Spread the love

Blue cheese pizza? We love pizza , as you well know. Something that catches our attention  is how conservative they are in regards to the composition of the pizza. Fortunately They are from our team with regards to Hawaiian pizza . This means that from time to time, when we eat pizza without guests, we indulge ourselves and prepare pizzas a little less standard. This is one of them that we like the most.  

It is a pizza perhaps uncommon for several reasons:

  • It does not have tomato sauce
  • It has pears
  • It has nuts

However, it is a remarkable harmony, and when searching, we will see that it is more frequent than we might think. This combination has a chemical basis ( Chymical wedding , if you will) that consists of both the pear and the blue cheese contain esters, notably methyl hexanoate, which are united in our perception, making them harmonize. The nuts? texture … and taste too.

The soaking of pear slices in salt water delays the action of the enzyme polyphenol oxidase, responsible for the browning of pears, apples, and other vegetables when cutting them. Soaking in salt water delays the action of the enzyme and then the heat of the oven inactivates it, allowing the pear slices to remain white.
