This white pizza is topped with roast garlic, prosciutto, pears, Gruyere cheese and mozzarella. It has the perfect combination of sweetness, saltiness and cheesiness. Serve with a side salad, if desired.
Ready made fresh pizza dough can be purchased at your local pizzeria.
Very excellent base recipe! Rated 4 stars instead of 5 for unnecessary prep time. I made a couple preparation changes which simplified and cut the time . 1. Whizzed olive oil and raw garlic with stick blender, spread on pizza crust and skipped the pre-baking garlic step . 2. Sliced pears thinly and skipped pre-baking them as well. They were nice and tender nonetheless. Substituted feta cheese for the mozzarella, which gave a great tangy-ness against the sweetness of the pears. My 14 y/o daughter said "this taste's awesome!" and hubby said, "you could open a restaurant with this pizza". Will definitely make again with the above changes. Thanks for the great idea, Bostoncook! - 18 Oct 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was really good, I liked the combination of salty and sweet. I thin sliced the pears, and I also raosted the garlic and cooked the pears at the same time in the oven. Will make again. - 05 Mar 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This pizza is soooo good! When first reading the ingredients, I didn't see how Swiss would be the right cheese for this pizza....but it was perfect. Making it again tonight! - 24 Sep 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
