Pear, Blue Cheese, Pecan Pizza

Hello all!  It’s been a crazy busy holiday season, but I’m finally getting around to a new post.  I was in the mood for another “different” pizza for lunch today so I threw this together.  I had seen a recipe for pear pizza in an issue of Cooking Light, but when I went to look for it today I couldn’t find it.  So I made this from memory, or as much as I could remember.  It is very similar to the Apple Gorgonzola Pizza post I did a couple months ago and I also stole the sauce drizzle from that recipe to drizzle over this pizza again today.  It just really gives it a great tangy taste.  And once again, I ate half the pizza myself in one sitting, licking the plate clean at the end.  Yummmmyyyyyy!!!

1 Boboli thin pizza crust

1 T olive oil

1/4 c grated Parmesan cheese

1 can artichoke hearts

1 can mushroom pieces

1/4 cup pecan bits

1 pear, pealed and sliced

1 c blue cheese crumbles

1 lime, juiced

2 T Dijon mustard

3 T honey

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Brush olive oil on crust.  Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over crust.  Arrange artichoke hearts and mushrooms over pizza.  Arrange pear slices around pizza.  Sprinkle with blue cheese crumbles.  Sprinkle with pecan bits.  Bake for 20 minutes or until cooked through.  While baking, mix the juice of one lime, the mustard and honey, whisking until well mixed.  When pizza is done, slice and plate.  Once plated, drizzle the honey mustard sauce over pizza.  ENJOY!  This is a great, easy, quick dinner!

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….
