When the Garden Gives You Meyer Lemons Make Pizza!

Lemons on pizza? Yeah! Last night was Pizza Night. My number 1 pizza eater wanted smoked trout on one of them and I got inspired to add Meyer lemon to it and it was fabulous. So, here it is, no precise measurements or pizza making instructions. I'm assuming that you've made pizza before, but for me less is more when it comes to pizza toppings:

Smoked Trout and Meyer Lemon Pizza

Your favorite pizza dough for a 10" crust
1 large sweet onion, thinly sliced
olive oil
1 branch of fresh thyme
1 ball of buffalo mozzarella, sliced thinly
1/2 meyer lemon, sliced crosswise paper thin, tossed with a little olive oil
a pinch of dried oregano
1/2 of a smoked trout, flaked into small chunks (no skin)
grated parmigiano

Saute the onion in some olive oil with a pinch of salt and the branch of thyme until the onions are soft and starting to caramelize. Remove the thyme branch and set the onions aside to cool.
Assemble the pizza: Scatter the onions over the pizza crust (there may be extra onion left). Top with the mozzarella slices and then the meyer lemon slices. Sprinkle with the pinch of oregano. Bake until done, quickly scatter the smoked trout over the pizza and sprinkle with some parmigiano. Slice and serve.
