Prosciutto Pear & Gorgonzola Pizza

As a child, pizza nights were one of my favourites. My mom would set out all sorts of ingredients and my brother, sister and I could build our own pizza as we saw fit. This naturally meant that my pizza ended up with far too much pepperoni, and nary a veggie in sight. To date, pizza nights still hold a special place in my heart. I love how it doesn’t take a ton of prep work, and you can really get creative with the toppings. Earlier this week, Justin and I threw together this prosciutto, pear & gorgonzola pizza and it is now one of my very favourite combinations. Check out what to do below.

what you’ll need:
::pizza dough (homemade, or purchased for $1.95 at your local pizza shop or bakery)
::a drizzle of olive oil
::1 c. good quality mozzarella
::8-10 slices of prosciutto (ask the butcher to slice it very thin)
::1/2 a pear, thinly sliced
::a handful of crumbled gorgonzola (to your liking)
::a handful of walnuts
::a drizzle of honey

what you’ll do:
::spread your pizza dough out on your flour lined pan (or pizza stone if you have one! I highly recommend you get one of these)
::drizzle the dough with olive oil
::add the toppings: mozzarella, prosciutto, pear, gorgonzola, walnuts
::drizzle with honey
::top with sea salt and some cracked black pepper (to cut the sweetness)
::bake at 400F for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown
