I started out to make a sweet version of this that I found on Diethood…

Then I remembered the Gorgonzola Garlic Butter

The original recipe called for orange zest, but after I changed my mind from sweet to savory, I didn’t use it…

So pretend you don’t see that big orange thing in the middle of the photo  😳

Roll out the dough a little to thin it out and make it more of a rectangle

Sprinkle with Gorgonzola Garlic Butter {or use small dabs of butter and crumbles of bleu cheese}
