More About This Recipe

  • 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.

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

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

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

    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.

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

    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!

    That crispy crust? That creamy cheese? That salty prosciutto? Those sweet pears? That pepper arugula? This pizza is the PERFECT melding of gourmet flavors, in a totally delish dinner that even picky people might just appreciate!
