Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 large sweet onion
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 -8 small pita bread
  • 3 large pears, ripe but firm
  • 18 teaspoon salt
  • fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 -3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh thyme, divided
  • 12 lb gruyere (you can also use a mixture of your favourite cheeses, grated.) or 12 lb emmenthaler cheese (you can also use a mixture of your favourite cheeses, grated.)


  1. Peel and thinly slice onion. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat, add onions. Lower heat as needed and saute, stirring often for 15-20 minutes or until wilted and golden.
  2. Peel, core and thinly slice pears. When onions are golden, stir in salt and pepper; remove from pan.
  3. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  4. Add butter to pan; return to medium heat.
  5. When bubbly, add pears and saute for 8-12 minutes, turning frequently until softened and lightly browned. Cool on plate.
  6. Lay out your pitas, and spread a small amount of grated cheese on each.
  7. Dividing equally, spread each round with onion, then add pear and thyme. Top with remaining cheese, and a little more freshly ground black pepper.
  8. Bake 10-12 minutes, or until pizzettes are golden. Serve right away, whole or cut in half topped with a sprinkling of thyme.
