All-purpose flour, for dusting.

sheet with cornmeal and set aside.

oil and the butter over medium-low heat. Add the
onions, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring
occasionally, until golden and caramelized, about
20 minutes. Increase the heat to medium-high and

the sausage and cook, stirring constantly, until
cooked through, about 8 minutes. Set aside to cool

dough into a 13-inch diameter circle, about 1/4-
inch thick. Transfer the dough to the prepared
baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Spread
the onion mixture evenly over the dough, leaving a
1-inch border. Sprinkle the cheese on top. Bake
until the crust is golden and the cheese has
melted, about 15 to 17 minutes. Remove from the
oven and sprinkle with chopped basil. cut the
pizza into wedges and serve.
