Pear and Blue Cheese Focaccia

Ingredients

  • 1 can (15 ounces) Pacific Northwest Canned Pears, halves or slices, in juice, drained
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided, for brushing dough and pan
  • 1 pound bread or pizza dough, thawed
  • 1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

Method

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Dice the drained pear halves or slices and set aside. Lightly brush a 9 by 13-inch baking pan with oil.

Roll the dough to fit the prepared pan. Transfer the dough to the pan and use your fingertips to dimple the surface all over.

Serve immediately.
