making life sweeter
There’s nothing quite like the flavor of a fresh, true sweet onion, but cooking with these little gems can be a bit tricky. The unique composition of a sweet onion makes them a wonderful ingredient in some dishes and a terrible choice for others. For the best results when cooking sweet onions consider these helpful tips:

Use sweets: Raw in sandwiches and salads; lightly grilled-whole or sliced, gently roasted or quickly baked; in stir-frys; power bowls, street tacos and other fresh fare. They are delicious caramelized but take care not to stir them too rigorously or cook them at too high a temperature

Avoid using in: Slow-cooker or long-simmering recipes like chili, stews, soup or in baked casserole dishes. Prolonged cooking breaks down the delicate texture and flavor of sweet onions.

Grilled Veggie Pizza
1 12-inch store bought pre-baked pizza crust
1/3 cup pizza or marinara sauce
6 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 yellow, red or sweet onion, cut into slivers
1/2 zucchini, sliced into 1/3" rounds
1/2 cup broccoli florets, cut into bite-sized pieces
2 Roma tomatoes, sliced
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
Preheat your grill to medium heat.

Toss onion, zucchini and broccoli in the vinegar, Italian seasoning and 1 1/2 tablespoons oil. Transfer to your grill pan and grill, covered, over direct heat for 8-10 minutes or until tender, stirring once in the middle of cooking. Remove veggies from heat and let cool for a few minutes.

Place pizza crust on your work surface and brush with remaining olive oil. Top with marinara or pizza sauce, veggies and cheese. Grill over indirect heat for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and the crust is crispy. Remove from heat, let stand for a few minutes, slice and serve.
