For your consideration:
1. Thaw homemade pizza dough. Allow to double in size in a warmish place, such as in front of a window in July when it's 91 degrees outside.
2. Caramelize onions with sprigs of thyme. Congratulate yourself for using up thyme, which is a refrigerator orphan no more!
6. Add pancetta, olives, and dollops of ricotta (another refrigerator orphan).
7. Finish with a good grating of Parmesan cheese (i.e., more salt).
9. Watch fancy-schmancy pizza bake until your husband tells you the baby is hungry. Wonder, for the umpteenth time, why, oh why, does Paul always want to eat at the same time you do. How does he know?
11. It's still delicious. Didn't anticipate how the sweetness of onions would balance the saltiness of the olives, pancetta, and Parm. Go me!
