    We LOVED these flavors. Used a homemade crust.

    Very good gourmet pizza. My hubs didn't care for the arugula topping, but loved the rest. I actually made two pizzas so there would be leftovers. Just make sure to not to dress the pizza with the salad until you are ready to eat it. The walnuts, pears, provolone, and the arugula were tantalizing all together. I would make this for an adult get together to impress!

    I absolutely love this recipe. I've made it several times, including an appetizer at my bridal shower. I serve it with butternut squash or tomato basil soup to make it a meal. I use the Pillsbury thin crust (follow the directions on the package), and bake it with cornmeal on the outside to give it a nice crisp crust. Yum!

    This pizza hits the spot! It's not overloaded with sauce as most recipes call for and has many subtle flavor combinations that come together beautifully. I was hesitant about the prociutto, having it in restaurants where the meat turned out gamey after cooking, but this was not the case baked on this pizza. I did without the vinegar, but my husband loved it with! Delicious and light.

    This is fabulous -- and easy to make. Made this twice in a week and will make again soon. Mis the sherry vinegar with the arugula just before adding to the pizza so the greens don't wilt. Forgot to add the walnuts but didn't really miss them because there are so many other flavors.

    I had some overripe pears and was determined to make this even though I knew I would have to substitute ingredients. No prosciutto so I cooked up some bacon and coarsely chopped it. Then I cooked yellow onions, adding 2 T brown sugar as they cooked. I also subed cheese flavors. I had some muenster and some smoked gouda so I did half the pizza with one and half with the other. I did not have the greens either....so the pizza was bare. Some recipes lend themselves to substitutions and this was one of them. Delicious!

    Was delighted to find this. I had one similar to this a couple of years ago and loved it. Differences were they used goat cheese and candied pecan halves and did not dress the greens. Can't wait to try again. The pears were a wonderful flavor. Based on the one I had I am giving it 5 stars.

    Excellent mix of gourmet flavors just like my favorite pizza at Bertucci's, easy to make.
