Sage, Caramalized Onions, Plum & Proscuitto Pizza

Another plant that did really well in our edible front yard garden was sage.  Other than the occasional chicken or turkey dish, we really don't use a lot of sage.  But, we have quite a bit of it - what to do?!

Our friend Dennis (he wrote a blog post about Pixie Bob the bunny) makes incredible pizza with some very creative combinations.  His sage and onion pizza inspired me to create my own version.  And, of course, because I'm testing recipes for the Prairie Fruit book that I'm working on, I added some plums.  And the proscuitto, well it was in the fridge, so I figured why not add it too.
