Blue Cheese Pizza and Good Ingredient Pairings?
- natewrites Oct 29, 2010 10:15 AM
My sister and I were trying to think what would be good pairings for homemade pizza using blue cheese. Other than mushrooms and blue cheese, or steak and blue cheese, I'm about out of ideas. There's recipes out there for hot wing pizza, but the ones I've seen use bottled blue cheese dressing (Yuck).
Anyone know of any good ideas for using blue cheese on a pizza?
Blue cheese/crispy bacon/red grape halves
Blue cheese/proscuitto/thinly sliced pears/walnuts or pecans
Blue cheese/thinly sliced Vidalia onion or other sweet onion/turkey or chicken tenders/thinly sliced celery stalks or celery seed/drizzle of buffalo wing sauce or honey bbq sauce
Blue cheese/blackened steak slices/baked potato slices/horseradish cream sauce/arugula when it comes out of the oven
Don't use blue cheese dressing, use crumbled blue cheese
Our local Italian restaurant does a gorgonzola and red wine poached fig pizza that I find deliscious!
I'm very much a pizza traditionalist, but I also love blue cheese. I think I might be willing to give BC pizza whirl.
Blue cheese and sliced meatballs?
Blue cheese and diced, smoke ham?
Bleu cheese and fresh oregano?
