Prosciutto & Pear Pizza

This combination of pears, bubbling mozzarella and blue cheeses, prosciutto and arugula is so great that you’ll be wanting more as soon as you finish the first one.

If you’re looking for something to serve at your next cocktail party, or just for a quiet night in, this pizza is the perfect thing to serve. These flavors pair well with white wine or citrusy cocktails and will wow your guests.

The sweetness of the pears really adds a new level of depth to this pizza. Even if you don’t like pineapple on pizza, I beg you to try it with pears. Paired with the crisp arugula and caramelized onions is a perfect match and it makes for a new favorite pizza flavor.

How to Make Prosciutto & Pear Pizza

First, preheat your oven to 450 F.

Grab your premade pizza dough – you can either buy the dough from a grocery store or make your own in advance – flour a surface to roll the dough out on. Roll your dough out to whatever thickness is your preference, then transfer it onto a piece of parchment paper.

Drizzle on half of the olive oil and spread it all the way to the edges of your dough. Using a pastry brush will make this easier, but you can also use a spatula or spoon. Sprinkle the dough with salt and pepper.

Slice the onion and place them into a pan with the remainder of the olive oil. Cook until the onions are slightly caramelized, around eight minutes.

Spread mozzarella across the whole crust, then top with mozzarella cheese, onions, blue cheese, and pears. Bake for ten to fifteen minutes, or until everything is bubbly and browned.

To top the pizza, you can use fresh arugula or chopped cilantro. I’ve never been a big fan of arugula – it’s so bitter! – so I always use cilantro. The choice is up to you. Don’t skip the fresh topping though. It adds a really nice crunch and freshness to the pizza.

Pear & Prosciutto Pizza

Additional Pear and Prosciutto Pizza Tips

  • You can use any type of pear that you want. Bartlett pears or Asian pears are great because of they’re slightly crisp and not overly sweet.
  • I always splash the pear slices with lemon juice to keep them from getting brown from oxidation.
  • I use crumbled blue cheese on this pizza. If you want to substitute with gorgonzola or stilton, that’s cool too.
