I have had and made a very similar recipe which I like better AND is easier.It uses a Boboli crust,carmelized red onions(I've never needed the sugar),about half the cheese,then is sprinkled with toasted walnuts,drizzled w/olive oil and baked according to the crust instructions.I've never had leftovers!

This pizza was okay. The flavors are very strong, so unless you're eating it with something else (which I wasn't) then it may be a little too intense. I may make it again as an appetizer for a party or something, but not as a meal for me and the hubby because I don't think I can handle the strong flavors.

This receipe is awesome! I love the contrast between the flavorful gorgonzola, and sweet carmelized onions! Every time I make it, people rave like you wouldn't believe! No offense to the person who mentioned that they would use a Boboli crust, but yuck! And feta cheese, while delicious, would not be good with carmelized onions, at least in my opinion. I would recommend to anyone who hasn't made this yet, stick to the recipe!

Such a wonderful and versatile base recipe to serve as is or customize to your own preferences. Try adding VERY thin sliced pears and coarsley chopped walnuts, or mushrooms and baked garlic to the base recipe for a unique presentation. Definitely a great appetizer for a wine tasting or a backyard bbq! Enjoy!!!

This was a real hit with the family. However the second time I made it, it was even better when I reduced the gorgonzola by half and substituted the other half with cheddar and mozzarella. I also brushed the crust with a little olive oil about 5 minutes before taking it out of the oven and kept it under the broiler until the cheese and crust were golden brown.

Spectacular! What a delightful recipe! I used just over a half pound of cheese and still thought it was a little much. I think next time I'll just go with 1/4 lb of cheese. Gargonzola is a strong flavor so I think I can save some calories by decreasing the amount without sacrificing taste. In fact, I bet the delicious onion flavor would shine through even more if there was less cheese. Besides decreasing the cheese, I followed the recipe exactly. It was quite tasty; both my husband and I loved it! Thanks!

This was a hit at a birthday party I threw for a couple of friends. I had never had Gorgonzola cheese but found that I love it! It's a milder type of blue cheese and it went very well with the caramelized onions. It does take a while to caramelize the onions so make sure you start it in plenty of time to pop in the oven when your guests arrive. Also, I made a homemade pizza crust because it's easy and so much better than the refrigerated type.

Wow! This pizza is awesome! I made my own dough, but otherwise stuck to the recipe exactly. The flavors are wonderful together. I'll definetely make this one again. Thanks Jessica!
