1 (1-pound) six-grain pizza crust
3 cups thinly sliced Fuji apple (about 8 ounces)
1 cup (4 ounces) crumbled goat cheese
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons honey
2 cups baby arugula
3 tablespoons chopped pecans, toasted
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 450°.
Place pizza crust on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Arrange apple slices evenly over pizza crust; top with cheese. Sprinkle thyme evenly over cheese. Bake at 450° for 8 minutes or until cheese melts and begins to brown.
Combine oil and next 3 ingredients (through honey) in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add arugula; toss gently to coat. Sprinkle pecans evenly over pizza; top with arugula mixture. Cut pizza into 6 wedges.
Crumbled feta can be substituted for the goat cheese in this recipe.

this was great! used feta cheese and red leaf lettuce. loving fruit pizzas, having made a peach/ blue cheese and grape/chicken. will def make this again. ps--shakespeare: 1/2 a pizza is my serving size !!! served with a small cucumber, carrot and tomato salad mixed with ponzu.
OMG!! This is SOOO good!! Even my kids LOVED it!! We made 2 pizzas for my family of 5 and it was perfect!! The wonderful flavor combination of the goat cheese and apples and pecans and then with the mustard dressing on the salad! Delish!! We couldn't find the 6grain crust so got an "Artesian" ready made crust and used Arugula/Spinach mix as i couldn't find just arugula and it still was perfect! Deffinatly will be making this again and again!!
Easy, delicious, and fast for dinner during the week or a lunch with friends. I really liked the dressing and will use again on salads. Great combination of flavors on this pizza....and incredibly simple to make.
