Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese Pizza

The goat cheese and caramelized onion pizza is a great and simple alternative to the tired, old, regular pizza. It's not too difficult to make, but it may take a couple of tries to get it just right. I had one total fail, but the second time it turned out lovely. 
To make one personal pizza (about 7"-8"), you will need:
1/2 to 1 cup of goat cheese (in a cheese block or already crumbled) depending on how cheesy you want your pizza.
Extra virgin olive oil
Pizza bases (you can find a great recipe here if you prefer a homemade base)
2 tablespoons of chutney (I prefer the caramelized onion sort)
1 red onion
Ingredients for two pizzas
1. Preheat your oven to 200C or 400F
2. Lightly spread olive oil onto your pizza bases. When the oven is ready, bake your bases for 5 minutes.
3. Chop your onions. Remove the top and bottom bits and cut them width-wise
 4. Pour olive oil into a frying pan, enough to cover the pan completely. Turn your stove onto a low heat and let the oil begin to simmer before placing your onions in. 

5. Place all of your onions into the frying pan. If you would like, you can pour a little more oil over them or add a teaspoon of sugar to help with the caramelization process.

 6. Allow the onions to begin to brown. Turn them over at regular intervals with a spatula to ensure that all sides of the onion are cooked and caramelized. This is the tricky part and where I totally messed up the first time. There is no set time for the caramelization process, instead you need to just wait and watch. I decide it is time when some of the smaller pieces begin to burn.
7. Take your goat cheese and chop it up or place it fully in a pan. Turn on the stove for 2-3 minutes and allow the cheese to melt without burning. (Again, you need to watch this closely!) It will turn a disgusting looking consistency, but it is necessary in order to get your pizza just right!

 8. Now comes the easy part. Spread your cheese onto the crisped pizza base. Spread your two tablespoons of chutney on top and then decorate with the caramelized onions.

9. Cook for 10 minutes in the oven and your pizza is ready to eat!
