1 TBS fresh chives. snipped

2 onions, cut in half and sliced

1 garlic clove

2 TBS olive oil

fresh basil, cut in chiffonades

salt and pepper


In a large skillet heat 1 TBS olive over medium high heat. Add onions, lower heat to medium and cook until carmelized, about 20 minutes. Drizzle onions with balsamic vinegar and cook for 6 minutes longer on low until the liquids have been absorbed. Add fresh thyme and set aside.

In a large bowl combine cream cheese, 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese. parsley and chives. Beat until blended.


Preheat grill to medium high.


Roll out pizza dough into a 12 x 6 rectangle. Brush each side with olive oil. Place pizza on grill and grill covered for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is lightly browned.


Flip. Spread grilled side with cheese mixture and sprinkle the remaining Parmesan cheese over the cheese mixtures.  Cover that cheese with the onion mixture and layer tomatoes over the top. Cover and grill for 2-3 minutes until cheese is melted and the pizza is slightly charred.

Drizzle with a little extra olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt and fresh cracked pepper. Sprinkle with basil.
