Apple, Gorgonzola, Artichoke Pizza

So, I’ve been a very bad blogger lately.  I’ve had weddings every weekend for the past month (which is great), but that does not leave much time during the week to experiment with new recipes.  Today my twins asked for grilled cheese.  Now, I love a good grilled cheese as much as the next person, but I just wasn’t feeling it today.  So I scrounged through my cupboards and came up with this quick, throw together pizza and ate half of it myself for lunch.  It was quite delicious.  Try it when you need something in a hurry, you won’t regret it.

Apple, Gorgonzola and Artichoke Pizza

1 Boboli thin pizza crust

1 T olive oil

1 large apple peeled and thinly sliced (I like something tart, but it’s completely up to you)

1 cup Gorgonzola cheese crumbles

1 small can mushrooms

1 can artichoke hearts

1/4 cup pine nuts (candied pecans would be better, but I didn’t have those)

1 T honey

3 t lemon juice

3 t Dijon mustard

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Place crust on baking sheet.  Spread oil over crust.  Arrange apple slices on crust.  Sprinkle with cheese.  Sprinkle mushrooms, artichoke hearts and pine nuts on next.  Bake for 8-11 minutes.  I cooked mine for 8 and it could have used another 4-5 minutes, but that’s just my oven.  While cooking,  combine honey, lemon juice and mustard and whisk together.  Set aside.  Remove pizza from oven and drizzle with honey mixture.  Cut into wedges and enjoy!  Mmmm….

    from italy with love…..

    Did you use a sweet apple or a tart apple? I’d try a tart first, myself, to set off the gorgonzola.

    • November 11, 2011 at 1:55 pm #

      i think i had a gala left over and used that, but i would definitely use a granny smith or honeycrisp if i had one in the house 🙂 it’s funny, all of a sudden this post has gone viral. i’ve had a ton of hits on this today 🙂 enjoy!

        I think “freshly pressed” brought a lot of people here. Great post!

    oo this looks wonderful!

  8. November 11, 2011 at 2:56 pm #

    This looks delicious- definitely a combination I have to try now!

  9. November 11, 2011 at 3:25 pm #

    wooowww!! It looks really delicious!! SO yum!! Thanks for sharing.. 😀

  10. November 11, 2011 at 3:34 pm #

    This look divine! I’m a sucker for uniquely delicious pizzas

  11. November 11, 2011 at 4:00 pm #

    This is amazingly delicious.

  12. November 11, 2011 at 4:07 pm #

    My goodness. I love pizza as a delicious way to use up odds and ends in the kitchen, but I never would have thought of this combination. Looks amazing. Maybe I’ll have to splurge on pine nuts soon…

  13. November 11, 2011 at 4:13 pm #

    Sounds amazing…Ummm, except for the artichokes though! But it’s worth a try!

  14. November 11, 2011 at 5:07 pm #

    This sounds absolutely wonderful! I’ll have to try it for myself.

  15. November 11, 2011 at 6:26 pm #

    Tried it and loved it!

    • November 11, 2011 at 6:27 pm #

      i’m so glad! it is a great recipe and so easy to throw together 🙂

  16. November 11, 2011 at 6:49 pm #

    Yum! I frequently have these ingredients, but would have never thought to use them this way! Fancy-pants pizza. Love it.

    I’m cheap, and frequently use left-over pita bread instead of the traditional crust. I’ll definitely be giving this combo a go (with the pita substitution).

  17. November 11, 2011 at 6:52 pm #

    Love your blog and I am new follower, as well as a new blogger and I must say…….Oh my gosh! That looks amazing and all the things I love! I am definitely going to make this!

  18. November 11, 2011 at 7:05 pm #

    What a wonderful idea, and also, it totally has the right kind of stimulating flavours for perking someone up in the wintertime.

  19. November 11, 2011 at 7:39 pm #

    This looks so delicious! Have you made any other unique pizza combinations?

    • November 11, 2011 at 7:55 pm #

      kathy, i have an old shrimp on the grill pizza and then check out today’s post, i just posted it. 🙂 enjoy!

  20. November 11, 2011 at 8:11 pm #

    Hmm – this can be a use
    for those pickeled roasted
    artichokes I’ve been wondering
    what to to do with.

  21. November 11, 2011 at 8:13 pm #

    yum!

  22. November 11, 2011 at 8:21 pm #

    Unusual combination…I make my own dessert pizzas/focaccias. It’s always good to try different combos.

  23. November 11, 2011 at 8:51 pm #

    That looks delicious. A nice glass of Mascato would go great with this!

  24. November 11, 2011 at 9:49 pm #

    That sounds super! And it includes some of my favorite things! (ie stuff I probably shouldn’t eat, hehe). Great photos too!

  25. November 11, 2011 at 10:15 pm #

    Mmmm! This sounds wonderful!

  26. November 11, 2011 at 10:57 pm #

    That looks great!

  27. November 11, 2011 at 11:43 pm #

    I’m broke, but I’m heading out of my tiny French apartment to visit the markets, and I’m going to use my tiny French kitchen with no oven to attempt to make this amazing pizza using an electric stove that takes an hour twenty to heat up, a microwave and no knife… wish me luck everyone… things are going to get cavegirl-delicious!

  35. November 12, 2011 at 7:47 am #

    Interesting – I’ve had scarring experiences with gorgonzola!

  36. November 12, 2011 at 10:39 am #

    I say this with LOVE…you are just strange! 🙂 But I like it! Congrats on being FP!

    • November 12, 2011 at 6:41 pm #

      i take it as a compliment, who wants to be like everyone else 🙂 now, if i was only hip enough to know what FP stands for… 🙂

      • November 12, 2011 at 9:58 pm #

        FP= Freshly Pressed my friend! You were deemed worthy! 🙂

      • November 13, 2011 at 6:31 am #

        thanks for letting me know, someone else mentioned that too, so i started looking for where it says that i was chosen for that. still can’t find it, but i’ll take it. craziness on the blog the past 3 days. i normally only have family and a few friends/clients who check out my blog on a daily basis, so it’s been great being able to reach more people and feel like i’m not just doing this for myself 🙂 anyway, hopefully you enjoy the pizza 🙂 take care

  41. November 12, 2011 at 7:03 pm #

    These flavours sound so delicious together!! I love gorgonzola and your photos are so appetising – I might have to try this out in the very near future… Congratulations on being Freshly Pressed!

    • November 12, 2011 at 7:18 pm #

      thank you! it is a great meal, easy and quick. i’m trying to find where it says i am “freshly pressed”…does it show up somewhere on my dashboard i wonder?

  42. November 12, 2011 at 7:17 pm #

    this looks amazing!

  43. November 12, 2011 at 7:46 pm #

    looks really good, hopefully i can make it

    • November 12, 2011 at 8:39 pm #

      this is really easy to make. the pre-made crust is a great cheat and time saver. almost everything else comes out of a can 🙂 enjoy it!

  44. November 12, 2011 at 8:32 pm #

    I read the name of your Pizza to Hubz and he said “TONIGHT?” In a voice that resembled a 5 year old that was just told we were going to Disneyland 🙂 I cannot wait to try this!!

    • November 12, 2011 at 8:38 pm #

      it is very easy and so very good. i hope your hubby enjoys it! let me know 🙂

  45. November 12, 2011 at 9:35 pm #

    YUMMY!! That looks good.

  48. November 13, 2011 at 4:14 am #

    Can’t imagine apples on pizza but that looks super delicious, thanks for sharing!

  49. November 13, 2011 at 4:22 am #

    Did you use red or green apples? Green might give a nice tangy twist to the recipe. 🙂

    • November 13, 2011 at 6:33 am #

      i believe when i made this i had a bunch of gala apples left in the house, but i would definitely make it with granny smith or honey crisp the next time 🙂

  50. November 13, 2011 at 12:07 pm #

    Nice pizza

  51. November 13, 2011 at 3:00 pm #

    Looks delicious!!!!

  52. November 13, 2011 at 3:34 pm #

    I’m gonna try it…

  53. November 13, 2011 at 3:42 pm #

    Eek. What a combo! How did you think of that?

    • November 13, 2011 at 4:54 pm #

      i actually saw a recipe for a pizza with pears and gorgonzola, i just happened to have these items in the house 🙂 it’s really good 🙂

    November 13, 2011 at 5:27 pm #

    I wonder how that taste ?

  56. November 13, 2011 at 5:27 pm #

    This looks delicious! I can’t wait to make it 🙂

  57. November 13, 2011 at 5:42 pm #

  61. November 14, 2011 at 3:34 am #

    Clever clever clever!! The marriage of these ingredients is beautiful and I love the use of fruit in savoury recipes!

  62. November 14, 2011 at 4:50 am #

    To steal or not to steal…
    Stealing.
    This one’s a must try in my messy old beginner’s kitchen. :]
    Might try cooking this one for host family!
    Kudos to you.

  72. November 22, 2011 at 12:01 am #

    LOoks yummy and easy. I love your honey, lemon juice and Dijon sauce 🙂
