Cheddar, Prosciutto, Caramelized Onions and Apple Pizza

Pin It
This recipe was inspired by a pizza I had at a local restaurant a few months back. I was a little hesitant to order it since the ingredients were ones that I had never experienced together on a pizza before. But, as you should know by my French Onion Soup post, I am a sucker for caramelized onions so that reeled me right in. I also love prosciutto and Granny Smith apples, so I figured it couldn't be too bad!

Boy was I right! This pizza was awesome and I knew right away that I wanted to recreate it at home! The apples add a little bit of sweetness, which pairs nicely with the onions. They loose some of their crunch while cooking, but still add some texture to the pizza. The peppery prosciutto and cheddar cheese are perfect compliments to each other and pair nicely with the other toppings. Please try this one at home and don't be intimidated by the ingredients. They work together perfectly! Promise!


  • Quick and Easy Pizza Dough
  • 2 cups Cabot white cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 lb. prosciutto, sliced thin and cut into small pieces
  • 1 onion, sliced thin
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1/2 Granny Smith apple, sliced thin

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Make your pizza dough. Let it rest while preparing the other ingredients.

In saucepan, melt butter on medium heat. Add sliced onions and cook until caramelized, about 20 minutes.

Once dough ready, stretch it out on a large pizza pan or baking stone. Spread the cheese evenly on the dough. Top with caramelized onions, prosciutto and apple slices.

Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Enjoy!
