• 1 portion – pizza dough
• 1 tbsp – Olive oil
• 3 medium-sized sweet yellow onions, sliced fairly thin
• 1 tsp – salt
• 1 tsp – Sugar
• 1/2 cup – pitted olives, like Kalamata
• 4 Cloves – garlic, thinly sliced, then dunked into 1 tbsp – Olive oil (this keeps them from burning)
• salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a skillet.
  2. Add the onions and saute for about five minutes on medium-high heat.
  3. Add salt and continue to saute until the onions begin to turn golden-brown.
  4. Add the sugar, turn the heat down to medium, and continue to saute until the onions are deeply golden and very sweet.
  5. This should take about 20 more minutes.
  6. Turn off the heat and set it aside.
  7. Roll out the pizza dough, about 11 inches long and 8 inches wide.
  8. Sprinkle cornmeal on a cookie sheet and place the dough on it.
  9. Spread the caramelized onions in a thin layer on top of the pizza dough, leaving a 1-inch border on all sides.
  10. Sprinkle the garlic and olives on top, and use the remaining oil to brush the edges of the tart.
  11. Sprinkle on some salt and pepper to taste.
  12. Bake in a preheated 500-degree oven for 11-12 minutes or until the sides are golden and the tart comes easily off the cookie sheet with a spatula.
  13. Cut and serve hot.
