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
- 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)
- Saute on med low for about 15-20 minutes, until tender but not carmelized
- Preheat oven to 425
- Spread out dough on pizza stone, or baking sheet (make sure dough is room temp or it does not stretch well)
- top with a little bit of olive oil, onion, a little more oregano (about 1/2 tbsp) and then cheese.
- Bake for 15 minutes
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.
