I like to end a pizza dinner with a fruit pizza: pecorino with grapes in the summer, gruyere with pear in the winter. I recommend a chestnut honey, but you can vary this with a light drizzle of truffle oil.


  • Crust for one pizza using Pizza Dough recipe (*see below)
  • 6 ounces gruyere cheese in thin slices or coarsely grated
  • 1 large ripe, Bosc pear, peeled, seeded, and cut into approximately 12 thin slices, lengthwise
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons chestnut honey, to taste


  • * Pizza Dough recipe

    Arrange Gruyere cheese over the pizza crust, trying for as much coverage as possible.
  • Arrange pear slices on top of cheese.
  • Drizzle pizza with chestnut honey.
  • Place pizza in oven. Cook for 6 to 8 minutes, checking for doneness.
