My Grilled Pizza: Pear & Gorgonzola Charmer

Updated: Jun 19


There’s a certain magic in recreating a dish from a memorable meal, especially when it transports you back to a special place. This Pear Grilled Pizza is inspired by a delightful brunch I had at a French restaurant, where I first tasted a similar flavor profile on a tarte flambée base.



Captivated by the blend of sweet pear, tangy fromage blanc, and bold gorgonzola, I decided to reimagine this dish using a homemade grilled pizza base, transforming it into a culinary adventure that's both familiar and refreshingly new.



In this recipe, the creamy mixture of crème fraîche and fromage blanc creates a luxurious foundation for the thinly sliced pears and rich gorgonzola, each ingredient adding its own unique note to the symphony of flavors.


The process of grilling the pizza dough adds a delightful smokiness and a crisp texture that contrasts beautifully with the toppings. As the pizza comes off the griddle, it’s finished with fresh baby spinach and crunchy walnuts, introducing a wonderful balance of textures and a burst of freshness that elevates the whole experience.



I encourage you to try making this grilled pizza in your own kitchen. It’s a fantastic way to enjoy a gourmet meal without the need for a reservation, and the process of grilling your own pizza is as rewarding as it is delicious.


Whether you’re looking to impress guests or simply treat yourself to a refined yet rustic meal, this pear and gorgonzola pizza promises to deliver satisfaction and a touch of culinary elegance. So why not bring a little piece of that French restaurant charm into your home with this delectable recipe?


 

Ingredients:

(Make 2 grilled pizzas)

  • Crème Fraîche / Yogurt, 60g

  • Fromage Blanc / Ricotta Homemade, 80g

  • Garlic Finely Grated, 1 Clove

  • Seal Salt, Pinch

  • Black Pepper, Pinch

  • Grilled Pizza Dough Homemade, 2 Dough Balls

  • Sesame Oil, For Brushing

  • Pear Cored Thinly Sliced, 1

  • Gorgonzola / Blue Cheese, A Few Crumbles

  • Baby Spinach, A Handful

Directions:

  1. Please visit my "Grilled Pizza Dough" page for the recipe.

  2. In a mixing bowl, add crème fraîche, fromage blanc and garlic.

  3. Season with salt and pepper.

  4. Mix until well combined. Set aside in the fridge until ready to use.

  5. Once you have rolled out your pizza dough, brush the griddle with sesame oil with a pastry brush.

  6. *Remember to use a fork and gently poke all over. This is crucial as it will prevent the crust to puff up.*

  7. In a griddle over medium heat, gently place in the dough.

  8. Carefully and gently, use your hands to press down the dough to make sure the whole dough sits fully on the griddle.

  9. Brush the top with more sesame oil.

  10. Grill until lightly charred.

  11. Flip the dough.

  12. Immediately turn the heat down to medium-low.

  13. Top the pizza with the crème fraîche mixture, spreading it out evenly.

  14. Immediately cover the griddle to generate steam.

  15. As soon as the crème fraîche mixture melts and the bottom is lightly charred, remove the cover.

  16. Remove the pizza from the heat and transfer it onto a serving plate.

  17. Distribute pear, gorgonzola, spinach and walnuts evenly onto the pizza.

  18. Drizzle some extra virgin olive oil over the top.

  19. Repeat the steps for the remaining pizza.

  20. Slice and serve immediately.


The perfect bite doesn't exist...


Wait, it does...
