Roasted Pears – Master Recipe


Roasted pears can be used for good, like in a fall salad with grilled chicken and a little blue cheese, or used for evil like in this pizza I made for Russ.


I like to buy a bunch of pears and roast them to keep in the fridge.  Once roasted, they will last a couple weeks in an airtight container.





Preheat oven to 425º.


Cover a cookie sheet with foil and spray with Pam.  This is very important because the pears will stick without the foil.


Slice the pears into ¼ inch slices and lay them flat on the cookie sheet.  They can touch, but not overlap.  Spray the pears with Pam and place in the oven.  Cook for about 30 minutes and turn the oven off and leave them in another 15 minutes.


For those of you who can afford to eat the pizza here is how I made it.  I just bought pizza dough at the store and stretched it out and pre-cooked it on the grill by heating the grill up to very hot and lay to dough directly on the metal grill closing the lid and cooking it for 3 minutes and flipping it over and cooking for a minute and a half on the other.


I lay the following on top of the cooked crust- roasted pears, caramelized onions, a little mozzarella and blue cheese.  Then put in a 400º oven until the cheese melts.  The pizza is great served with a little arugula salad on top.
