Caramelize the onions: Heat 1 Tbsp oil in a saute pan over medium heat, then add onions, sugar, and salt. Cook 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, then add in a dash of wine. Cook until wine has evaporated, then add a bit more. Continue this process until the wine is gone and onions are soft and caramelized. If onions start to become crispy, reduce heat.
Assemble: Preheat oven to 475 degrees F ( 250 C). Spread remaining olive oil over each pizza dough, then sprinkle each with a pinch of salt, caramelized onions, cheeses, and pears. Finish with the a sprinkle of thyme leaves.
Bake: Bake for 10 minutes on the lowest rack. Move to the top rack and broil about 2 minutes to lightly brown the crust and cheese. (If using a firm store bought dough, place directly on rack. If using homemade, place a baking sheet in the oven to get nice and hot, then set pizza on that and bake).
What pear should you use? I used Green Bartletts but, Red Bartlett, Bosc, Asian, Conference, or Stark Crimson would hold up well under heat. Read more about pear varieties here.
