Sweet potato pizza with gorgonzola and onion

In the past two years that we've lived together, my husband and I have made pizza pretty much every Friday night (with a few exceptions). Most of the time we just have plain cheese, though we have been known to go Hawaiian (frozen pineapple chunks and prosciutto/bacon/ham) on occasion. Red onion and roasted red pepper is another favorite combination. But tonight I went a little crazy - sweet potato, onion and gorgonzola cheese. Mmmm.

Preheat the oven to 500°F (or as close as you can get it). Slice two medium sweet potatoes into 1/4" thick slices, toss with olive oil and salt, and 'roast' on a cookie sheet about 10 minutes, as the oven is preheating.

Stretch out your dough - homemade or premade will do - on a cookie sheet, or if you have a pizza peel, use that instead. Spread out the half-baked sweet potato, half an onion (red is preferable but either works) cut into rings, and about 1/4 c. of crumbled gorgonzola. Bake about 15 minutes in the lower rack of the oven, until the dough has browned. Let cool a couple minutes before slicing and enjoy.
