What you Need to Make Pear Gorgonzola Pizza

To start, this Pear Gorgonzola Pizza recipe calls for 2 flatbreads, specifically Flatout Flatbreads. The flatbread comes in Spicy Italian, Rosemary Olive Oil and my choice for this pizza, Rustic White – the perfect pearing for this grown up pizza.

The Flatout Flatbreads are wonderfully thin so they bake up super quickly with the perfect amount of crispy.  Whenever you have a pizza craving, simply throw your favorite toppings on your favorite flavor of flatbread and bake for 6 minutes – and you have your an appetizer, snack or meal in minutes with only one pan !

How to make Pear Gorgonzola Pizza 

This Pear Gorgonzola Pizza recipe, on the other hand, not quite as simple, but every bit as easy and eat-your-whole-flatbread-in-one-sitting-delicious.  To make this Flatbread, simply bake your Flatout Flatbreads for 2 minutes then spread with brie cheese and smother in pesto.  That alone would be amazing.  But it gets better…

arrived.

If you have never made balsamic reduction, you have been sitting on liquid gold and didn’t even know it!  As the balsamic vinegar reduces with some brown sugar, it becomes less acidity, more sweet and one of the most concentrated flavors of YUM you will ever taste.

Tip for Pear Gorgonzola Pizza

  • You can substitute the flatbread with naan or storebought or homemade pizza dough.
  • I love the addition of strawberries, but alternatively you can use more pears or raspberries.
  • Let the brie sit at room temperature while you prepare your other ingredients so it will spread easier. You can also microwave it for a few seconds to soften.
  • You will want to have all your toppings diced and ready so you can immediately drizzle with Balsamic Reduction because it will thicken and harden as it sits.
  • The pistachios add a wonderfully salty crunch. Bacon would also be a delicious substitution.
  • Although this is Pear GORGONZOLA Pizza, you may substitute the Gorgonzola for feta for less of a bite.

Ingredients

  • 2 Rustic White Flatout Flatbreads
  • 8 oz brie cheese, rind removed, room temperature*
  • 1/4 cup pesto
  • 1 pear, thinly sliced
  • 1/8 red onion, very thinly sliced
  • 1 cup strawberries, diced
  • 1/4 cup Gorgonzola (may sub feta)
  • 1/2 cup basil, loosely packed, chiffonade**
  • 2 tablespoon crushed pistachios
  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Bake flatbreads on a baking sheet for 2 minutes.
  • Spread brie cheese evenly over flatbreads (it doesn’t have to be perfect because it will melt), and top with an even layer of pesto followed by red onions and pears. Bake for 4 minutes then remove from oven.
  • Meanwhile add balsamic vinegar and brown sugar to a small nonstick skillet (you can use a sauce pan but it will take longer to reduce). Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer just until the consistency of syrup. Remove from heat. If Reduction thickens before you use it, then reheat in the pan.
  • Top flatbreads with strawberries, Gorgonzola, pistachios and basil then drizzle with desired amount of Balsamic Reduction.

Notes

NOTE: Ingredients listed are for 2 flatbreads, so divide ingredients evenly when topping flatbreads.
*Let the brie sit at room temperature while you prepare your other ingredients so it will spread easier. You can also microwave it for a few seconds to soften.
You will want to have all your toppings diced and ready so you can immediately drizzle with Balsamic Reduction because it will thicken and harden as it sits.
***The pistachios add a wonderfully salty crunch. Bacon would also be a delicious substitution.

    Hi Jen! I love using flat breads – the toppings are endless! This sounds delicious, I can’t wait until fresh strawberries are in season! The last flat breads I made were were creamy blue cheese and thinly sliced steak and they were quite tasty!
