Yum – your taste buds will thank you when you make this Pear Gorgonzola Flatbread. And you might want to make it pronto! Recently we went out to dinner with the “kids” at a local restaurant called The Yard House. While we were deciding what tasty beverages we wanted, our SIL ordered a pear gorgonzola flatbread for us to munch on. We all loved it and knew I could come close to making it at home.
I loved especially loved the tanginess of the cheese with the pear. In this version, I brushed a bit of fig jam on the crust to give it an extra sweetness. It was perfect! I’ll give you a little tip. If you can’t find a flatbread, buy a thin crust pizza and either use it as is OR cut it into a rectangle. That’s what I did since my store was out of what I really wanted.
- 1 flatbread (about 8×15) or a round pizza crust (thin)
- 1/2 cup gorgonzola cheese
- 1 medium ripe pear cut into 1/16″ slices (I used a mandolin)
- 3 tablespoons fig jam
- 2 tablespoons sliced green onions
- olive oil
- Place a pizza stone in over and preheat 375 (if you don’t have stone, use a cookie sheet but don’t preheat it)
- Brush flatbread with olive oil
- Heat the jam in microwave until it is a bit liquified then brush on flatbread, leave chunks of jam on flatbread
- Place pear on top then top with gorgonzola
- Sprinkle with green onions
- Season with salt and pepper
- Place flatbread on stone and bake for 10-12 minutes until crispy
- Remove and cool slightly
As mentioned, I used my mandolin. These are super sharp! But I loved that I could get paper thin slices of the pear. Just be mindful of what you are doing!
So, on your menu soon?
