Caramelizing onions

Pros: my apartment smells like sweet, savory, buttery France
Cons: my apartment is now hot as hell, and I haven't even preheated the oven for the pizza yet.

You will need:
  • A decent non-stick pan
  • a silicone spatula or wooden spoon
  • a tablespoon of butter
  • 2 onions
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup (you could use brown sugar or honey, if you like)
  • a pinch of salt
1. Slice the onions as thinly as you can
2. Melt the butter in the pan on low heat
3. Add the onions and stir in the salt and maple syrup
4. Cover and cook on low for 7-9 minutes. Crank it up to low-medium, uncover, and cook for another 5ish minutes.
5. Layer it on pizza dough with garlic and olive oil, tomato slices, and feta.

Conclusion: SUCCESS! pizza was fabulous.
