  1. Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Place the pizza crust on a pizza pan. Bake in the preheated oven until just crisp, about 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, combine the garlic, Dijon mustard, rosemary, and vinegar in a food processor or blender. Turn on, and drizzle in the olive oil slowly until the dressing has thickened. Quickly pulse in 1/4 cup of blue cheese; season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Spread the vinaigrette over the pizza crust. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of blue cheese evenly over the crust, followed by the mozzarella cheese. Arrange the sliced pears over the cheese, and sprinkle with the toasted walnuts.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese has melted and is bubbly, 7 to 10 minutes. Let cool slightly before cutting into slices.

I use my own crust but follow the rest of the recipe. I've made this many times for many people and it has always been a success. Even people who say they don't like pears have loved it!

Great blue cheese flavor in this pizza, blended wonderfully with the pears and walnuts. I might use less of the vinaigrette sauce next time as some people thought it was a bit overpowering. We m...

Too much mustard. I topped the pizza with chopped fresh spinach. Next time I'll use more garlic.
