Ingredients
  

  • 2 Ontario Bartlett Pears halved, seed removed, sliced into 1/4" thick slices
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 sprig of fresh rosemary cut in half
  • 1/2 red onion thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp rosemary finely chopped
  • salt & pepper
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup olive oil enough to cover the onions 1/2 - 3/4 cup
  • 4 naan approximately 8" rounds
  • 16 slices of Brie 2" long x 1/4" thick (200-250 g)
  • 4 slices of prosciutto
  • 1 cup arugula
  • smoked honey (or your favourite honey)

Instructions
 

  • Combine the onions and the chopped rosemary in a small bowl, sprinkle with salt & pepper, then pour the olive oil over the onions stir to combine the seasoning and set aside on the counter for at least 30 minutes up to 4 hours.
  • Preheat your pizza oven, grill or oven. (Pizza oven 800°F/425°C, Grill to 450°F/230°C, Oven to 425°F/220°C)
  • In a skillet over medium-low heat, add the rosemary sprigs and butter. Melt the butter and bruise the rosemary with a wooden spoon to bring out the flavour. Cook for 1 minute, then add the pears in a single layer. If your skillet is small you may have to do this in 2 batches. Cook until the pears are just barely beginning to soften, 5-7 minutes flipping once. Remove pears from the skillet to a plate until you are ready to assemble the naan.
  • Brush the top of each naan with a little of the oil mixture from the onions. Add 6-8 onion circles, 4 slices of Brie and 7-8 pear slices to each naan. Cook until the Brie has melted (60-90 seconds in the pizza oven, turning frequently; 6-8 minutes on the grill or in the oven. After closing the grill lid, turn the heat directly under the naan off, so that it doesn’t burn).
  • When the Brie has melted remove naan and finish each with a piece of prosciutto, 1/4 cup of arugula and a drizzle of honey.
  • Serve hot and enjoy!
