Caramelized Onion and Blue Cheese Flat Bread

We have had a pretty mild January so far.  After November and December, we needed it.  One problem with warmer weather is now it can snow.  When it is really cold, it is too cold to snow, but now, at 10 above, it snows a lot.  Dave spends evenings pushing snow around.  He moves it off the drive way and off the back deck.  He shovels a path to the fuel tank for the delivery man, and he usually does a neighbor or two.  You have to move it right away or it freezes hard and it is like trying to shovel concrete.

It is dark, it is cold and by the time he comes in he is hungry.  This is a nice little snack I made to help warm him up and keep him until dinner.  He needs to keep up his strength because next he has to carry wood in.

Caramelized Onion and Blue Cheese Flat Bread
1 cup greek yogurt
1.5 cups self rising flour*, plus more for kneading
1 Tbsp. olive oil
3 large onions
1 tsp. salt
1/4 cup blue cheese
1/4 cup parmesan cheese

Pre-heat oven to 400°F.

In heavy bottomed pan or dutch oven, heat oil over medium heat.  Add sliced onions and salt.  Cover and cook for 15 minutes.  Remove cover and cook 15-20 minutes more, or until onions are golden brown and tender.  Remove from heat to cool.

Mix yogurt and flour together (I use my stand mixer).  Turn dough out onto a floured counter or table, knead until dough is lightly sticky and well mixed.
Roll out onto a pizza stone or a cookie sheet.
Top dough with onions, blue cheese and parmesan cheese.  Bake for 15-20 minutes or until dough is cooked through and cheese is bubbly and browned.
Cut into wedges and serve warm.

*To make your own self-rising flour mix: 1 cup flour, 1 tsp. baking powder, 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. baking soda.  Double or triple for this recipe.
