Three Cheese Pizza with Fig, Pear & Watercress Salad
Some recipes, I feel, are simply not meant to be.
I had a wonderful idea a week of so ago, to adapt a recipe for a sandwich of Brie, Fig, Pear, and Watercress (from Once Upon a Tart) to a pizza (I'm not a sandwich fan - too bready, except pita).
The first attempt found black specs of mold in the pizza dough, the second was a sudden, instinctive voice that, as I started to put the pizza together, told me "nope".
"What?" I said, confused.
"Tomato sauce with figs and pears - that's not going to work. But, they'll make a great salad with the watercress and some balsamic vinegar"
A simple, yet indulgent pizza with tomato sauce, Brie, crumbled Gorgonzola, and crumbled goat cheese, with slices of fresh Farmers' Market white mushrooms was, well, amazing....with the salad of peppery watercress leaves, fresh figs, sliced D'Anjou pear in a balsamic vinaigrette!
