To make, add the ingredients to your bread machine and use the dough or pizza cycle, some bread machines note pizza for their dough cycle. When the dough cycle finishes, divide dough into two pieces. The dough may be a little sticky, lightly flour each half and press each on to a cookie sheet layered with a sheet of parchment paper or oiled well. Shape each piece of dough into an oval pressing it down and spreading it out on the pan, to about 1/2 inch thick. Then top each shaped oval piece with half of the red onion, rosemary, and oil mixture.
Let rise in a warm place. I will turn on my overhead stove light and let it rise there for about one hour. You can tell it is done rising, when you put a small dent in dough with your finger, about 1/4 inch deep and the dough does not bounce back. Add to preheated oven at 375 degrees and bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown.
