Add sugar; cook until they begin to caramelize, about 5 – 10 minutes longer, adding a few tablespoons of water as needed to prevent them from drying and burning. Stir in balsamic vinegar and cook 1 minute longer, set aside. Prepare pizza crust, brush top with remaining olive oil. In a small saucepan, melt butter; add flour and garlic, cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute. While whisking, pour milk into flour mixture. Season with salt & pepper, bring mixture just to a boil stirring constantly then remove from heat. Spread white sauce evenly over pizza crust. Top with half of the cheeses, then add spinach, bacon & onions. Top with remaining cheese. Bake in pre-heated oven for 11 – 13 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is golden.
