Pizza with Caramelized Onions and Roasted Peppers
Logan has been learning a song called “I am a Pizza” at school, so we decided we would make pizza together for dinner. It has been a few years since I’ve made a pizza at home. We didn’t have time to make the dough, so we bought it from our favorite pizza place, Dion’s, and made the rest ourselves. Logan helped roll out the dough, grated most of the cheese all by himself, and helped me put the toppings on. We just used some things we had on hand for the toppings. I wish we had a can of artichoke hearts to add to it, but we didn’t and I didn’t want to make a special trip to the store. We had lots of fun making the pizza and we sang “I am a Pizza” while we made it, but when it came time to for dinner he didn’t want to eat it. I’m not surprised about that though! It turned out pretty good, but even though the dough was from our favorite place, the crust didn’t come out the same.

- 1/2 c jarred roasted red bell peppers, drained sliced

Slice the red onions thin. Saute them in olive oil until they are tender and slightly browned. Roll dough out to fit your pan. Spread tomato past on crust for the sauce and season with dried basil, oregano and garlic powder. Top with cheese. Add basil, red bell peppers, and red onion.
