"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Directions:
Divide bread dough in half. Press each portion onto a 12-in. pizza pan coated with cooking spray; build up edges slightly. Prick dough several times with a fork. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter with brown sugar. Add onions; cook for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. Brush dough with oil. Combine the basil, oregano and garlic powder; sprinkle over dough. Bake at 425 for 10 minutes. Arrange onions and tomatoes over crusts; sprinkle with cheeses and olives. Bake 8-10 minutes longer or until golden brown. Yield: 2 pizzas (6 slices each). Serves 12.

Personal Notes:
Try not to over do it when adding the Gorgonzola to this pizza. Even though it's good, the flavor of the cheese tends to overpower the pizza.
