Remember the post about not being able to eat normal pizza? I'm starting to think that is not a problem at all and tomato sauce is just a distraction from the great toppings. We found another winner for the no-tomato sauce pizza. Caramelized onions, pear, and gorgonzola cheese.
My friend Jacqi recommended it to us when she was visiting. She said she used to make it twice a week and until her boyfriend got sick of it. After tasting it, I can see why twice a week would seem like the right thing to do, because it is the most delicious pizza.
We were lucky to get local pears and a big hunk of Hook's gorgonzola from our farmer's market. The crust came from the Willy St. Co-Op after my attempt at pizza dough making flopped (for the first time ever, not sure what went wrong!).
There is no recipe for this pizza because its literally just this: make a lot of caramelized onions, spread them on the dough. Slice some pears thinly and spread them around. Put chunks of gorgonzola all over. Bake and then hide in your room eating the whole thing yourself because you won't want to share.
But I did share... and Kristen thought it was delicious too.
