Pesto, Chicken, Caramelized Onion & Fennel Pizza [GF]comments (0) August 16th, 2012 in Gallery
The fifth and final pizza in our Five Pies in Five Days series features caramelized sweet onions and fennel resting like a golden crown atop grilled chicken and fresh mozzarella. If a recipe were a sentence, caramelized onions and fennel are a sweet-savory punctuation of flavor worth every slow-simmered minute. Departing from traditional tomato based pizza sauce we take advantage of peak season basil to create a pesto sauce to form the base for everything else. Roasted red peppers bring a splash of color and mild smoky-sweetness so well paired with the onion and fennel the trio is sure to show up again soon in Focaccia, or as soup garnishes and sandwich toppers.
