White Pizza

White pizza or pizza bianca as they say in Italy, is pizza without sauce.
In particular children will sometimes ask for no sauce and this is a tasty way to indulge them.
(If you find it to dry, stroke a layer of crème fraîche over the rolled out dough before adding toppings)

Choose the toppings you and your family like. Good and tasty cheese is important.

Here is a favorite of mine:

What you need:

* 1 large pizza dough (make it your self or buy ready made)
* 3 small red onions
* 8 ounces mushrooms (See Conversion Tables here)
* Salt & Pepper
* Thyme
* Parsley
* Mozzarella, shredded or sliced thin
* Gruyere or another stronger tasting cheese of choice.

What you do:

Thinly slice three small red onions. Saute the onions in a skillet over medium-low heat with 2 tablespoons of olive oil for about 30-40 minutes, stirring the mixture every 2-3 minutes. The end result should be deep golden brown, soft, sweet onions.
While the onions are cooking, slice the mushrooms. Take the caramelized onions out of the skillet and add the mushrooms, along with a pinch of salt and pepper and the thyme. There should be some residual oil in the skillet to cook the mushrooms, if not add a tad more. Cook the mushrooms until most of the moisture has evaporated away (about 10 minutes over medium heat).
Have the dough to a large (16-inch) pizza pan that has been coated with non-stick spray and stretch/press it out to the edges of the pan.
Sprinkle the caramelized onions and sautéed mushrooms over dough. Add the shredded mozzarella and other cheese. Bake the pizza in the fully preheated 250° C / 500° F oven for 12-15 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. Sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley after baking.
