Sweet caramelized onions dancing with dollops of tangy creamy brie on a French onion soup pizza.
This recipe is dedicated to my dad! His favorite thing to eat was French onion soup. When he went to Paris with my mom he ordered it breakfast lunch and dinner. Every time I make a recipe for a spin on French Onion soup I think of him and cheers to him! I hope this makes him proud and he is smiling down on me.
I ams so grateful that The French Cheese Board in NYC contacted me to make a pizza with their cheese. The theme was National Pizza Day and I knew French onions soup pizza was a great way to honor my dad. The cheese shop is so cool. It is nestled in a fun part of SOHO and everyone there is so nice. Plus when you walk in you get transformed to a cheese shop in Paris! When in NYC check it out!
Here Are The Cheeses French Cheese Board Gave Me:
- Brie: Creamy rich tangy cheese that adds a hint of buttery cheesy yum to the pizza.
- Beaufort: This is a cousin to Gruyere. Its nutty easy to grate and fabulous melting cheese.
- Emmental: Very much like a Swiss cheese. Mild, easy to grate, with slight tangy smooth taste.
Dash Of Gratitude Tip While You Cook:
My mission with Chop Happy is to create easy recipe for busy people with a dash of gratitude! Since we all have to be in the kitchen at some point in our day lets use that time to zen out and gain more gratitude.
For the 10 minutes while the tostada is cooking visualize your dreams as if it is already here. Working on you does not have to be a long drawn out process. It can be as simple as making agreements with yourself. The perfect book to read to learn more about finding calmness and purpose is The Four Agreements Read some pages while the house fills with cheesy joy. Hope this helps you find joy in a crazy day and I am so grateful for you!
Recipe Hack / Cooking Tips:
- Pizza Dough: Support local pizza shops and get dough from them. They will definitely sell it to you and it makes cooking so much easier.
- Grate Your Own Cheese: Pre-grated cheese has chemicals to keep its shredded shape. This prevents it from melting well. Also tastes fresher. Freeze the cheese for 30 minutes and it grated easy.
- Gratitude While Stirring: Use the kitchen as a place for self care. As you stir or chop say what you are grateful for. I do this all the time so that cooking can be a time to recharge.
