Grilled Flatbread Topped

With Caramelized Onions and Crunchy Red Grapes

2 (16 oz.) store-bought pizza dough rounds
Extra-virgin olive oil
3 large onions, sliced
All-purpose flour, for dusting
1 (8 oz.) container mascarpone cheese
1 cup crumbled blue cheese
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 cup toasted walnuts, roughly chopped
1 cup firm California red grapes, split down the middle
2 Tablespoons freshly chopped flat-leaf parsley


Remove the pizza dough from the refrigerator 1 hour before you are ready to start.

In a large sauté pan, over medium-low heat, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add onions and slowly caramelize until brown and creamy, about 20 minutes. Set aside to cool.

Preheat oven to 500 degrees F. Heat the grill over medium-high heat and wipe down with oiled paper towels to create a non-stick surface. On a floured surface, roll out each of the pizza dough into an elongated shape, about 12" x 8" and about 1/2" thick. Brush with olive oil and grill on both sides until warmed through and grill marked, about 4 minutes per side.

Transfer to a baking sheet. In a medium bowl, mix together the mascarpone and blue cheese. Smear the cheese mixture over each of the grilled pizza crusts. Place in oven for 2 to 3 minutes until the cheese melts. Remove from oven and transfer to cutting board or platter.

Top with caramelized onions, toasted walnuts and fresh grapes. Season with a few turns of freshly ground black pepper, drizzle with some more extra-virgin olive oil and top with fresh parsley.
