  • 1½ tbsp. olive oil, plus extra for greasing

  • 150g crème fraîche
  • 50g Parmesan, finely grated

  • 125g Gorgonzola, rind discarded, cut into small pieces
  • 4 tsp balsamic glaze, to drizzle


  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, fan 200°C, gas 7. Nonstick baking paper should be used to line two baking trays.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the pizza base mix, 175ml warm water, and the olive oil. Mix to form a dough, then knead for 5-10 minutes on a lightly floured surface until smooth and springy.

  4. Season with black pepper and combine the crème fraîche and 40g Parmesan. Place the prosciutto, pears, and Gorgonzola on top of the pizza bases.
  5. Season with black pepper, drizzle with oil, and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden, risen, and melted. Serve immediately with a dollop of balsamic glaze.
