How to Caramelize Onions For a Delicious Topping!

The best visual recipe I have found for caramelizing onions is Elise‘s.  My basic method is similar, 3 medium/small onions cut into thin rings, a splash of EVOO, into a pan that was pre-heated to medium heat.  Stir to coat in oil, let sit, stir every 2-5 minutes, lowering the heat if any of the onions crisp or brown too quickly.  After 45 minutes they are light brown, after 60 they are nice and dark.  A note on adding to pizza: make sure the onions are mostly covered in cheese or sauce, any bits that stick up above the pizza will most likely burn.
