Directions

  1. Defrost the pizza dough and follow instructions on package for making a 12" pizza crust. Make sure ball is thoroughly defrosted and has had time to rest (about 1/2 hour in a bowl) as it will make the dough more elastic and easier to form into a pizza crust.
  2. Dust with flour and roll out dough into a circle. Put on a pizza pan and brush whole crust with a layer of olive oil.
  3. Sprinkle dough with garlic salt and Parmesan cheese.
  4. In a preheated oven (400°F) put the pizza crust into the oven and let bake for 5 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, melt butter and about 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a non-stick skillet on medium heat.
  6. Slice pear into thin slices. Gently sauté pear slices and walnuts for about 3-5 minutes until the pears begin to caramelize.
  7. Take crust out of the oven after baking for 5 minutes and sprinkles with mozzarella.
  8. Arrange pears and walnuts all over the top of the pizza and crumble the entire wedge of blue cheese on top of the pear and walnut mixture.
  9. Bake for an additional 8-10 minutes or until the cheese melts and the crust is browned.
  10. Lightly drizzle honey over the whole pizza and serve.
  11. Garnish with a sprinkle of finely chopped flat leaf parsley (optional).
  12. ***Added flavor: Fry some bacon until crispy and crumble real bacon bits over the top! My family loves the addition of the bacon.
