French Onion Soup Pizza

  • Author: Pate Giltner
  • Prep Time: 10
  • Cook Time: 30
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 1 10 inch pizza 1x


  1. 2 tablespoons butter
  2. 2 cloves garlic
  3. 2 large sweet onions
  4. 6 fresh thyme sprigs, leaves removed
  5. 1 teaspoon sugar 
  6. 1/3 cup bourbon
  7. 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  8. 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  9. 1 pizza dough ball
  10. 1 tablespoon olive oil 
  11. 1 cup of shredded swiss and gruyere cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees and line a baking sheet with wax paper 
  2. Take dough ball out of the fridge and allow to come to room temperature 
  3. Thinly slice the onions and mash and mince the garlic
  4. In a medium high sided pan melt the butter on medium heat 
  5. When the butter is foamy add the onions, garlic, thyme leaves, and saute until onions start to brown 10ish minutes
  6. Add the bourbon, sugar, Worcestershire sauce and keep cooking until onions become a deep brown and are cooked through
  7. Take the warmed dough and stretch out into a circle shape. I find it easiest to hold it up by the edges and rotate until it's reached the ideal thinness 
  8. Flour the wax sheet and the bottom of the pizza dough and place on the baking sheet
  9. Brush olive oil over the dough and spread the onions over the dough
  10. Sprinkle 1/2 of the cheese over the pizza and bake for 15-20 minutes until crust is browned 
  11. Take the pizza out of the oven and sprinkle the rest of the cheese over the pizza while it cools
  12. Sprinkle sea salt over pizza and eat up!
