YUM. I used a little more bleu than the recipe asked for, and I used straight bleu. Also used prunes instead of figs, which turned out fine but I think fresh figs would be even better. I also used a different dough recipe. I mixed the cheese and milk but didn't really puree it- I do love the chunks, though. Overall, definitely make this!!

Aside from the complainers and nit-pickers (Treasure Cave and a few other brands out there have vegetarian Gorgonzola options), this recipe is so *GOOD*!! When I first made this pizza, it was the first time I had had fresh figs and ohmegeezers the combination of the fig and Gorgonzola was just heavenly! I highly recommend this pizza! Here's a list of brands that carry vegetarian cheeses http://cheese.joyousliving.com/CheeseListBrand.aspx

Just to back up the other post - I have also heard that Gorgonzola is never Vegetarian. I believe it is a protected foodstuff which means that it needs to be made in a certain way to legitimately be called Gorgonzola - in this case it is made with Animal Rennet taken from the stomaches of butchered calfs. The same is true of Parmesan and Gran Padano. Vegetarian Times really should look into this.

This recipe is not vegetarian and it worries me the you are promoting it as such. Gorgonzola, as do most other cheeses, contain animal enzymes, therefore making this recipe and all other recipes you publish that promote the use of 'normal' cheese NOT VEGETARIAN!!!
