A while ago Jon and I went to a get together at our friends Brett and Lisa’s house where they had a pizza making party. Now Lisa started making this pizza and I won’t share her recipe because that is hers but everyone at the party thought she was nuts just adding fruit to the dough as the sauce. But after her pizza was done let’s just say it was the star of the party. We could not get enough of that pizza. So this pizza is an inspiration of mine from that pizza.
So long after the party I keep thinking about that pizza and how I could build my own. So here is the creation I came up with.
I started out really wanting to make my own dough but I didn’t have time the night I made this. I used Pillsbury pizza dough but promise me when you make this you will use homemade dough.
Then I took my mandolin and sliced the pear thin. This is the first layer. This is your sauce. I know crazy right but trust me.
Then I took dried figs and sliced them into small pieces. Now in the summer I would use fresh figs but it is winter and I could not find one fresh fig. Take the fig pieces and spread them out over the pears slices.
Now take one package of prosciutto and lay the pieces all over the pizza.
Sprinkle the gorgonzola cheese over the entire pizza.
Bake in oven according to your pizza dough directions for 15 minutes.
Then drizzle reduced Balsamic vinegar over the pizza and then enjoy.
It might sound like a strange combination but trust me. Jon was quite pleased with this creation. It will be made many more times in our house.
