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:)

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.

  1. 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!

  2. 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!

  3. 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??

  4. what brand of flatbread did you use? looks fabulous and i think i will add it to my 4th of july dinner menu!

  5. 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.

  6. 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!

  7. 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.

  8. Hi,
    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.
