Caramelized Onion Pizza with Jalapenos and Mushrooms

Another caramelized onion pizza, but this one has fresh onions on it too. I love the combination of mushrooms, jalapenos and onions.

1 large white or brown onion, thinly sliced and caramelized in a little olive oil
Sea salt
1 yellow bell pepper, slivered
6-8 oz. crimini or button mushrooms, sliced
1/2 c. pickled jalapeno slices
1/4 red onion, thinly sliced into rings
1 pizza crust, store bought or home made

1)  Preheat the oven according to the instructions for the pizza crust you are using. Heat a little extra virgin olive oil in a saute pan over medium heat and add the thinly sliced white or yellow onion and a sprinkling of sea salt. Toss the onion to coat with the oil and then leave it be for about 5 minutes until it starts to brown. Toss the onion around in the pan and leave it for another 3 minutes. Once it starts to get very brown keep tossing it around as it finishes caramelizing. It will take about 10-17 minutes total.

2) When the onion is done spread it out over the pizza crust. Add a little more oil to the pan and add the yellow peppers and mushrooms. Saute them about 3-5 minutes until softened. Sprinkle them with a little sea salt and then arrange the peppers and mushrooms over the caramelized onion.

I used red peppers this time, but I like it better with yellow.
3) Arrange the jalapeno slices and sliced red onion over the top of the pizza and bake according to the directions for your crust.
