Pear, Feta and Walnut Pizza

This Pear, Feta and Walnut Pizza is not your ordinary pizza.  The combination of sweet pears, tangy feta and toasty walnuts is out of this world delicious!

This Pear, Feta and Walnut Pizza is my all-time favorite!

Happy Friday, Friends! How has your week been? Mine’s been crazy busy, but I did have the day off yesterday. I used the extra time to catch up on some housework and laundry (or at least try to), work on report cards, and take care of the kids of course! This weekend is going to be a full one, between the soccer field, finishing up report cards (next week is the last week of school – woo hoo!), and other miscellaneous kid and house stuff. What are your weekend plans?

There are a few recipes that I make that I’ve been making forever. This Pear, Feta and Walnut Pizza is one such recipe. I first made this pizza shortly after Brad and I got married, and we’ve been married for over 11 years now. As a side note, I just spent about three minutes figuring out how long we’ve been married. Not enough sleep + mom brain are challenging my memory and math skills! It’s a very good thing summer is near, indeed.

When I make favorite recipes like this one, it helps me to remember times past and what day to day life was like back then. Life sure was a lot simpler before we had a house and 3 kids, but a whole lot more boring too! Now when I make this pizza I either have little helpers in the kitchen or I’m trying to multitask five things at once.  :)

This Pear, Feta and Walnut Pizza is my all-time favorite!

For years I made this pizza with gorgonzola cheese, and the combination of the gorgonzola and pears is really good.  Lately, though, I’ve been using feta instead and loving it.  We keep feta on hand in our refrigerator much more often than gorgonzola, so it works out convenience-wise too.

Out of all of the homemade pizzas that we’ve made over the years, this one is my favorite.  Next to our standby of veggie and olive, this Pear, Feta and Walnut Pizza is the one we make most often.  I hope you like it as much as we do.  Enjoy!

  6. I love pizza combinations like this! Shawn calls them “girly” pizzas. I always try to convince him to order one of these, but we usually just end up with sausage. I’ll be making this for myself the next time he’s not home for dinner : )
