Caramelized Onion Apricot Chicken Pizza

  • 1 pound of your favorite pizza dough (I did a whole wheat crust in my bread machine.  I used 1 1/2 c warm water, 1 T olive oil, 1 t honey, 1 t salt,  3 1/4c whole wheat flour, 1 T yeast on the dough cycle)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups chopped red onions
  • 1/2 cup apricot preserves (you can also use peach)
  • 1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped or shredded cooked chicken
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (I used a cheddar/jack combo)
  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 500˚F.
  2. Heat olive oil in pan and cook onions to caramelize them for about 15 minutes.  Stir frequently.  Turn heat to low, before adding in apricot preserves, vinegar, and mustard.  Stir for 1-2 minutes.  Remove from heat.
  3. Roll pizza dough into desired shape and bake crust only for 5 min. 
  4. Spread shallot apricot mixture evenly over crust. 
  5. Top evenly with chicken. 
  6. Sprinkle shredded cheese and feta cheese evenly on top. 
  7. Reduce heat and bake at 425˚F for 12 – 15 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes. Makes 8 servings. 
I'm not going to lie, I absolutely freaked out over this pizza and am already craving it again!  When making this en masse for dinner club, the caramelized onions and homemade pizza crust are labors of love, but if just doing it for your own family, this wouldn't be a big deal at all.  The combination of the flavors is DIVINE.  I'm not a person who is crazy over feta, but this unique blend of savory and sweet is addicting!
