Grill, covered with grill lid, 1 minute on each side or until grill marks appear. Stir together softened cream cheese, 3 Tbsp. light brown sugar, and 1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon. Spread about 2 Tbsp. cream cheese mixture on each grilled pizza crust, and top with grilled pineapple slices. Drizzle with warm jarred caramel topping, and sprinkle with toasted pecans and fresh mint.
