Chef Nti shares a special Caramelized Pear Prosciutto Cheta Pizza recipe for an action-packed games night.

CHEF NTI GAMES NIGHT RECIPE 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 110g thinly sliced prosciutto
  • 110g fresh mozzarella
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 large, unpeeled pears, cored and sliced 1/2 inch thick
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp fresh herbs, optional
  • A pack of store-bought tortillas
  • Fresh basil for garnish

Method:

  • Chop garlic and heat in the olive oil over medium heat for just a minute or two. Turn off the heat and set aside to cool
  • Simmer the balsamic vinegar to reduce the volume by about half. It should thicken slightly. Set aside.
  • Melt the butter and brown sugar together over medium heat. Add the pears in a single layer and cook for about 10 minutes turning once, to caramelize the pears.
  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees
  • Brush the garlic olive oil all over the center of the tortillas
  • Add the goat cheese in about 1 tsp sized pieces along with the pears and prosciutto. Keep the ingredients in a single layer as this helps the pizza crust stay crisp and cook quickly.
  • Bake for about 8-10 minutes or until the bottom is evenly brown and the top cheese begins to brown slightly. Remove from oven and allow to stand for 5 minutes.

Drizzle with the balsamic reduction and sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper and fresh basil and/or oregano before slicing and serving.

Enjoy!
