|1||teaspoon olive oil|
|1||large sweet onion, sliced (about 3 cups)|
|1/4||teaspoon dried thyme leaves|

- Knead pesto into dough until evenly mixed throughout. Cover dough with plastic wrap; let rest 10 minutes.

When fully pressed into pan, cover with plastic wrap; let stand in warm place about 30 minutes or until doubled in bulk.
- Meanwhile, heat olive oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes or until tender and well browned. Stir in thyme, salt and pepper.
- Preheat oven to 375°F. Spread onions evenly over dough. Sprinkle with olives. Bake 20 minutes or until bottom is crisp and well browned. To further brown top, place in broiler 1 to 2 minutes.
