1 Italian style pizza dough
1 table spoon of rapeseed oil or olive oil
250 grams of sliced onion
Pinch of salt
Fresh thyme or oregano
100 grams of bacon
We love pizza we really do and sometimes there is need to shake things up a little, to lay aside the traditional tomato sauce and try something different. This is our version of Pizza Bianco/Bianca an Italian style pizza that, given the name, is white, not red. You can easily make this dish vegetarian just drop the bacon, it tastes delicious in any case. So here goes.
Making Pizza Bianco
Follow the link to the Italian style pizza dough and prepare your dough. Heat the oven onto 275 degrees Celsius, letting the baking tray heat up in the oven. Slice up your onions in fine strips and add them to a pan on low to medium heat I might add and cook for 20-25 minutes until translucent. The onions will become soft and very sweet. When your dough has risen roll it out and lay the onions on top. We fried up the chopped bacon in the oil and juices left from the onion and spread it over the pizza as well. Spread over some Crème fraîche, as much as you want really, and top the pizza with freshly chopped thyme or oregano and crumble or drizzle over fresh or grated mozzarella cheese. You can also grind some pepper and drizzle some oil on top, but I left the oil out, seeing as we added bacon. Transfer the pizza onto the hot baking tray and put the tray on the middle shelf for about 10 minutes.
There are probably many varieties to this pizza and as I said this was our interpretation, if you’ve made another version please let me know in the comment field, with a link or a recipe, so I can try it out too.
