Author note: If you’re not a fan of gorgonzola, an acceptable substitute would be goat cheese, or your favorite variety of soft cheese.

gorgonzola (or a favorite soft cheese)

  1. Heat the oven according to the dough instructions.
  2. In a medium-sized skillet add the olive oil. Evenly distribute the onions and salt in two layers. Cook on low for 30 to 45 minutes, or until the onions are caramelized. Stir occasionally to prevent burning.

  5. Add a final light layer of mozzeralla and gorgonzola.

  7. Remove from the oven, while still warm top with chopped arugula and red pepper flakes.
