Pear Walnut and Almond Feta Pizza

By now, you probably know that Daiya vegan cheese makes an excellent classic pizza. You might have even made one yourself. But what about those specialty pizzas that better restaurants are so fond of? Well, I’ve got you covered. This almond feta recipe, that I first made for a pasta salad, is wonderful on pizza. It’s perfect anytime that you suspect Daiya is just a little too creamy/processed-cheesy and you need a more complex flavor.This pear and walnut pizza has an amazing sweet-salty vibe. I think it’s better than anything you could get in a restaurant, but maybe I’m just biased.This goes out to this week’s Hearth ‘n’ Soul blog hop.

Pear Walnut and Almond Feta Pizza
If your almond feta won’t crumble, you can spread it on the crust before adding the other toppings.

I only made half of this, but wrote it up as 8-10 servings for simplicity’s sake. 1 recipe Best Ever Pizza Crust (8 crusts), prepared
olive oil
8 Bartlett pears
1 cup walnut halves, chopped
1 recipe Almond Feta with Herbed Oil

Preheat oven to 450 F. Brush olive oil lightly over the crusts. Peel, core, and thinly slice pears. Top crusts with pear slices in a single layer. Distribute walnuts on top. Crumble almond feta and spoon over the walnuts. Bake until heated through, 4-5 minutes.

Serves 8-10

  1. Hi Claire,

    I came over to find your email, but got distracted by this pizza. Mmmmmmmmm! It is not helping my empty tum. Just spent ages cooking the baby a lovely meal, but nothing for us. This would go down just lovely!

    Anyway back to the email. Could you email me at I have an idea for you and want to ask a favour.

  4. Oh, I can almost taste the sweet ‘n salty combo…which I absolutely love, too…my mouth is watering 😀 This is the second time recently that I’ve heard of nuts to make a cheese-substitute…and I can’t wait to go check that recipe out. Thanks you so much for sharing this with the hearth and soul hop this week 😀

  6. I’d never have considered pear on pizza! I need to 1.) Start making Pizza at home; and 2.) start getting creative with pizza. There are so many possibilities!
