French Onion Pizza

French Onion Pizza

This french onion pizza is exactly what we need this December. A simple, no-fuss kind of dinner that could not be more comforting. Once you get the onions on the stovetop, they take about an hour to cook, but the process is completely hands-off (other than some stirring, of course).

The perfect winter pizza. Continue reading “French Onion Pizza”
