Duck season is open until December 9th and then reopens after Christmas on December 29th in the western zone of New York. Duck pizza is an easy weeknight meal for the whole family to enjoy.
Half of one large, boneless duck breast, cut into bite-sized slices
1 small yellow onion, sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoon honey
1 pre-baked 10-12 inch pizza crust, preferably whole wheat
3-4 tablespoons of your favorite BBQ sauce
10 ounces of shredded fontina cheese (or other favorite cheese)
1 tablespoon dried rosemary
Preheat oven to 450°F. In a skillet over medium heat, saute the duck meat in the 1 teaspoon of olive oil for 3-5 minutes. Remove from pan.
Add the onions and additional 2 teaspoons of olive oil to the skillet over medium heat and cook until translucent and soft, about 5 minutes. Mix in honey and continue to cook until brown and fragrant, about 5-7 minutes more.
Layer BBQ sauce, caramelized onions, cheese, duck slices, and rosemary. Get creative with additional toppings, such as spinach, apples, or squash.
Bake in preheated oven until cheese in center of pizza is completely melted, about 10 minutes. Serves 6-8.
