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.

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella or provolone cheese
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 red or sweet onion, sliced into thin slivers
10-15 cherry or grape tomatoes, washed, dried and sliced in half
1 cup broccoli florets, chopped into bite-sized pieces
1 red or yellow bell pepper, cored, seeded and thinly sliced
1 small zucchini, washed and thinly sliced

Preheat oven to 425 F. Brush pizza with olive oil. Place pizza on a work surface and spread sauce over the surface. Add cheeses first and then vegetables, distributing all ingredients evenly. Place pizza directly on oven rack and bake for 10-15 minutes, until crust is crispy and cheese is melted and bubbling. Remove from oven, slice and serve!
