Ingredients
Onions:
2 tablespoons of olive oil
2 cups of chopped yellow onions
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Dough:
1 (1/4-ounce) packet active dry yeast
1 tablespoon of sugar
1 tablespoon of minced garlic
1/4 cup of olive oil plus 3 tablespoons
1 cup of warm water (about 110 degrees F)
1 teaspoon of fine salt
3 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons of kosher salt
Coarsely ground black pepper

Directions
Preheat oven to a setting of 350 degrees F.

To prepare the onions: Using a large skillet set over a medium heat, add in the oil. Once the oil is hot, add in the onions. Season with salt and pepper. Saute until caramelized, about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and cool completely.

To prepare the dough: Use an electric mixer with a dough hook to whisk together the sugar, yeast,  garlic, 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, warm water, and caramelized onions together for 2 minutes to dissolve the yeast. Add the fine salt and flour. With the mixer on low, mix until the dough starts to come together. Increase the speed to medium-high and mix until the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl and crawls up the dough hook. Grease a mixing bowl with 1 teaspoon of the oil. Place the dough in the greased bowl and turn once. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in a warm, draft free place until the dough doubles in size about 1 1/2 hours. Grease a half baking sheet pan (17 by 12-inch) with 2 teaspoons of the oil. Turn the dough out onto a baking sheet. Punch the dough down and press the dough out into the pan. Brush the dough with remaining olive oil. Sprinkle the dough with kosher salt and black pepper. Lightly cover the pan with plastic wrap and let the dough rest for 1 hour. Bake the dough for 30 to 35 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
