Earlier this year, I worked on a handful of recipe videos for Krusteaz®, and this recipe is actually my personal favorite of the bunch… I hope you like it too! The combo of sauteed pears and creamy Gorgonzola is such a yummy mix of sweet & savory, and the candied walnut garnish adds a nice bit of crunch. The layered pear slices also make for a very pretty visual display, which is always a great quality when serving at a party!
I used the new Italian Herb Flatbread Mix from Krusteaz for the crust. It bakes in 10 minutes flat and keeps things fast & easy in the kitchen… which is exactly how I need them to be most of the time, myself. ;)
You can find the full Pear & Gorgonzola Flatbread recipe over on the Krusteaz website, or watch our video below for a tutorial. My favorite ways to serve this flatbread are in generous slices alongside a hearty salad or cut into small rectangles for a festive appetizer.
P.S. If you’re on the lookout for holiday party inspiration, you’ll find plenty of that below, too, from a few of my favorite DIY decor ideas to festive printables you can download for free. Happy Holidays!
1. “POSITIVE” PAINTED PEARS
I kept the look of theses painted pears and their printable paper leaves pretty simple so that the positive sentiments on the leaves would really stand out. The pears are covered in acrylic white paint, and a few of them were also color-blocked with metallic gold spray paint. The leaves are attached with small dabs of hot glue.
2. PARTY FLAGS
Next up is one of my personal staples… party flags! You can attach them to toothpicks, straws, or bamboo skewers (to create drink stirrers).
