Roasted Grape & Sage Pizza

serves 4-5

  • 1 1lb. pizza dough
  • 1 tablespoon salted butter
  • 15 fresh sage leaves
  • 1 1/2 cups red grapes
  • 1  1/2 cups shredded mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • salt & pepper
  • balsamic vinegar, for serving

Preheat oven to 450F

In a small skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter. Add sage and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until sage is crispy. Set sage aside on a paper towel and stir the grapes into the infused sage butter to evenly coat. Set grapes aside.

Stretch pizza dough into a 14 inch circle onto a pizza pan or baking sheet.  Top with mozzarella and gorgonzola cheese. Evenly distribute grapes on top of pizza followed by walnuts. Season with salt and pepper and bake until crust is nicely browned, about 15-18 minutes.  To serve, top pizza with reserved fried sage and a light drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
