White Pizza with Pear, Walnuts and Parmesan

4 Jan

This was made for a dinner party for six, along with two other pizzas. Although the others were great- rosemary and chicken, spicy sausage and red onion, the white pizza was  le grand experiment. I had made some whipped cream for a dessert and decided to set some aside and add some truffle oil to it (just a drizzle) for the white pizza base (luckily I don’t like my whipped cream overly sweet and had added minimal sugar!) This whipped truffle oil creme was probably the biggest discovery of the night. Although I didn’t serve them (this time!), I tried some truffle cream on  fresh crostini with spicy sausage. Oh.my.

White Pizza with Pear and Walnuts

The pizza was good. I found the crust overwhelmed the toppings a bit (when I find the perfect pizza dough recipe I will post it), as it was a bit bread-y. This pizza would be best served on a thinner crust (a la Terroni, the inspiration).

  • 1 thinly sliced pear
  • finely grated Parmesan for the base, topped with larger curls
  • loosely broken walnuts
  • fresh sage
  • black pepper
  • whipped cream
  • truffle oil

Cook at 450 for 15 minutes.

I also could use a pizza stone.
