and 1 red, but you can use whatever. (To caramelize, slice the onions and cook in a tablespoon or two of oil over medium low heat, stirring from time to time, until they get soft and yummy. It takes about half an hour, but you can do other things while they cook.)

Roll out refrigerated pizza dough onto a baking sheet or pizza pan. Spread Trader Joe's Artichoke Antipasto over it (or use pesto or even just a thin coating of garlicy olive oil). Sprinkle on some herbs and, if you wish, a bit of crumbled feta. Top with the onions and bake according to the directions on the pizza dough package. (425 for 16 minutes worked for me) So good!!
