Serves:

8" Pizza

Prep:

10 Min

Cook:

25 Min

Ingredients

4 oz
bleu cheese (prefer the cake style)
2 medium
tomatoes sliced very thin
1 medium
onion sweet sliced very thin
1/2 c
ripe olives pitted sliced thin
1 1/2 Tbsp
extra virgin olive oil drizzled
dash of salt and pepper
procure own favorite crust

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Procure a Pizza Crust and place on foil lined Pizza Platter which you have sprinkled with a little Corn Meal, it makes for a crispier crust. Note: I make my own Pizza Dough, but I have been using 8 or 10 inch Flour Tortilla Shells 2 ea. lightly oiled and stacked, for the crust, as a change for any pizza. It works for me, and I usually have them on hand. Try it.
2
Slice the cake of Bleu Cheese then crumble coarsely. Slice the Tomatoes, Onions and Ripe Olives very thin. I find the Cake Style Bleu Cheese considerably more flavorful and usually of better quality than the crumbled.
3
Rub Pizza Crust with EVOO, I use my hand or paper towel folded small. Layer on the Tomatoes, Onions and Ripe Olives. Salt very lightly, then scatter the coarsely crumbled Bleu Cheese atop. Drizzle on 1 to 2 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and a dash of Salt and Black Pepper, Bleu Cheese is naturally salty so go scant with salt.
4
Bake at 325 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. Rotate pan 180 degrees at 12 minute mark to insure even baking. It's a lower temp than normal for most Pizzas. Crust may need a little more time.
5
Remove from oven and let rest 2 or 3 minutes. Slice -- Serve -- Enjoy!
6
Hint: Bleu Cheese melts easily and fast. You may want to cook Pizza 3/4 way through and then add the Bleu cheese sprinkled with additional Olive Oil.
