Meanwhile heat a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter and place sliced onions in the pan with salt and pepper. Cook 8 minutes until onions are soft. Arrange onions evenly over dough. Top with tomatoes, reseason. Bake until dough is golden brown and crisp, 15 minutes. Let cool slightly. Top with goat cheese and herbs before cutting into squares. Serve warm or at room temperature.
