If you have a glut of onions why not make yourself a German style onion pizza?
Homemade German style pizza.
Regular readers will know me and my old friend went to The Night Of The Prog Festival in Loreley on the Rhine last year. It was three days of good old Prog Rock in a idyllic setting. One afternoon I noticed 'onion pizza' for sale. They cooked them in a wood oven and the main ingredient was (wait for it) ONIONS.
I decided to try a slice. It was very good! There's was on a thick bread crust. So the other day we had a go at making our very own German Onion Pizza. If you want to give it a whirl. Here is what you need:
We cheated an used a shop bought pizza base. That cost 1 Euro. Half a tube of tomato puree (optional), two large onions (chopped or sliced, garlic powder, 200 grammes of diced bacon and 500 grrammes of grated cheese.
Make your onion mix: Mix onion and bacon in a pan and sautee until soft.
Method: Spread the tom puree on the base. Spread small amount of cheese over the puree. Add onion mix then cover with remaining cheese. Cook until brown and the base is crisp.
A really cheap and unusual meal for about four Euro. It fed two of us both!
Try it and let me know if you like it!
When I was on the camping trip in Wessex and County Clare. We would be woke up every morning at four with the birds singing the Dawn Chorus for twenty minutes or so. My friend would sometimes shout form his tent:
"Are you awake Dave?"
I would reply:
"Course I am. I think the birds are putting on a Prog Rock concert for us!"
