Blue cheese, fig, caramelized onion and pear pizza

This is one of the weirdest and most delicious pizza you will ever eat.

I copied it from the news paper and changed it a little by adding and decreasing some of the ingredients.

After a couple of trials I think this is pretty good.

My family loves it.

Two sliced onions

One tablespoon oil

One teaspoon finely chopped dried or fresh rosemary

One pound pizza dough

2/3 cup fig jam

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

1 1/2 tsp.  dried or fresh thyme

One  to two large thin sliced pears

4 ounces blue cheese

cayenne pepper

3 handfuls arugula

One teaspoon olive oil

Saute onions in oil and cook till soft and caramelized

Grease the bottom of a cookie sheet with a thin coat of Crisco

Stretch out the pizza dough to fit a 9 by 13 pan

Sprinkle with the crushed rosemary

Spread with a thin layer of the fig jam on the pizza

Sprinkle with the thyme

Sprinkle with 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

Layer the sliced pears

I always eat at least a half a pear while I am cooking so this is why you need two pears.

Add the blue cheese

Add the rest of the Parmesan cheese

Season with the cayenne pepper

Add the cooked onions with the oil and spread evenly

Bake in a preheated 475 degree oven on the bottom shelf for 10 to 15 minutes.

Make sure the crust is nice and brown

Mix the arugula with the oil and put on the top of the cooked pizza.

This is  so good and very different.

Another favorite of mine.
