Caramelized Onions:

1 large yellow onion, halved, then sliced 1/4-inch-thick

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

2 tablespoons olive oil


1 pound sausage, removed from casings

4 teaspoons olive oil 

Four 12-inch flour tortillas 

2 large tomatoes, sliced into thin rounds (about 16 slices) 

3 cups shredded mozzarella


1/2 head iceberg lettuce, chopped

1 small tomato, diced 

4 strips cooked bacon, chopped 

1/3 cup blue cheese dressing 


  1. For the caramelized onions: Cook the onions in the butter and oil in a skillet over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until caramelized, about 20 minutes. Set aside.
  2. For the pizza: Cook the sausage in a skillet, breaking up with a wooden spoon, until crumbled and cooked through. Set aside.
  3. Adjust an oven rack in the middle position and preheat the broiler to high. Add the oil to a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, then add a tortilla; this will start crisping the bottom of the tortilla before it goes in the oven. Almost immediately, build the pizza right in the pan, starting with a quarter of the tomatoes followed by the a quarter of the cheese, making sure the cheese goes all the way to the edge and beyond. Then add a quarter of the onions and a quarter of the sausage. Transfer the skillet to the broiler and cook until the cheese is golden brown and melted, 4 to 5 minutes. Repeat with the remaining pizza ingredients to make 3 more pizzas. (You can hold the pizzas in a warm oven while you make the others.)
  4. For the salad: Place the lettuce in a salad bowl. Top with the tomatoes and bacon and drizzle with dressing.
