I seem to be making many things with caramelized onions these days. But by far, my favorite way to have them recently is this caramelized Vidalia onion focaccia I’m sharing here with you today!
Vidalia onions have a very distinctive sweet taste to them. I think they make just about any recipe taste a little better! I add them caramelized to soups and to sauces. And my most favorite way to use them is topped on pizza and focaccia!
