    My Private Note



    12-inch ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 cup white balsamic vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
    • 1 large firm ripe pear, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/4 inch thick slices
    • 2 (10 ounce) pizza dough, for two 12-inch pizzas
    • 1/2 cup crumbled gorgonzola
    • 4 -6 slices prosciutto, very thin slices


    1. 1
      *30 minutes to 1 hour before you plan to bake your pizzas, place oven rack on the lowest level and arrange a stone or tiles on top; heat oven to maximum temperature—500°.
    2. 2
      The Pizza: add vinegar to a small saucepan; bring to a simmer over medium-low heat.
    3. 3
      Cook, swirling the pan occasionally, until the syrup is reduced and thickened and resembles honey, about 10 minutes; let cool (the syrup can be made ahead to this point).
    4. 4
      If it becomes too firm as it cools, simply reheat it with a few drops of water, or microwave it for 10 seconds.
    5. 5
      In a small skillet, heat the butter over medium heat; add the pear slices and cook until tender, about 5 minutes.
    6. 6
      Place 1 ball of dough on a floured surface; press out dough, lifting it and turning it over several times, until it reaches a 12-inch circle; do not knead dough or handle more than is necessary; if dough seems too sticky, dust it lightly with flour.
    7. 7
      Dust a pizza peel; carefully transfer the circle of dough to the peel, reshaping as needed.
    8. 8
      Shake the peel once or twice to make sure the dough does not stick; if it does, lift the dough and sprinkle the peel with more flour.
    9. 9
      Arrange half the pears on the shaped dough; scatter half the cheese on top; drizzle with half the vinegar syrup.
    10. 10
      Slide pizza onto prepared baking stone (in oven); after the pizza is on the stone, do not attempt to move it until it firms up in 2-3 minutes.
    11. 11
      Bake for 6-7 minutes, or until the crust is browned; remove pizza from the oven and arrange the prosciutto slices on top; cut into wedges and serve immediately.
    12. 12
      Make a second pizza with the remaining ingredients.
