Pear, ham and gorgonzola cheese, the recipe to surprise your family
After using these ingredients to prepare a magnificent sandwich and days later prepare with them the pear, gorgonzola and bacon risotto that we liked so much, today we wanted to try this same combination in pizza format. And here is the result, a pizza pear, prosciutto and gorgonzola I recommend for this weekend if you want to surprise the family.
If I had to keep one of the three recipes, I was going to have a really hard time, since the simple sandwich, the creamy risotto, and the crunchy pizza are good arguments. The best thing is that you try all three and you decide because it is a magnificent combination of ingredients.

We start preparing the pizza dough, kneading the ingredients and letting them stand for 30 minutes in the fridge. Then we stretch the pizza dough with a rolling pin and start preparing its filling.
As it is a pizza with fruit, we will not put tomato but we will leave it blank. We place a small layer of mozzarella cheese to make it juicier and on it, we distribute the peeled pear and cut into 6 or 7 pieces.
In the spaces between the pieces of pear, we put slices of ham and next to each one we put a gorgonzola cheese stick , leaving another good stick in the central area of the pizza. Meanwhile, we will have preheated the oven to 240ºC.
Bake the pizza until the edges of the dough are well roasted and crispy and the different cheeses are bubbling. Five minutes before finishing, we varnish the pear pieces with palm honey to enhance their sweet taste. Before serving, we decorate the pizza with tender arugula sprouts and sprinkle with oregano.
