It is not often that I make something that I have no name for. Such is the story of this…whatever. I am going to call it a vegetarian galette.
You can call it a tart, or be like my father-in-law and call it a pizza. No matter the name, it tastes the same.
Creamy, crunchy and tart, this galette is so versatile! I made 3 of them on Christmas day to take to all of our family gatherings and I only got one piece. That was just because my son didn’t eat all of his ???? And by that, I mean that I took his when he wasn’t looking!
This galette will tempt you from the first bite. This is a great appetizer, side dish, or even dessert with a nice glass of Pinot Grigio. I used Gorgonzola cheese here but that was because the store I went to was out of Roquefort cheese. You can also use a milder bleu if you would like.
You can by all means make your own crust here but seriously, do you really have the time? If you do, don’t tell me.
I don’t always have time, so I use store bought from time to time. Now you crust purists..don’t get your drawers in a bunch. I do make my own pastry crusts and freeze for later use, but on Christmas Day, when I am making 3 of these and a ton of other things, my crust comes from a little blue can. OK?
So without further ado, here is the recipe for my savory vegetarian galette.
Or is that a pear, Gorgonzola, pecan and caramelized onion pizza?
Whatever is is, enjoy it!
