  • Preheat your oven to the highest heat possible.
  • Form a ball from the pizza dough. Start by making a circular motion with the palm of your hand, with some pressure. Then release the pressure gradually until you get a nice ball shape.
  • Put your pizza dough balls on a lightly floured work surface. Dust them with some more flour, and let them proof covered with a kitchen towel for another 15 minutes.
  • Shape your dough to form a large, thin disk and place it in a pizza pan.
  • Put your tomato purée (passata) on top of your pizza dough, in the middle. With a back of a spoon or a ladle, using circular motions towards the edges, make sure the tomato covers your pizza dough. Leave an edge about 1 inch (2-3 cm) thick.
  • Drizzle a few drops of extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle some dried oregano and salt.
  • Add your mozzarella cheese. Just tear it in bite size pieces, and place them over the tomato sauce.
  • Crumble your Gorgonzola on top of your pizza, in about 1 teaspoon size pieces.
  • Heap the caramelized red onions on top of the other toppings.
  • Transfer your Gorgonzola pizza into the oven. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the edges are slightly browned.
