There ain't no pairing like pear and blue cheese. (We know what we did.) The elegant crisp flavors of pear, with that subtle sweetness, is made for merging with the funky strength of blue cheese. Not to mention, the sweet caramelized onions and the peppery arugula… our perfect pairing has multiplied into a fantastic foursome of flavor. And adding in the crunchy almonds… well, math was never our strong suit; making great meals (and word puns) that you'll enjoy is.

You Will Need
Large Non-Stick Pan
Before You Cook
Caramelize the Onion
Halve and peel onion. Slice halves into thin strips.
Place a large non-stick pan over medium-low heat. Add 1 Tbsp. olive oil, onion, and a pinch of salt and pepper to hot pan. Stir occasionally until onion is lightly caramelized, 15-20 minutes.
While onion caramelizes, prepare ingredients.
Prepare the Ingredients
Coarsely chop almonds.
Quarter pear and core. Cut quarters into thin slices lengthwise.
Par-Bake the Flatbreads
Place flatbreads directly on rack in hot oven and toast, 5 minutes.
Bake the Pizzas
Place flatbreads on a clean work surface. Divide mozzarella evenly on flatbreads, leaving ¼" border. Shingle pears on top of mozzarella. Drizzle each flatbread with 1 tsp. olive oil.
Place pizzas directly on oven rack, with prepared baking sheet on rack below to catch any drips. Bake until pizzas are golden brown and pears are tender, but still slightly crisp, 10-12 minutes.
Finish the Dish
