Caramel Pear Pizza Pie Recipe

Caramel Pear Pizza Pie Recipe

Ingredients: Serves 6

225 g puff pastry (paste), thawed if frozen
15 g butter
200 g caster (superfine) sugar
3 ripe pears, peeled, cored and sliced

30 ml/2 tbsp cream cheese
Vanilla ice cream (bought or home-made), to serve

Method:

Roll out the pastry to a 25 cm/10 in round and place on a dampened baking (cookie) sheet. Bake in a preheated oven at 190C/375F/gas mark 5 for about 6 minutes until lightly golden. Remove from the oven and leave to cool while making the topping.


Melt the butter in a frying pan (skillet) and add the sugar. Stir until the mixture begins to turn golden, then add the pear slices and toss until they caramelize. Add a little water if they start to stick (be careful as the mixture will splutter). Arrange the pear slices over the pastry and dot with the cheese. Return to the oven for
15 minutes until the pastry is well risen and the pears are a rich golden brown. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
