Caramelized Pear and Gorgonzola Cheese Flatbread

Caramelized Pear and Gorgonzola Cheese Flatbread


  • 3 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 ripe, firm Bartlett or Bosc pears, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 medium sweet onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 flatbreads (such as lavash or whole-wheat pitas)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed basil leaves, stacked, rolled, and thinly sliced crosswise


  1. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add pears and onion, and cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes until pears are golden brown and juicy. Turn off heat and set pan aside.
  2. Heat a nonstick ridged cast-iron grill pan over medium-high heat. Cook flatbreads on both sides until they have grill marks. Transfer to a platter and brush one side with remaining olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Top with pear-onion mixture, walnuts, Gorgonzola, and basil. Cut into thirds and serve warm.
