Pear and Blue Cheese Flatbread-this amazing flatbread only takes 20 minutes to make. It is great served as an appetizer or meal!
Josh loves blue cheese. When we first started dating, he took me out to dinner. He ordered a pear and blue cheese salad to start. When the salad came out he asked our server for extra blue cheese. The server brought back a huge bowl of blue cheese and Josh dumped the entire thing on his salad and cleaned his plate. I was amazed. I love blue cheese, but a little goes a long way:) I learned that a little blue cheese isn’t enough for Josh. He likes lots and lots of blue cheese.
Josh still loves a good pear and blue cheese salad, but his favorite way to enjoy blue cheese is on this Pear and Blue Cheese Flatbread. This flatbread recipe only takes 20 minutes to make and is great served as an appetizer or meal. We love making it for lunch or dinner. We serve a salad on the side and call it good! Of course, Josh adds blue cheese to his salad. He can never have too much:)
The star of our flatbread is Salemville’s Blue Cheese. Salemville’s blue-veined cheeses are sustainably produced by an Amish community in Cambria, Wisconsin. Cows are hand-milked twice daily without the use of machines or electricity and milk is delivered to the factory in traditional 10-gallon milk cans. All Salemville cheeses are farmer-certified rBGH free, rich in calcium and contain no preservatives or chemical additives. It is good stuff!
We top store-bought flatbread with a little olive oil, Salemville’s Blue Cheese Crumbles, thinly sliced pears, red onion, and rosemary. We bake the flatbread until the cheese is melted and pears are tender.
When the flatbread comes out of the oven, we drizzle it with honey. Don’t skip this step! The honey adds the perfect amount of sweetness to the flatbread. All of the flavors come together to create an amazing flatbread!
This Pear and Blue Cheese Flatbread recipe is perfect for entertaining or when you aren’t in the mood to cook. You can have this gourmet flatbread on your table in 20 minutes! It will impress your guests and your belly! It is a favorite at our house!

Love the story about Josh and dumping the whole bowl of blue cheese on his salad on your first date! ha! Great bread, Maria! Pinned
Haha, my hubby would totally dump all the cheese on the salad…he hates seeing the lettuce, as it makes it look to healthy!
we just tried pear and blue cheese pizza, and died…so this is going on our must make list! Pinned!
This looks fabulous! Love that it is a quick and easy app that can be made at the last minute. 🙂
I can never get enough blue cheese..probably why I don’t really keep it in the house. In France, the standard blue cheese is Roquefort and man, that slice does not last long when paired with a fresh baguette. I like this flatbread because it would probably help me portion control somewhat…or maybe not, who am I kidding! Great idea!
Although I’m not a huge blue cheese fan, I’m so tempted to try this. Looks super delicious. This would be great with some prosciutto and rocket.
I loooooove blue cheese. These are perfect little appetizers!!
This look delicious. Am I the only one chuckling at the Amish cheese Facebook page? Hehe…
Love how easy this is to come together! Blue cheese is my fav!
That is some SERIOUS blue cheese love! This would be lovely as an app or light dinner (with a blue cheese salad perhaps? 😉 )
Love the pear, blue cheese and honey flavour combo and this looks great!
This looks incredible! Love these flavors!
I just love this combo of flavors! delicious!
Sounds divine! Going to have to try…except NOT a fan of rosemary. I would leave it off. Any suggestions for substitution for the rosemary??
You can just leave off the rosemary and it will still have plenty of flavor. You can also try thyme!
This look so simple and summer perfect! Love the drizzle of honey right as it comes out of the oven. Fabulous!
I am such a sucker for blue cheese! We grew up eating it on toast with butter with our eggs. 🙂
What a perfect combo!!
My husband’s a blue cheese freak too! Especially with pears, we always make a pear and blue cheese salad when pears are in season! Pinning this one for him!
I love pear and blue cheese together! Looks beautiful and delicious!
This flatbread looks so good! I got pears but no blue cheese. Wonder if I can get away with substituting any other cheese?
what brand of flatbread did you use? looks fabulous and i think i will add it to my 4th of july dinner menu!
Gorgeous flatbreads, love the pear and blue cheese combo!
This looks amazing!
I love blue cheese and pear combinations! YUM! Too funny about Josh dumping all of that cheese. I tend to agree with you that a little goes a long way especially if it’s a really rich blue cheese.
Such a wonderful combo of flavors for flatbread Maria!!!
What a perfect appetiser idea! And I love pear on anything at the moment!! (Great in salads!)
My husband LOVES Blue Cheese, and I think I could convince him to give this a try…though it might be a little sophisticated for his cowboy tastes 😉
That looks too good! But are you sure there’s enough blue cheese on there?
This looks so good. Amazing appetizer idea 😉
Wow!!!! pear and blue cheese is such a classic combination and using this winning combo on a flatbread has me drooling! Need to get some flatbreads really soon!
Yum! I love fruit with blue cheese, this looks great!
This is delicious! I added some chopped walnuts to mine-GREAT!
This flatbread definitely catches my interest! I’m a huge fan of blue cheese as well, but not so much of warm/heated pears. However, the idea of putting them both together is something I’ve never heard and look forward to making. Hopefully my parents enjoy it!
Amazing looking flat bread. If it taste as good as it looks. you guys have a winner. So funny how much Josh loves blue cheese. 🙂
I made the Pear and Blue Cheese flatbread for an impromptu Wednesday night wine and appetizer party and everyone loved it! Thanks for a great recipe that I know I’ll make many times.
We tried your pear and blue cheese flatbread and it had delicious flavor. However we must have had the wrong brand or size of flatbread because the entire flatbread was soggy and wanted to simply fall apart. Can you help us with this? Either a brand or better yet size of the flatbread we need to use to make this amazing entree work. Any hints or tips would be most appreciated. Thank.
We like Stonefire brand.
What kind of store bought flatbread did you use for this recipe?
This was… incredible. Topped mine with a generous amount of red pepper flakes. SO GOOD, THANK YOU SO MUCH!
