I know what you mean lulu. When my daughter walked in and said fire up the oven, I was a little skeptical.. But, this was one of those you have to try it things and I'm glad I did.

cj,

This sounds like it would make a good salad too - just use a simple red wine vinaigrette and toss everything together. My usual pear salad has blue cheese in it - but I love the idea of the brie instead. And arugula rocks as far as I'm concerned!!! You could even toss in some pizza crust croutons - I guess you'd call this salad a deconstructed pizza????

I bet if you don't have pears but have Granny Smith apples they would work too.

Thanks Mish,
this is nice, it makes a great appy as well as a wonderful spring or summer lunch..Those stuffed pears with ricotta, walnuts and cream cheese, sound yummy.

other variations to think about - had some l/o crab (now that's sacrireligeous, isn't it????) an sprinkled that on - yum. Also, minced serrano chilis are good sprinkled over.

One place I seem to get the best ideas for fruit + pizzas is looking up quesadilla recipes - great combinations there for pizza and so many include fruits.
