Step By Step  

Pear, Prosciutto and Arugula Pizza

As prepared by Cheeky Kitchen,

Get the skinny on deliciously fresh pizza with healthful ingredients -- and not a pepperoni slice anywhere in sight!


Food is nice. Pretty food is nicer. Pretty food that's great-tasting pizza with fresh, healthful ingredients is the nicest of all --  which is why this gorgeous pizza recipe is the perfect choice to help you ease into a new year of healthier eating.

 

The secret to this seasonal dinner is pears! I used a red and green pear and wasn't too worried that they weren't quite ripe. Fresh arugula is the other great secret to this recipe. It adds a flavor that is truly sensational when combined with all the flavors and colors of the other ingredients.

Red and Green Pears

Grab some Pillsbury Simply French Bread. When unrolled and baked into pizza, this is my all-time favorite crust! It's crispy, rustic, and tastes like a dream!

Pillsbury Simply Rustic French Bread

Unroll your tube of Pillsbury Simply French Bread and press into into a baking sheet which has been lightly greased with nonstick cooking spray

Roll Out Simply French Bread Dough

Pop down a few good slices of Havarti cheese. Save one slice for snacking. Because, hello Havarti!

Add Cheese Slices to Bread Dough

Layer down several slices of prosciutto. If you've never cooked with prosciutto it's a cured ham that tastes like tender, thin-sliced, smoked bacon. It's just tasty delicious.

Proscuitto on Pizza Crust

A smattering of fresh red and green pear slices across the top of your pizza and you're ready for baking.

Add Pears to Pizza

Once golden brown, you can pull that tray of pizza out of the oven and let it cool slightly before slicing!

Grab a hearty handful of baby arugula and serve it on top of each slice!
