"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
2. Add the sliced onions to a pan with 3 tablespoons of butter. Cook on low for about 30 minutes, adding more butter if necessary. Once onions have started to brown, turn heat to medium and cook until thick and sticky.
3. Roll out pizza dough on a floured surface into a rectangle about 1/4-1/3 inch thick. Transfer to a baking sheet that has been lined with either parchment paper or a Silpat. Brush the dough with 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
4. Cover dough with fig preserves. Crumble almost all of the goat cheese evenly over the dough (reserve approximately 1-2 oz for finishing) and top with the caramelized onions. Bake the flatbread for about 12-15 minutes, until golden brown and cooked through.
5. While flatbread is cooking, crisp pancetta in a skillet. Sprinkle over flatbread 5 min before it comes out of the oven.
6. Crumble the remaining goat cheese over the flatbread. Drizzle generously with the balsamic reduction. Slice and serve!
