How to Make Bleu Cheese Pizza Topping

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.
