It all begins with Cheese…
Mozzarella and Cream cheese specifically! Mix both together in your favorite bowl and microwave for 1 minute. (If you don’t have a microwave you can do this on the stove, low heat and watch it carefully!
Stir it up…
and heat for one more minute. Carefully remove it from the microwave and stir in the remaining ingredients. So cheesy, you’ll be tasted to grab a spoonful!
Grab the baking sheet…
and press the dough evenly on a parchment lined baking sheet. Wet fingers work best for this exercise Now bake this at 425 degrees for 10 minutes or so. The crust should be golden brown.
While the dough is baking…
prep the red onion, mince the garlic and slice the olives. Grab a little bowl and mix the garlic with the Olive oil.
Shred the Gruyere Cheese…
and toss with the Parmesan and Thyme.
The Timer says…
time to assemble! Lightly brush the crust with Garlic Oil, sprinkle the Mozzarella and Blue cheese evenly over the crust. Add the Onion rings and Olives. Top with the Gruyere mixture! Ohhhh my! If you like pepperoni or other toppings feel free to add those before the final cheese topping!
Back to the oven…
for 15-20 minutes. The cheese should be a bit bubbly and golden!
