Mmmm, pizza

But different. Try apple, rosemary, blue cheese, and walnut pizza. Sounds odd, tastes great. This is based on a recipe in our share newsletter a couple of weeks ago.

Apple, Blue Cheese, and Walnut Pizza

The original recipe appears in Dishing Up Vermont by Tracey Medeiros. I've modified by not measuring and using a different crust.

Pizza dough (I used 2 c white bread flour and 1 c whole wheat pastry flour that made 2 pizzas, this and another more traditional pizza)

1 large apple, unpeeled, cored, and cut into 1/8 inch slices
3/4 cup crumbled blue cheese (3 oz)
1/2 - 3/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese (2-3 ounces) - I used mozzarella
1 1/2 tsp chopped fresh rosemary, or 3/4 tsp dried
1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 500F and place pizza stone into bottom of the oven.

Roll half the dough to a 13-inch circle on parchment paper. Bake the crust for approximately 10 minutes, or until it just begins to brown. Cover the crust with apple slices, cheeses, rosemary, walnuts to taste. Bake an additional 10-12 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned.

Ben and I loved it, Sam tried it and ended up waiting for the more traditional pepperoni pizza.

Look! I remembered to take a picture.

The picture looks great. I'd have waited with Sam, and fought him for the least piece! I've have offered tv in the morning as a trade.
