Pear and Gorgonzola Cheese Pizzas

I really really like California Pizza Kitchen's Pear and Gorgonzola Pizza. It's one of my favorite things to eat. like, ever. So, when we made a pasta dish a few nights back and had some Gorgonzola cheese left over, I thought I'd use it up in a tasty pear pizza combo.

No one in my house really likes the Gorgonzola so these lil' guys were just for me.

What you'll need:
*Pizza dough or crust (these are from sprouts they come in a 5 pack and they're about 6-8 inches in diameter) you can also use a tortilla or any round bread product, really
*Pears (I used 1)
*Olive Oil
*Avocado Oil
*some type of salad (I used some Arugula and Spinach we had at the house for other recipes this week)
*Gorgonzola Cheese

What to do with your ingredients:
*Pre-heat oven to 375 degreees

Start with a clean pear, slice it up.

Pour some Avocado Oil onto a baking sheet (I used the toaster oven for this part since it was such a small amount of food).

Add sliced pear to the baking sheet and insert into the oven for about 10 minutes.

Once the pears are done, turn the oven up to 400 degrees or whatever your pizza crust recipe says, gather all your ingredients, and create assembly line.

Assemble ingredients, start by drizzling the pizza crust with a little olive oil, add cheese, add pears (in a pretty pattern doesn't hurt) place in the oven at the new 400 degree mark for about 5 minutes (or as instructed by your pizza crust recipe).

Once done, and the cheese is melty, add some Spinach (for iron).

and maybe some Arugula (or whatever else salad you have in your fridge).



save one for your lunch at work tomorrow? (they taste good cold too)

Happy Pear and Gorgonzola Cheese Pizza Making :)
