  1. In large skillet, melt butter over medium heat; cook onions, salt and ¼ tsp (1 mL) of the pepper, stirring often, for 20 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from heat; stir in mustard. Let cool completely.
  2. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Lightly grease two baking sheets; dust each with 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the cornmeal.
  3. Divide pizza dough in half. Roll out each portion on lightly floured surface into 10- x 6-inch (25 x 15 cm) rectangle, about 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick. Transfer each to prepared baking sheet.
  4. Spread each pizza dough with half of the fruit spread, leaving 1-inch (2.5 cm) border all around. Scatter caramelized onions, cheese, thyme and remaining pepper evenly over top. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven; garnish with arugula and walnuts. Cut each flatbread into 6 pieces.
