Ingredients
  1. 1 pizza dough (stand mixer or food processor methods)
  2. 3 large Vidalia onions (about 3 pounds)
  3. 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus additional for the pizza
  4. 1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus additional for the pizza
  5. 1 garlic clove
  6. 2 to 3 Brussels sprouts
  7. ⅓ cup canned crushed tomatoes
  8. 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  9. Pecorino cheese, to garnish
Instructions
  1. WHAT TO DO
  2. Prepare the dough using either the stand mixer or food processor methods (you also can knead by hand; follow this video instruction for more). Follow the preparation instructions in the dough recipe if prepared in advance.
  3. To make the caramelized onions: Peel, halve, and slice the onions as thinly as possible. In a very large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium high heat. Add the onions, which can mound in the skillet if necessary. Saute, stirring frequently, about 10 minutes until soft and translucent. Add 1 teaspoon kosher salt and reduce the heat to medium-low, finding a temperature that is not so hot that the onions burn but not so low that they do not continue to cook. Cook slowly, stirring every 5 to 10 minutes or so, until very reduced and dark brown, about 40 minutes. The onions will turn from translucent white to golden to brown to a rich, caramely dark brown color, and the volume will have reduced by at least 4 times.
  4. Place a pizza stone in the oven and preheat to 500°F.
  5. Meanwhile, mince the garlic and thinly slice the Brussels sprouts.
  6. When the oven is ready, stretch the dough into a circle (see this video for instructions). Cut a small divot into the top of the circle, then form the bottom of the dough into a point so that it forms a heart shape. Carefully place the dough on a pizza peel spread with flour or cornmeal. Since the heart-shaped pizza is a bit more fragile than other shapes, use a conveyor-type pizza peel to slide it into the oven if you can. If not, cross your fingers and slide quickly!
  7. Spread the crushed tomatoes in a thin layer across the dough, then sprinkle minced garlic and add a bit of kosher salt. Top with mozzarella cheese and shavings of Pecorino cheese (use a vegetable peeler). Add dollops of caramelized onions, then sprinkle all over with Brussels sprouts and a few pinches kosher salt.
  8. Transfer the pizza to the pizza stone on the pizza peel, then bake until the cheese is melted, about 7 minutes.
