Caramelized Onion & Bacon Pizza

This is one of my all time favorite pizzas! The onions are so sweet & perfectly paired with the salty bacon, all on top of the creamy cheese....oh my goodness, it is delicious! Ingredients:

(See Note)
3 small onions, sliced
1-2 tbsp Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper
4 slices of Bacon, cooked
1/4 cup soft, spreadable Garlic & Herb Cheese (I used Allouette brand)
7 pieces, thinly sliced, Provolone Cheese

Directions:Cut the onions in half, then slice. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a 10" skillet over medium/ high heat. It looks like a lot of onions, but don't skimp! You're topping a whole pizza & they cook down to practically nothing. Add the additional tablespoon of oil if you need it. Season with salt & pepper. Cook the onions about 8 minutes, until start to soften. Then lower the heat to medium/ low & cook for another 20-30 minutes, until golden.
Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Stretch out the pizza dough into a 12" pizza pan. Gently spread the garlic & herb cheese onto the dough as evenly as possible, making sure not to tear the dough. You just want a light coating or the flavor of the cheese to take over the pizza. Then spread the caramelized onions on top of the cheese. Add the provolone slices like they were pepperoni, allowing the onions to poke through some. Top with the bacon, torn into pieces.
Cook in an oven, heated to 500 degrees for 10 minutes, or until golden.
Let it sit for a few minutes to cool before slicing!! YUM!
Note: This pizza was only a 12", which is less than half of my pizza dough recipe. If you are making a larger pizza, you will need to adjust ingredients accordingly. :)
