“There’s no better appetizer than a mini pizza, and there might not be better toppings than these: sweet caramelized onions, goat cheese and prosciutto,” De Laurentiis writes.
For De Laurentiis’ pizzettes, you’ll need a handful of basic ingredients, including olive oil, kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, and sugar, as well as herbs de Provence, a few large onions, goat cheese, and prosciutto. And to make the process even easier (yes, please!), buy the pizza dough at the store.
To start, caramelize your onions by cooking them with salt, pepper, herbs de Provence and sugar. This will take about 45 minutes to an hour. Then, after stamping your pizza dough into circles (using a cookie cutter, which you can find on Amazon for just $7), top with caramelized onion and goat cheese, and bake for about 10 minutes.
Pull your pizzettes of the oven, top with prosciutto — and enjoy!
