TRGWT 18: Plum Pizza with Gorgonzola and Pine Nuts

For those of you who have been with me from the very beginning, this pizza recipe is a repeat. However, I've been asked to submit this recipe to TGRWT 18 (they go together really well contest) and am happy to do so :)

This is really a great and easy recipe, and with plums widely available right now, I hope you give it a try.

Ingredients
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1 red onion, thinly sliced
1 T balsamic vinegar
pizza crust
a handfull of pine nuts, toasted
2 plums, cut in half and thinly sliced
1/2 cup Gorgonzola

Directions
1) Preheat the oven to 450.
2) Heat olive oil and butter in a pan, add onions and cook for about 10 minutes, adding balsamic vinegar in the last two minutes.
3) Meantime, bake your pizza crust according to directions (or use store-bought prepared crust).
4) Remove the pizza from the oven and brush it with additional olive oil and top with onions, plums, Gorgonzola and pine nuts. Put pizza back into the oven and bake for about 7 minutes until the cheese has melted and the pine nuts are golden brown.
5) Let the pizza stand for a few minutes before cutting into it.


P.S. It was interesting to look back and see how I used to write recipes versus how I do it now. Now all my ingredients are in the order they are used instead of just being written haphazardly. I definitely see improvement, even if I say so myself :)

I bet the plums and Gorgonzola really go well together. Gorgonzola is one of my favorite cheeses!

Oh I they would go together really really well! Yum!! I am still pretty haphazard and write my ingredients as I think of them. I need to get a bit more organized myself.

We love the pear and Gorgonzola combo in other applications, but I've never tried it on a pizza. You've got me thinking.
