Your dough is now ready to either refrigerate, or roll out into pizzas. Note: If desired, let the dough rest for an hour before using it; while this isn?t a necessary step, it will improve the crust?s flavor. Read on?
This unctuously rich topping is characterized by the subtle sweetness of caramelized onion. Note that it takes a lot of raw onion to end up with much less cooked onion; 2 pounds raw onions yield about 2 3/4 cups caramelized onions.

4 large (2 pounds) yellow onions, thinly sliced (about 7 to 8 cups)
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar*
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
14 to 16 ounces brie cheese, rind removed, cut into cubes
freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup (2 ounces) sliced almonds (optional)
*Use 2 to 3 tablespoons of any sweet dessert wine in place of the wine vinegar and sugar, if desired.

For those of you who can?t get enough of roasted garlic-or who get carried away and make too much-this is a delightful use for it.

Maybe it?s some latent Russian inclination in my soul-after all, I did name my son Nikolai-but I?ve always loved the combination of mushrooms and sour cream. So when Sue created this unusual "pizza," it was all I could do to stop "taste-testing" the filli
One taster commented that while this was the least visually appealing of all the pizzas Sue tested, it was wonderfully rich and creamy, almost like cream of mushroom soup on toast!
