Blue Cheese and Red Onion Pizza

If I was super cheesy (which I almost am), I could call this a red, white, and blue pizza, but it's not really. Red onions are really purple-ish, and my blue cheese is more green-ish than blue. But at least the white is there! I LOVE blue cheese on pizza. Or gorgonzola, or most any blue-veined variety of cheese. I also love red onions on pizza. Last week, when we had a pizza night, I made individual pizzas for the whole family. Everyone else had boring pepperoni and mozzarella, but I went meatless (if you can even call pepperoni "meat" snicker, snicker) and opted for the red onions/blue cheese instead.... it was a truly deLISH combo! I thew some feta on everybody's pizza for that added flavor, as well.

I picked up some Spanish blue cheese, and was excited to see it was more green than blue- I love gorgonzola cheese, which is almost more greenish, and this was similar. Score!

This won't really be a recipe post; it'll be a list of ingredients, really. I used the whole wheat crust found here, and divided it up so everyone had thier own pizza.

Preheat oven to 425 F (220 C). Spread pizza sauce over crust, and top with all of the cheeses, putting the blue cheese on last. Top with red onion slices, and bake for 10-12 minutes or until done. (Cheese and crust are slightly browned).
