A gorgonzola, pumpkin and pear pizza. It really is the perfect, savory pizza for fall.
I’m not really into pumpkin spice anything. You can have your PSL – it means more mint mochas for me! But I DO love actual pumpkin, especially pumpkin in savory dishes, like this pizza. Sweet pumpkin? Meh. Spicy, savory, or cheesy pumpkin? Yes please.
Pizza is such an easy weeknight meal, and this recipe is one of our favorites. Sometimes I’ll top it with a simple salad of arugula tossed with olive oil, balsamic, salt and pepper to make a pizza salad. Or, it’s really tasty served with a side of roasted Brussels sprouts, like my maple miso roasted Brussels sprouts.
To make this pizza, I usually pick up refrigerated dough from the deli aisle. Occasionally if I’m feeling fancy, I’ll make no-knead pizza dough, usually with a mixture of white and whole wheat flour. It’s so easy to make! While the caramelized onions take a little time, everything else takes just 10 minutes.
