Home Made Pizza with Pear Prosciutto Caramelised Onion

Posted 2018-07-07 by finyfollow

This pizza was delicious and unusual.

With pears, blue cheese and caramelised onion, once the base is made, this is a quick recipe.

This dough makes enough for two pizzas, however, I froze one lot and only used one, so the ingredients for the topping is for one pizza only.

Preparation Time: 30 minutes plus proofing
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Serves: 1 - 2 people

For the dough
1 tbsp active yeast
2 tsp sugar
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp olive oil
1 cup water
For the topping
1 red onion, finely sliced
1½ tbsp olive oil
1 pears, finely sliced
4 slices Prosciutto
40 g blue cheese, crumbled (no more)
Handful of rocket leaves, optional

For the dough
  • Mix the flour with the yeast, sugar and salt.

  • Mix the oil with the lukewarm water and add it slowly to flour.

  • Knead the dough for about 10 minutes or until it is well mixed.

  • Let it sit in a covered bowl in a warm place until it has doubled in size - this will about about 1½ hours, or depending on the heat.

  • Punch it down and let it rise again for about 30 minutes before using it.

  • For the topping
  • Cook the onion in oil in a small frypan until it is soft. Keep cooking on a slow heat for about 10 minutes or until it is caramelised.

  • Preheat the oven to 250°/230° fan forced. If using a pizza stone, heat it before putting the pizza on it.

  • Divide the dough into two halves and either make two pizzas, or freeze one.

  • Roll it out onto a baking tray that is either lightly floured, or put baking paper on it.

  • Spread half the onion mixture onto the base, then add half the sliced pear

  • Add the prosciutto, and blue cheese.

  • Add the remaining onions.
  • Ready to bake

  • Bake for about 12 minutes or until it is cooked and crisp looking.

  • Take out of the oven, cut and add the rocket leaves, if using.

  • This can be heated in the oven the next day also.
