Fontina Cheese, Red Onion and Tomato Pizza

This is my favorite go to pizza. This recipe was actually for a potato tart that had these three ingredients. When I was going to make the tart, I did not have the right pastry so I had to adjust and use some Naan bread I had in the freezer. It was really good. SO know I use these three ingredients to make pizza. 

Like I said, I first used flatbread and this recipe I made with pre-made pizza dough. I have also tried it with Pillsbury pizza dough. The best so far was Stonefire flatbread. If I wasn't so lazy, I would make my own pizza dough and I still might, one day. But is a really good flavor combo! 

Get your pizza dough. I usually add a little olive oil. If you use raw dough, pre-bake it. 
If not then it is ready to go. 

This was already pre-cooked so I added olive oil and started layering the ingredients.

Add the Fontina cheese. 

Slice up tomatoes. Make them as thin as you can and put all over the dough.

Slice up red onions and add them to the pizza. 

Bake for about 15 minutes in a 400 degree oven. And there you have it. The cheese is delish with the fresh tomatoes and red onions. If you don't like onions, leave them out. You can also add some fresh basil to the top of the pizza as well.
