Pizza is something so simple and tasty that it never really fails us.
It's something we turn to time and time again when we're in the mood for some comfort food and if you make it at home, it's even tastier.
Think it's too complicated? You'll be shocked at how easy it is, especially when you take a few short cuts!
This simple yet delicious recipe of homemade pizza with caramelised pear with blue cheese, rocket and pecan nuts will have you deleting your local Italian from your phone.
Using traditional Italian Da Piero pizza base and just as little as five ingredients, it's a revelation.
Preheat your oven to 250C so it's nice and hot for your pizza.
Place the Da Piero pizza base on top of the oven rack or a pizza tray with holes on counter top. Make sure to use either an oven tray or pizza tray with holes in it, as otherwise, the underneath of the pizza base may not cook fully.
Peel and slice your pears into thick slices.
Prepare the pears in a saucepan and caramelise with butter and brown sugar until they're well coated with the mixture.
Place the pear slices evenly around the pizza base.
Next, chop up chunks of Roquefort or Cashel blue cheese and distribute evenly around the pizza for maximum cheesy goodness.
Throw on a small amount - approximately 25g - of toasted pecan nuts atop your pizza.
Cook the pizza for about 5 mins. Make sure to check on the pizza after 4 minutes to make sure it’s not overcooking. It doesn't take very long!
Once your pizza is cooked to your taste, slice it up and throw on some fresh rocket for an added fresh touch.
Can you really go wrong?
5 mins preparation, 5 mins cooking, and you're satisfied for the whole evening.
The best thing is because you've made it yourself, you know exactly what went into it and you customise your toppings to how you like.
You'll never want to order in again.
