Can I just tell you guys that I felt like the funniest person in the world when I came up with the idea for using cherries as a pizza topping and realized that I could still call it cherry pie (as in pizza pie). Man, I was really cracking myself up about the whole thing. I thought I was pretty hilarious. Others around me did not seem to appreciate my humor as much as I did…..
Let’s talk about what’s on this pie. First up, caramelized onions with balsamic vinegar and fresh rosemary. Yum. Then two types of cheese: brie and crumbled gorgonzola. You can’t go wrong with either of those. And of course, the cherries. Sweet, soft and juicy. Finally, a sprinkling of fresh basil seals the deal.
Savory, sweet and the perfect (albeit unexpected) way to enjoy the bounty of summer cherries.
