    This is an AMAZING recipie! It is so easy and very delicious! Here are a few alterations I suggest making however. Stretch the pizza dough to fit a large cookie sheet. Double the amount of provolone cheese because you will need extra to cover the stretched pizza dough. You will also need to double the amount of pears, walnuts and gorgonzola. Stretching the dough makes the crust not as thick and really improves the presentation of the pizza (as well as the taste). Enjoy!  -  26 Sep 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very nice blend of flavors- interesting and, dare I say it, adult. Far too many recipes, I think, lack _complexity_ in flavor. They're salty, or sweet, or a combination thereof most people refer to as _savory_. This, really, is none of the above. It has a sort of _depth_ to it. None of the flavors in the mix are _simple_. Pear is not merely sweet, Gorgonzola not merely cheesy, etc. Taken together, this recipe creates a nice warm gestalt... I liked it a lot, and plan to make it again...  -  24 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My husband (who was very unsure of this unusual pizza) and I loved it! Great sweet/savory combination. I used cornmeal under the crust (for crunch and to keep it from sticking to the pan) and pre-baked it for 6 minutes. I also rubbed a garlic clove on the crust and brushed it with olive oil before adding the toppings. Great pizza!  -  08 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
