adapted from howsweeteats

2 semi-ripe pears, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons brown sugar
6 ounces mozzarella cheese, freshly grated
2 shallots, sliced
2 garlic cloves, minced
4 slices prosciutto
6 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
pizza dough

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Heat a large skillet over low heat and add olive oil and butter. Add in the pears with the salt and nutmeg and cover, cooking for 15 minutes and stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat more if they begin to brown too much. Stir in the brown sugar and cook for 5 to 10 more minutes until golden. Set aside.

Add about three fourths of the fontina on the dough along with the garlic and shallots. Spread the pears all over the pizza and cover them with the prosciutto. Crumble the blue cheese over top and add the rest of the fontina. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the cheese is bubbly. caramelized pear, crispy prosciutto + blue cheese pizza.
