Pear Honey Caramelized Onion Pizza

Pear Honey Caramelized Onion Pizza

Who else is gearing up for the big game day? Whether you are in it for the action or the commercials, everyone can agree there MUST be delicious things to snack on! 

Our Gluten Free Pear Honey Caramelized Onion Pizza with Manuka Honey 5+ is easy to make and is sure to please the whole family!  We included an easy dough recipe but, of course, you can always go pre-made and make it a 30-minute meal.  While the arugula is optional, we highly recommend it to really round out the flavor profile.

Fun pizza history fact: the yellow cherry tomato was initially thought to be poisonous and so was used mainly for decoration. But when the plague hit, people tried them out of desperation and found that, instead of killing them, they tasted delicious, especially on flatbread!

We hope you’ll try this recipe! It’s so good, you may even find yourself making it again for the Great American Pizza Bake the following week.

Pear Honey Caramelized Onion Pizza 

A delicious pizza with honey caramelized onions, pear and cheese. 

Gluten-Free Pizza Crust:

  • 2 cups gluten-free all purpose flour (we used Bob’s Red Mill)
  • ¾ cup warm water (110-120º)
  • 1 packet instant yeast
  • 1 tbsp sugar 
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar 
  • 1 tsp PRI Fine Sea Salt 

Honey Caramelized Onions:

  • 1 onion (large, chopped)
  • 2 tbsp PRI Manuka Honey
  • ½ tsp PRI Fine Sea Salt

Toppings:

  • 2 green d'anjou  pears
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese (we used dairy-free, Violife)
  • ¼ cup arugula (optional)

Dough Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF. 
  2. Combine the yeast with warm water, and sugar (make sure the water isn’t too hot or the yeast will die). Let it sit for at least 5 minutes until it starts to bubble and look foamy.
  3. In a stand mixer with the dough hook, mix flour and salt and then add yeast mixture, olive oil, egg, and vinegar. Mix for 1-2 minutes until you have a nice ball of dough. 
  4. Place parchment paper on a baking sheet or pan and then oil your hands, transfer the dough to the parchment paper and create your desired pizza shape.
  5. Cook for 8-10 minutes on the lowest rack of the oven. Remove from oven and prepare toppings before cooking for another 10-12 minutes.
  6. Optional step: brush an egg wash on the crust for an extra crispy and browned crust.

Caramelized Onions:

  1. Thinly slice onions and add them to a nonstick pan with 2 tablespoons of raw Manuka honey.
  2. Continuously stir the onions for 15-20 on medium-high heat. Make sure they don’t burn, they should be a beautiful brown caramelized color when finished. Reserve the thick caramelized liquid from the onions and set aside.

Assembly:

  1. Layer cheese, sliced pears, and then caramelized onions. Place back in the oven for 10-12 minutes. Feel free to add 
  2. Add an extra bit of cheese on top a few minutes before removing from the oven.
  3. Remove from the oven, top with the reserved caramelized onion liquid and top with a bit more honey! The last step is optional, add arugula if you’d like some greens.
  4. Slice and enjoy!
