Sometimes it seems like you have nothing in your kitchen, despite doing a big grocery shop only a few days ago. Today was one of those days. However, knowing I had a bit of pizza dough in the freezer, I have a belief that just about anything can go on a pizza, and sometimes the kitchen sink or back of the fridge pizzas are the best ones. Simplicity and balance are key, here. Too many competing flavours and your pizza gets too crazy – too much and it’s just wacky.
To me, this pizza is very French. Cheezy, oniony, and delicious. You probably have the majority of these items in your fridge – but if you don’t, you should! These items are leftovers from other recipes I’ve made this week, and the recipe is not limited to the ingredients list below. Use whatever cheese you have, do raw onions instead of caramelized, etc.
This pizza can be made in less than 30 minutes, so it’s perfect for a quick and easy lunch or dinner. Pair it with a fresh salad for a light and meat-free meal, perfect for Meatless Monday!
