Pear and blue cheese pizza

4 pizzas


  • 250 g (445 ml) cake flour
  • 250 g (445 ml) bread flour
  • 1 sachet (10 g) instant yeast
  • 5 ml sugar
  • 2 ml salt
  • about 375 ml lukewarm water

Mix cake flour, bread flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a mixing bowl. Add enough lukewarm water to form a dough. It mustn’t be too stiff. Knead for 10 minutes on a floured surface. Put dough in a clean mixing bowl and coat in a little olive oil. Cover with cling wrap and keep in a warm place. Allow dough to double in volume. This can take upwards of an hour. Knock down the dough and quarter. Roll 4 circles, about 3 mm thick. Heat a griddle pan and fry each circle on both sides until cooked through.


  • 1 bottle (300 g) onion marmalade
  • 2 Forelle pears, cut into wedges
  • 150 g blue cheese or 125 g brie, cut into wedges or cubes
  • big handful fresh rocket
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • olive oil for sprinkling

Spread a nice thick layer of onion marmalade on each pizza base. Arrange pears and cheese on top and sprinkle with rocket. Season with black pepper and sprinkle with olive oil.
