An Old Classic – Pear & Gorgonzola Pizza



makes 4 personal pizzas

1 recipe pizza dough (find it here)

3 pears (Choose your favorites! I used Bosc – pictured above).

1 cup gorgonzola cheese

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Sea salt

Freshly ground black pepper

Fresh rosemary – as much as you like!


Heat the oven to 500 degrees. If using a pizza stone,  allow the stone to heat up along with the oven for a half hour before baking on it.

Stretch out your dough on a cornmeal-dusted peel to about 10-12” in diameter. Distribute the sliced pears evenly on the top of the dough

Scatter the gorgonzola cheese on top of the pears.

Drizzle with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and fresh rosemary.

Slide your pizza onto the stone in the oven and bake for 8-10  minutes.

Remove from the oven and serve!
