A note about serious food allergies

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.

    Caramelize the Shallot

    Peel and halve shallot. Slice halves into thin strips.

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-low heat. Add 1 Tbsp. olive oil, shallot, and a pinch of pepper to hot pan. Stir occasionally until shallot is lightly caramelized, 10-12 minutes.

    While shallot caramelizes, continue recipe.

    Bake the Pizzas
