Brie,pear pizza

My oldest daughter just showed up with a pizza! This is so tasty and makes a great appy.
saute pear slices in butter til golden, put browned pears on a plate and add more butter to the pan, 1-2 pears, 4 Tab. butter, divide the butter preheat your oven to 500 brush your pizza dough with the butter, put on pizza pan and place strips of prosciutto on top, spread some arugula all over the top of the posciutto or use greens you prefer, Then put sliced brie on top of the greens, scatter the pears on top of the brie, place in oven and bake til cheese is fully melted...Let rest a few minutes before cutting, then enjoy, I'm going to go get another slice

StirBlue,
my daughter doesn't know one pear from another, but the ones she used were just bosc...I would think though that those crispy asian pears would be wonderful in this pizza,,They are not real sweet, and have a crispness to them almost like an apple.

Elf,
I'm iffy with pears, like them but will go to other fruits first. Until I tasted this today..I love it. It's not super sweet and the mix of the pears and the brie is terrific with the arugula..Hope you get a chance to try it too.

Gosh, that sounds really yummy!! However, I have to hide the pear slices pretty well so that DH does not see them as he hates fruit in dishes.

Isn't it great cjs? I just loved it. Have you tried making it with other fruits? I want to make another one sometime soon, and would like to try other spring and summer fruits when they come into season.

Vicki,
once he tastes it, you won't even have to bat your eyes I hope he hustles to the store and makes one for the two of you..Even Cade, Carson and Ethan loved it and little Livi had several bites and smacked her lips

Oh nuts boufa,
you're gonna have to make one just for you No kidding, make a pizza dough recipe, use part of the dough and freeze the rest, and make a mini one for your lunch or your dessert..It doesn't have extra sugar just the sweetness of the pears, I'd have another one today if I had time to make some dough first.

Kad, I will risk it! Will make for two and if DH likes the taste so much the better. If not, it will be my gain! Thanks for sharing a nice recipe!
