Gorgonzola & Caramelized Onion Pizza Recipe

This elegant combination makes a charming lunch with an endive salad. Gorgonzola is made in two varieties: a creamy and softer Gorgonzola Dolce, and a tangier, harder, stronger, more blue-veined Gorgonzola that is aged for a longer period (shown in the photo below). Serves 4.


  • 1-1/2 cups onion, julienned
  • 1/3 cup (3 ounces) mascarpone
  • 1 pre-baked 12-inch pizza crust
  • 3/4 cup (3 ounces) Italian-style
    gorgonzola cheese, cubed
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans

Gorgonzola & Caramelized Onion Pizza

Gorgonzola and caramelized onions are a memorable combination.


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. In a sauté pan over high heat, brown onions until caramelized; set aside to cool.
  3. Spread mascarpone evenly over pizza crust. Place cooled caramelized onions on cheese. Sprinkle Gorgonzola and pecans over top.
  4. Bake 6 to 9 minutes or until crust is lightly browned and cheese is hot.


Pear, Walnut & Gorgonzola Pizza Recipe

This recipe is made on a tortilla instead of a pizza crust. It’s light, crisp, and works as an appetizer or “cheese course.” You can substitute plums for pears. Serves 4.


  • 4 fresh 8-inch flour wheat
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 fresh pears, thinly sliced*
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 4 ounces Gorgonzola cheese

*Plums may be substituted for pears.

Pear, Walnut & Gorgonzola Pizza


  1. Brush wheat tortillas on both sides with melted butter, using about 1 teaspoon butter on each. Brown tortillas on both sides using a hot griddle or skillet.
  2. Arrange pear slices on top of each tortilla to cover the surface (about 1/2 pear per pizza). Sprinkle with the walnuts. Sprinkle 1 ounce crumbled Gorgonzola cheese on each pizza.
  3. Broil 30 seconds to 1 minute until cheese is melted. Cut into quarters and serve.
