I have a serious love for short ribs so I am testing it every which way, upside down, backwards and forwards. This one was easy. I used the braising liquid over the dough and it sure makes for a delicious sauce. The different cheeses all compliment each other and it turns out that yummy melted brie is divine with short ribs! Then for a little sweetness I tossed on some caramelized onions

Short Rib Fever: Short Rib, Brie and Ricotta Pizza with Caramelized Onions

Short Rib fever Week ends with this spectacular recipe that you really should make over the weekend…This Short Rib, Brie and Ricotta Pizza with Caramelized Onions recipe came to me in the middle of the night and sometimes when that happens it’s a disaster in the kitchen the next day when I’m trying to figure out how to make it all work. This is definitely not one of those times. Short ribs are one of those things…if you make them right…oh baby. And if you make them wrong…oh boy. I would rather eat an old shoe than try to gnaw on a bad short rib. Now I can make them in my sleep practically and I think that’s why I was thinking up this recipe while I was dozing off.

Then for a little sweetness I tossed on some caramelized onions…oh BABY! Plan ahead if you’re making this- toss the short ribs in earlier in the day so they’re nice and tender and delicious when you go to make the pizza. Oh! And also, let the pizza dough rise even if it doesn’t say it on the package (see below)
