I always have a few pizza bases on hand for emergencies and along with blue cheese, a pesto or herb spread and some onion, you can create a delicious pizza. Those who aren’t blue cheese fans could try a more traditional topping of tomato paste, mozzarella, ham and pineapple or mushroom and cheese. 

BLUE CHEESE AND ONION PIZZA RECIPE
Serves 4

1 Tbsp olive oil
1 red onion, sliced
4 small Turkish pizza bases
4 Tbsp pesto (I used Waiheke Herb Spread)
1 cup grated mozzarella
150g blue cheese
Salt and pepper

1. Preheat an oven to 200C.

2. Heat the oil in a small frying pan. Add the onion, cooking slowly for 10 minutes to soften.

3. Place the pizza bases on a baking tray. Spread with pesto, mozzarella, sprinkle over the onion, crumble over the blue cheese, season with salt and pepper.

4. Place into the hot oven for 10-15 minutes until crispy and golden.

5. Cut into pieces and serve hot.
