This Caramelized Onion & Cream Cheese pizza truly shows my obsession with cheese and onions. This is such a great combination of flavors.
Caramelized onions are really good on a lot of things but top them on a pizza with a lot of cheese and life doesn’t get much better than that.
I love the smell of onions caramelizing and when you add the balsamic vinegar to the end of the process it just adds that nice little touch of extra sweetness to them.
Onions and garlic are pretty much a staple in my house. They make almost everything taste better.
But the caramelizing of onions just bring out the sweetness in them and they top nicely on a lot of things.
