Top this easy pie with crumbled blue cheese. Substitute 1/4 cup granulated sugar for turbinado in the filling, or use Bosc or Anjou pears instead of Bartletts, if desired.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425°.

  • Roll dough into a 14-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. Place dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

  • Combine pear and next 6 ingredients (through salt); toss well. Arrange pear mixture in center of dough, leaving a 3-inch border. Fold edges of the dough toward center, pressing gently to seal (dough will only partially cover pear mixture). Lightly coat with cooking spray, and sprinkle evenly with 1 tablespoon sugar.

  • Bake at 425° for 20 minutes on lowest oven rack. Reduce oven temperature to 350° (do not remove from oven); bake an additional 15 minutes or until fruit is tender and crust is golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into wedges.
