Caramelized Onions

2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter

2 large (3 cups) yellow onions

Chicken or beef broth, as needed


1 (8- to 10-ounce) package (2) naan flatbreads

1/2 cup whole milk ricotta cheese

1/4 cup Browned Butter, melted

2 tablespoons whole grain mustard

4 ounces (1 cup) shredded Gruyère cheese

4 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto


1/4 cup chopped fresh basil

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Thinly slice onions, root to tip. Heat butter in 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until sizzling. Add onions; reduce heat to medium-low. Cook 45-60 minutes or until onions are deep golden brown and caramelized. Stir frequently and monitor heat. Onions should cook and caramelize slowly; if they start to stick to pan, add small amount of chicken or beef broth. Remove from heat; set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Heat oven to 425°F.

  3. STEP 3

    Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Place flatbreads on prepared pan. Spread 1/4 cup ricotta cheese on each flatbread. Drizzle each with 2 tablespoons browned butter and 1 tablespoon mustard. Top evenly with caramelized onions. Sprinkle with 2 ounces (1/2 cup) Gruyère cheese. Place 2 ounces prosciutto onto each flatbread.

  4. STEP 4

    Bake 10-12 minutes or until cheese is melted, prosciutto is crisp and crust is browned.

  5. STEP 5

    Remove from oven; top with chopped basil. Serve immediately.

Tip #1

Use whatever type of crust you like for these pizzas. If it's an uncooked dough, bake before topping.
