Onion Jam and Potato Cheddar Pizza

My friend Leanne said to me, "I have to give you a pizza idea"! Of course! I'll never say no to a new recipe. She'd tasted this pizza while on holidays and came home to duplicate it as best she could....she was speaking my language:) Onion jam, topped with potatoes, bacon, cheddar and finished off with a drizzle of sour cream. Sounded a bit like perogies to me....and the taste? Kind of like perogies. We enjoyed it very much and it's worth sharing the recipe.
  • 1 thin pizza crust of your choice
  • 1/3 cup onion jam (this can be purchased or home made) 
  • 2 med-large potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
  • olive oil, salt, pepper, dill 
  • 8 strips of bacon, fried and crumbled
  • cheddar cheese, grated
  • sour cream
  1. Peel and cube potatoes. Toss in a small amount of olive oil and season. Roast in 375º oven until potatoes are fork tender but not overly soft. You can also do this step in the microwave to speed up the process and cook until fork tender. 
  2. Make your favourite pizza dough and when ready roll out and put onto a greased pizza pan that has been sprinkled with cornmeal if you like the crust to have extra crunch
  3. Spread dough with onion jam.
  4. Top with cubed roasted potatoes, then the crumbled bacon, and last top with cheddar cheese.
  5. Bake in 475º oven (or on hot outdoor grill) until pizza is done. Approximately 20 minutes.
  6. Drizzle with sour cream and enjoy. 


  1. Sounds delicious. Do you have a recipe for the onion jam? Thanks to all the girls for sharing on this site!! Judy

  2. I love home-made pizza. It is so easy to prepare and tastes delicious!

  3. You lost me at the word "jam" associated with pizza. What is onion jam?

    1. Hi Lorrie, onion jam is basically caramelized onions. I have found onion jam in specialty food stores sometimes it's labeled caramelized onions. Melt butter, add a lot of thin sliced onions and saute on low for at least 1/2 hour. Sprinkle with a bit of white sugar and deglaze the pan with some balsamic vinegar and allow the onions to get a deep rich brown colour. Oh so tasty!

  4. oinion jam must be very delicious, I have not tried any.

  5. Wow Kathy - this sounds delicious. I didn't even know there was such a thing as Onion Jam but I have a jar of "Caramelized Onion Confit" - wonder if that would be similar? I must try this pizza.

    1. Yes Rosella. I've used that and it's perfect!
