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….
