Pear, Feta and Walnut Pizza
See my guide on how to use an Instant Pot.
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!
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. 🙂
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.
I like to use my favorite pizza dough recipe for the crust. It’s easy to make and so delicious with your favorite toppings.
Out of all of the homemade pizzas that we’ve made over the years, this one is my favorite. We rotate between this recipe, BBQ chicken pizza, and a simple veggie and olive pizza. I hope you like it as much as we do. Enjoy!
Pear, Feta and Walnut Pizza
- 1 ball pizza dough
- extra virgin olive oil
- 6 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese, (1 ½ cups)
- 1 pear, cored and thinly sliced (Bosc or any type you prefer)
- 2 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
- ⅓ cup chopped walnuts
- 1 teaspoon chopped fresh chives
- Place a pizza stone in a 500 degree oven to preheat for at least 30 minutes.
- Meanwhile, roll out pizza dough into a 12 to 14-inch round and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Lightly brush dough with a little bit of olive oil. Sprinkle on the mozzarella cheese.
- Arrange the pear slices on top of the cheese; top with feta and walnuts.
- Reduce oven temperature to 425 degrees F. Slide the parchment and pizza onto the preheated pizza stone in the oven. Bake pizza for 9-12 minutes, until cheese and crust are lightly golden brown.
- Let pizza stand for 5 minutes; sprinkle on chives, slice and serve.
Wow, this is the perfect summery pizza! Love that flavor combination!
Ohhh I bet the gorgonzola would be good in this recipe as well! This looks just soooo good… I may be drooling a bit! Can’t wait to try this one! Great recipe!
Pear and feta pair beautifully together! This looks delicious 🙂
What a unique pizza! So much delicious flavors going on – yummy!! 🙂
I love this pizza. It’s so much better than the typical pepperoni and the flavor combination Blends so well. Thanks for letting us enjoy this at your house!
You’re very welcome! I’m glad you enjoyed this pizza!
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 : )
I hope you have a dinner to yourself soon so you can give this a try! 😉
I am really digging this flavor combination!
It’s so funny to think about how simple life was before kids, but I swear, when they’re gone it’s too quiet and we’re bored! Life will never be the same! Haha. This pizza would be a favorite of mine — I love the sweet, salty, and crunchy elements! Pinned.
I know what you mean, Marcie! I wouldn’t trade these busy days for anything! 🙂

Dear Kristine, what a wonderful combination of flavors. I would never have thought of adding fruit, but paired with feta this sounds delicious! xo, Catherine
This sounds delicious! I can see how the sweetness of the pear and the saltiness of the feta balance each other well in this pizza. Yum!

This pizza sounds awesome. I’m such a huge fan of sweet & salty together, so I love the idea of the pear and tangy feta!! And I bet the walnuts add a fun crunch! I’ll have to try this combo 🙂
Oooo this pizza looks fantastic! I always do pear, walnut and goat cheese but I am definitely using feta next time!
