Naan Pizza with Onion Confit, Chevre and Walnuts

My favorite item made in the cooking class I attended last month was the pizza.  I had never heard of confit prior to that evening, and I'm happy the instructor introduced it to us because it is simple and delicious.

According to Wikipedia, confit is "is a generic term for various kinds of food that have been immersed in a substance for both flavor and preservation."  My first attempt at confit looks different than the instructor's version, but it tasted exactly the same, so I'm happy with it.

2 tablespoons butter
2 medium (1 lb) onions, chopped
3/4 cup red wine (I used Merlot)
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp dried thyme
freshly ground pepper
walnut pieces
Chevre goat cheese
naan bread

The confit takes awhile to make only due to a long simmer time.  I was nervous about leaving it unattended during my first attempt, so I pulled a dining chair up to the kitchen counter and read a Martha Stewart magazine while monitoring the confit...and sipping some of the Trader Joe's wine used in the recipe :)


  1. I've been thinking about making the pizza too, but I need to get to Trader Joe's for some Naan! Glad it turned out well.

  2. Wow this looks so delicious!! :)

  3. I like the idea of using Naan bread for pizza! So delicious!
