Pear and Gorgonzola Pizza

9/25/11

Homemade pizza is one of the funnest things to make! I usually always start with a store brought pizza crust and then let my imagination go from there. I love using funky and exotic toppings. Some of my favorites include: apples, chicken, bbq sauce, and swiss… peaches, prosciutto, and mozzarella…. grapes, rosemary, and provolone… and of course buffalo chicken which is always a crowd pleaser. Whether cooked in the oven or on top of the grill pizza is relatively easy to make and serves as a great appetizer, dinner, or late night snack. In this recipe I use pears, red onion, gorgonzola, mozzarella, and walnuts. It was delicious and really made people’s heads spin!

Recipe
1 pizza crust (i used a prebaked boboli type)
1 T. olive oil
4 oz. mozzarella
4 oz. gorgonzola crumbles
2 pears
1 small red onion
1/4 c. chopped walnuts
Brush top of pizza crust with olive oil. Slice the pears and onions then arrange them on top of the pizza crust so they are distributed evenly. Sprinkle on cheeses. Top with walnuts and season with salt and pepper. Bake or grill until cheeses are melted and crust is crisp, about 10-15 minutes.
