Pear, Goat Cheese & Pistachio Pizza
Do any of you have that one (or two or three) food that you crave CONSTANTLY?! I have two, pizza and cheese. I could eat pizza anytime, anywhere. Lately all I have been thinking about it pizza, but for some odd reason I went a really long time without having any. As you could imagine, I was stoked when I walked into Morimoto a few days ago for work to find out that staff meal that day was focaccia pizza! Even after eating more than my fair share of staff meal, I still am craving pizza, so naturally I want to share one of my newest pizza creations with you to feed my craving.
This pizza is not your average pizza. It has a bit of a sweeter taste to it, but still has the salty, cheesy flavors of normal pizza. I LOVE this combination- pears, goat cheese and pistachios. Goat cheese is a great pair for fruit, pistachios are a great pair for goat cheese, so naturally they are also a great pair for fruit. If you like exciting new flavors and combinations, I highly recommend you try this pizza.

This pizza looks absolutely delicious!! I love the sweetness of the pears, the zing of the goat cheese and the nutty crunch of the pistachios. You could serve this to me every day and I wouldn’t get tired of it. Maybe I should make my own. 🙂
Wow, now that truly sounds different and amazing. I love trying things completely different.
OH MY GOSH! This looks SO fantastic- what a unique pizza idea! I would definitely order this in a restaurant!
I have a confession. I’m not a big pizza fan. But this pizza looks so amazing, it just might change my mind! Thanks for posting!
Wow that crust looks fabulous, wish there was a recipe for that! I love the different topping combination on this one. We eat so much pizza that I am constantly looking for new ideas. Eating the same old pepperoni can get boring. Although my go to pizza has got to be sausage and jalapenos.
This looks like a great pizza!!! Thanks for sharing!
That sounds amazing! 🙂 Love pear and goat cheese, so why not on a pizza?
