Ingredients

1 medium
sweet onion
2 Tbsp
olive oil
6 medium
pita bread
3 large
peras, ripe but firm
1/8 tsp
salt
fresh ground pepper to taste
1 Tbsp
butter
3 Tbsp
fresh chopped thyme, divided
1/2 lb
gruyere (you can also use a mixture of your favourite cheeses, grated.)

Step-By-Step

1Peel and thinly slice onion. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat, add onions. Lower heat as needed and saute, stirring often for 15-20 minutes or until wilted and golden.

2Peel, core and thinly slice pears. When onions are golden, stir in salt and pepper; remove from pan.

3Add butter to pan; return to medium heat.

4When bubbly, add pears and saute for 8-12 minutes, turning frequently until softened and lightly browned. Cool on plate.

5Lay out your pitas, and spread a small amount of grated cheese on each.

6Dividing equally, spread each round with onion, then add pear and thyme. Top with remaining cheese, and a little more freshly ground black pepper.

7Bake 10-12 minutes, or until pizzettes are golden. Serve right away, whole or cut in half topped with a sprinkling of thyme.
