Nolio Pizza (a la Bertucci's)

Bertucci's (or "The Bertooch" as we call it here at work - we share a building with the restaurant...) removed a pizza from their menu a couple of years ago. I don't know why they did this. Their Nolio Pizza - god rest its soul - was a white pizza with mozarella, carmelized onions, lemon-y cream sauce and prosciutto.

About a year ago, I came across a knock-off recipe for the Nolio and resurrected it quite successfully! It's always nice to be able to satisfy a food craving by whipping it up in your own kitchen, and I did just that one day for lunch this weekend. John seemed alarmed at the less-than-healthy ingredients, but I was really able to cut back on the quantity of each ingredient - the flavors are so vibrant and go so well together. The Nolio lives on!
