Pear, Prosciutto, and Goat Cheese Pizza with Arugula

Prep Time: 15 minutes  Total Time: 30 minutes


  • ½ cup goat cheese, crumbled
  • ¾ cup Ricotta cheese
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp cornmeal
  • 1 lb prepared pizza dough, at room temperature
  • 1 small pear, quartered, cored, and thinly sliced
  • 1 oz thinly sliced prosciutto
  • 2 cups baby arugula


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

Combine the goat cheese, ricotta, Parmesan, and thyme in a bowl.

Heat oil in a small saucepan over medium-low heat.  Add garlic and cook until fragrant, swirling frequently for 1-2 minutes.  Remove from heat.

Sprinkle a baking sheet with cornmeal.  Stretch and shape the dough into a 12-by-12 inch circle or square, and place it on the prepared baking sheet.

Spread the cheese mixture on the dough, leaving a 1-inch border all around.  Top with pear and garlic-oil mixture.

Bake until golden and cooked through, about 12-15 minutes.  Top with prosciutto and arugula.  Slice and serve immediately.
