Pita rounds make quick pizza crusts. But topped with the classic combination of pears, walnuts and blue cheese, they're taken to elegant heights. These pizzas are great with a green salad for a quick supper; wedges can also be served up as cocktail-hour fare.

  1. Preheat oven to 450 °F.
  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until soft and golden, about 7 minutes. Stir in pear and cook, stirring often, until slightly soft and heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Add vinegar and pepper and continue cooking, stirring often, until the liquid has evaporated and the onion is tender and coated with a dark glaze, about 2 minutes more.
  3. Divide the onion-pear mixture among the pitas; sprinkle with cheese and walnuts. Transfer the pitas to a large baking sheet and bake until crispy and the cheese is melted, 10 to 15 minutes.
