Pear, Mushroom, & Prosciutto Pizza

28 Jun

So it’s Saturday and you might be having one of those “My-girls-are-coming-over-to-drink-wine-but-I-need-to-make-a-classy-pizza-so-at-least-I-look-like-a-classy-lush” pizzas, this one is for you.  Seriously, this pizza makes you seem like you know way more about pizza than you probably do.  It’s sweet and salty and just generally delicious.  Indulgent enough to make you Insta-famous in your circle of friends, but not indulgent enough that you feel guilty about it. 🙂

Pear-Mushroom-Prosciutto-Arugula-Blue-Cheese-Pizza


Pear, Mushroom, & Prosciutto Pizza (recipe by Yummy Addiction)

  • 2 T. unsalted butter
  • 1/2 semi-ripe pear, sliced very thin
  • 1 t. honey
  • 6 cremini mushrooms, steps removed and sliced thin
  • 1 c. shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 3 oz. Prosciutto, torn into pieces
  • 1/2 c. crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 handfuls baby arugula
  • this pizza crust (or store bought)

Preheat the oven to 400*F.

Heat the butter in a medium skillet over medium heat.  When melted, reduce the heat to low and add the pear slices.  When they begin to get softened, add the honey and a pinch of salt and continue to cook until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.  When they are ready, remove them from the pan and add the mushrooms to the same pan.  Cook until the mushrooms are slightly browned.

Brush the pizza crust with olive oil, then sprinkle the mozzarella cheese evenly.  Add the pears and mushrooms, then put the prosciutto on top of that.  Sprinkle the blue cheese crumbles on the very top and bake for about 20 minutes.  When the pizza is done, top with the arugula and serve.

I recommend a Pino Grigio if you were wondering – cheers! 🙂
