Prepare the onions. Clean, wash and slice them finely. Put them in a saucepan together with 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, wine and all the aromatic herbs. Season to taste with salt and cook over a low heat until cooking juice is well retired.
When the dough has risen, divide it into four pieces and transfer every portion to a baking sheet (oil them with the remaining olive oil). This amount of dough is enough for four 30 cm (12in) round baking sheets if you like crunchy pizza but if you prefer soft pizza use only two baking sheets.
Spoon the onions on the surface of every pizza and allow to rise about 20 minutes in a warm place.
Meanwhile preheat oven to 220°C (425°F) and cube the mozzarella. Bake the two pizzas for about 15 minutes; then remove them from the oven and arrange the cubed mozzarella cheese over the top. Bake again for about 5 minutes. Cooking times are indicative; everyone can adjust them to his oven.
Serve hot or warm.
