    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4-6

    Yield:

    pizza

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Trim off and discard the root ends and the dark green portion of the leeks.
    2. 2
      Cut them in half lengthwise and discard the toughest outer layers.
    3. 3
      Rinse thoroughly between the layers to remove any grit.
    4. 4
      Pat the leeks dry and slice them crosswise into thin shreds.
    5. 5
      Preheat the broiler.
    6. 6
      Melt the butter in a heavy saute pan and add the leeks, rosemary, and salt.
    7. 7
      Saute, stirring occasionally, until tender and nicely browned, about 6 to 8 minutes. Add the sherry and stir until the liquid dissolves.
    8. 8
      Slice the pear in half lengthwise and cut out the core section.
    9. 9
      Slice each half thinly and gently toss the slices with the lemon juice.
    10. 10
      Transfer the leeks to the pizza crust and spread them out evenly, leaving about a 1-inch border all around the outside free of topping.
    11. 11
      Arrange the sliced pears in a single layer on top of the leeks.
    12. 12
      Evenly distribute the blue cheese over the pears.
    13. 13
      Sprinkle on the paprika.
    14. 14
      Bake the pizza 4 inches from the broiler until the cheese is bubbly and lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
    15. 15
      Cut into wedges and serve.

      I rate it 3 stars because the bake/broil instructions were confusing to me. The instructions said to preheat the broiler and bake 4-inches from the broiler for about 10 minutes ~ The recipe had no oven temperature to bake, so I broiled! I knew 4-inches was too close and would burn if broiled for 10 minutes. I set my timer for FIVE MINUTES and broiled my pizza TEN INCHES from the broiler element, but I didn't stand and watch as I should have! Next time I will spread the toppings to the edge, and I will watch the broiler! :) Or, maybe I'll bake it directly on the rack (not in a pan), in a preheated 375F oven til the blue cheese melts! This deserves 5 stars for flavor combination ~ I LOVED the leeks, rosemary, sherry, pears, and blue cheese together!
