I was given a heap of figs by my grandparents a while ago. I am not too keen on just eating figs as they are so I decided to do something a little different. I had previously used figs to make a fig & goats cheese tranche before (oh what a dreadful photo back then). It was really good. I had managed to buy 3 kgs of onions as I kept forgetting there was already some in the cupboard so I decided that I needed to cook up some caramelised onions. Since I was doing that I thought that combining those two things would work on a pizza. I am usually a very safe person when it comes to pizza so I decided that it was time to try something different.
This was so very good. It certainly was a wonderful attempt at something a bit different on a pizza. I was a little worried that with the caramelised onion and figs that it would be a bit sweet but it wasn't. I think that the prosciutto cut through the sweetness.
1 kg onions
1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp rapadura sugar (or brown sugar)
Finely slice onions, I use a v-slicer.
Heat oil in a large pan over a low heat. Add onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until they are soft. Add sugar and continue cooking until onions are almost melting.
