Pear mini pizzas with caramelized shallots, a drizzle of honey and walnuts with some boursin may be our favorite appetizer. Much easier than it sounds to put together.
Prep Time: 40 minutesminutes
Cook Time: 10 minutesminutes
3medium shallots(peeled and thinly sliced)
4ouncesboursin(substitute goat cheese)
1pear(unpeeled and thinly sliced)
In a medium skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Add the shallots and salt. Reduce heat to medium low and cook, stirring often, until they are soft and lightly browned, about 30 minutes. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 475º. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Roll out pizza dough onto lightly floured surface to ¼ inch thickness. Cut with 21/2 inch biscuit cutter and place on baking sheet. Brush lightly with olive oil.
Spread with about ½ tablespoon of cheese and top with 2 slices of pear. Bake 8-10 minutes, or until the dough is golden brown.
Remove from oven and top with shallots and a sprinkle of thyme. Serve warm.
