  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small red onion, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar,optional
  • 2, 9-inch store bought naan
  • 1/3 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup prepared pesto
  • 8 asparagus spears (bottom ends snapped off and discarded), cut into 1 1/2-inch lengths
  • 8-12 cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
  • 4 ounces fontina cheese, sliced as thinly as possible


  1. Heat oil in a heavy-bottomed sauté pan over medium heat. Add onions and sauté about 15 minutes, then add add sugar, if using, to pan and stir. Cook an additional 30 to 45 minutes or until onions are caramelized and golden brown.

Time to caramelize onions: Approximately 45 minutes

Active Time: 20 minutes

Number of servings (yield): 2 small "pizzas"
