Personal Pear Pizza w/ Stilton & Walnuts

Servings: 2-4
Recipe from: Greedy Gourmet

7.5g (¼ oz) fresh yeast

150ml (5 fl oz) lukewarm water

5ml (1 tsp) sugar

2.5ml (½ tsp) sea salt

15ml (1 tbsp) olive oil

37.5g (1½ oz) durum wheat flour

200g (7 oz) strong bread flour

250g (9 oz) ricotta cheese

4 large pears, thinly sliced

300g (10 oz) Stilton cheese, crumbled

50g (2 oz) walnuts, coarsely chopped

  1. Crumble the yeast in a bowl and dissolve in the water. Add the sugar, salt and olive oil.
  2. Add the two flours a little at a time and knead the dough in a mixer for around 10 minutes, until it is elastic. [You can also knead the dough by hand.]
  3. Sprinkle a little flour over the dough, cover with a cloth and leave to rise in the bowl for about 45 minutes, until it is double in size. While the dough is rising, preheat the oven to 250°C (fan 230°C/500°F/gas 10).
  4. Divide the dough into 8 and roll each one out thinly on a floured surface.
  5. Spread a layer of ricotta on every pizza.
  6. Distribute the pears over the pizzas.
  7. Crumble the Stilton over the pears, and then sprinkle over the chopped walnuts.
  8. Bake in the middle of the oven for 5-10 minutes. Serve immediately.
