Feeling nostalgic for Argentina, well that and I had too many onions in my fridge, I decided to  make a fugazetta pizza (I just needed an excuse to make pizza).  This pizza is found EVERYWHERE in Buenos Aires and it’s super easy to make.  It has 3 main ingredients: dough, onion, and mozzarella.  YUM.

Here’s what you need:

  • pizza dough, I buy Whole Foods’ premade
  • 1 onion, peeled and sliced and then sliced again in half
  • 1 1/2 cups (6 oz) mozzarella cheese
  • dry oregano
  • olive oil
  • pepper and salt
  1. First saute onions with some olive oil, pepper, oregano and a little salt.  I used about 2 good size pinches of oregano (about 1 tbsp)
  2. Saute on med low for about 15-20 minutes, until tender but not carmelized
  3. Preheat oven to 425
  4. Spread out dough on pizza stone, or baking sheet (make sure dough is room temp or it does not stretch well)
  5. top with a little bit of olive oil, onion, a little more oregano (about 1/2 tbsp) and then cheese.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes

Voila, now you’re eating like a true Porteño.

Please let me share with you a picture form my favorite fugazetta in Buenos Aires, it was the cheesiest pizza I had ever seen.  It has a layer of dough on the bottom, then was topped with tons of mozzarella, then another layer of dough, then onions on top and wood grilled.
