Gorgonzola, Pear & Almond Pizza

This pizza is so unique, you won’t believe it. It is for serious pizza lovers and foodies only. If you have a pizza party, serve it last, since it has that sweet/salty/crunchy texture that would be a perfect finish. Just make sure you leave room; it’s definitely rich! The toppings are for a 12″ pizza; no need to measure, just eyeball it. Oh and our family always uses kitchen shears to cut the pizza – so much easier!

3/4 cup marscapone cheese
1/2 pound gorgonzola cheese
1 medium firm but ripe pear
6 oz. shredded fontina cheese
6 oz. sliced almonds
1 pizza crust

Preheat the oven to 450.

Place pizza crust on a baking sheet. Spread marscapone on crust up to 1/2 inch from the edge. Crumble gorgonzola on top. Halve, peel and core the pear. Cut lengthwise into thin slices, and arrange them on top of the pizza, gently pressing them down. Scatter the fontina and almonds on top.

Bake the pizza until the cheese is melted, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and cut into slices.
