This Brie, Pear and Caramelized Onion Pizza is a sweet and savory meal that can be served as a snack, appetizer or as the meal! The recipe can can make 1 medium-large pizza or two small ones. I had made two small ones as featured in the photos. Feel free to buy pre-made crust to make your life even more simple. Enjoy!

Instructions & Tips for Success

  • Combine 1 cup of flour, instant yeast, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Once combined, add olive oil and water and stir well or use a mixer for about 1-2 minutes. I recommend using a mixer if you have one with the dough hook.
  • Carefully add the other cup of flour gradually while stirring until the dough begins to become a ball. Flour your hands and roll dough into a ball, place in a lightly floured bowl and cover for 30 minutes until it has doubled in size.
  • While the dough is rising, slice the onion and sauté for about 5-6 minutes on medium heat with a dash of olive oil and ½ tsp of sugar. Cook until golden brown and set aside. Tip: You can use butter instead of olive oil to allow it brown easily. Stir constantly so that the onions don’t burn. Adding the sugar speeds up the process since we are making these fast.
  • Once dough has risen, you can use your hands to deflate it and then put it on a floured surface and kneed for about 2 minutes until soft.
  • Roll out the dough into either 1 or 2 pizzas. Shape doesn’t necessarily matter unless you care about aesthetics.
  • Preheat oven with pizza stone in it at 425°F
  • On rolled dough, lightly salt and pepper the dough, place thinly sliced pear evenly apart on the pizza.
  • Slice Brie into small, thin slices and layer on top of the pears.
  • Top with caramelized onions and drizzle with Honey.
  • Place in oven, on pizza stone, and bake at 425°F for about 15-20 minutes. If you don’t have a pizza stone, you can use a non-stick baking sheet and line with parchment paper. However, I recommend that you place on bottom rack in the final few minutes to try and crisp up the crust.
