Gorgonzola Pear Pizza


Gorgonzola, caramelized onions, pears, pesto, and chicken. What could be a better combination? This pizza is sweet and savory all at the same time. It's one of my favorites for sure! This pizza is great sliced into little slivers and served as an appetizer.


2 ripe pears, sliced
1 yellow onion, sliced and caramelized
1 1/2 cups of pesto
1 cup of rotisserie chicken, chopped
1 cup of creamy gorgonzola


Prepare your pizza crust. Roll out your crust onto a cookie sheet or a pizza stone. In a small sauce pan caramelize your sliced onion on med heat with a small amount of olive oil, for about 20 minutes. Add your pesto as the sauce for your pie. Top with gorgonzola, caramelized onion, chicken and your sliced pear. Pop your pizza into the oven and bake at 425˙ until the bottom of your pie is golden brown. I then like to put my oven on broil and brown the top of my pizza, this only takes 2 to 3 minutes.
Remove from the oven




  1. This looks good and easy! Gotta try it!

  2. This looks fantastic! Better than most Pizzarias! :)

  3. OMG this looks delicious... we love to try different pizzas now and then. Will have to try it. Hugs xxx

  4. That looks and sounds AMAZING! Boy do I ever want to try it. I guess it wouldn't be quite as good with regular ol' grilled chicken breast, but I might give that a try. Thanks!
