It’s pear season! Such a fun time of the year. Some friends of ours were telling us about their favorite pear pizza and we decided to duplicate it. It is kind of an unusual dish yet sooo yummy! The mix of the sweet pears and the savory garlic and onions creates a mouthwatering pizza that no one can forget.
Everyone likes pizza and there are many ways to keep it healthy. This pizza is great that way because it has delicious fruit and we make our own pizza crust (you can use Quick Rolls, Easy Peasy Whole Wheat Bread or Do Everything Dough). Pears have awesome health benefits, they are high in fiber, good for your heart and they even contain vitamin K. How cool is that?! We also don’t use a ton of cheese for this pizza. It doesn’t need much because of the fantastic flavor! We have found that using a pizza stone enhances the flavor from good to amazing!
Classy Pear Pizza
- 3 Tbs. olive oil
- 2 cloves of garlic, grated
- 1 small red onion, chopped or sliced
- 5 pears, chopped or sliced
- 15-20 leaves fresh basil, whole or snipped
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese, grated
- ¼ cup Parmesan cheese
- ¼ cup pistachios, chopped
- 1 baked pizza crust
Heat pizza stone to 450°. For the pizza crust, roll dough out to desired thickness. Place dough on parchment paper. Using a pizza paddle carefully transfer dough to pizza stone and bake until slightly brown. Remove from oven using pizza paddle.
Grate the garlic into the olive oil and stir well. Let sit for about 15 minutes. Spread on top of your baked crust. Top with remaining ingredients and return to oven until cheese is golden brown.
