October is that time of year when I start craving more hearty, richer flavors in my foods. This pizza hits the nail on the head with the sweet carmelized onions and the earthy flavors from the mushrooms (sauteed in garlic and shallots). The recipe is not challenging, but does take some time to prepare the onions, so plan ahead. We used store bought pizza dough that you can roll out, but I do have to admit that a homemade pizza dough would add just that much more character! Let us know if you need a pizza dough recipe, we have an awesome one.
We served this wine with our Enyé Syrah, which I chose because of the earthiness and the deep fruit of the wine. Paul wasn’t as sure as I was, but hands down this was the best pairing.
We hope that you enjoy the recipe!
