Pear and Prosciutto Pizza - All that's Jas

Pear and Prosciutto Pizza

Man, how did I go through all my life without this pear and prosciutto pizza? When my husband talked me into going to 4-H fair all we did was eat greasy fair food. We ate a large amount of meals and I’m not proud of it. One dish that still resonates with me, besides doughnut bacon cheeseburger, is this pear and prosciutto pizza originally called Just What The Doctor Ordered.

Fire truck with a wood fired pizza oven, cleverly named Fire-N-The Hole, had the crowd go wild. It was hard to pick just one specialty pizza and I’m so glad we settled on this one. The sweetness of the pear paired up with saltiness of the prosciutto creates a fantastic combination and goes great with the rest of the ingredients.

This pear and prosciutto pizza is just what the doctor ordered

 

Of course, I don’t just whip up the pizza dough any time I want homemade pizza for dinner. As a matter of fact, I stopped making the dough ever since I discovered Naan bread as a super duper pizza crust substitute. Sometimes, and it works great when we have people over, I just set the Naan and pizza toppings out and everyone makes their own pizzas. Easy as pizza pie.

Since this pear and prosciutto pizza is just what the doctor ordered, I make it quite often. Naan bread comes in packs of two and it is perfect size for an individual pizza. Husband and I like to make them with different toppings and share. We always make German style pizza, das Flammkuchen, and then whatever toppings we have on hand, like in this Naan pizza.

 

Ingredients:
Makes 2

1 package original Naan bread
2 tablespoons olive oil
6 oz. fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
3 oz. prosciutto, torn into pieces
1 small pear, sliced
1-2 Roma tomatoes, sliced
¼ cup shaved or sliced Parmesan cheese
Fresh basil leaves

 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 420 degrees Fahrenheit.

Place Naan bread on an ungreased cookie sheet. Brush tops with olive oil. Top with mozzarella slices, about 3-4 per crust (it doesn’t need to be completely covered with cheese). Add remaining ingredients ensuring not to overcrowd. You might have leftover ingredients but they make a great snack in between meals.

Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes or until the bread is browned on the edges and cheese has melted. Serve immediately. Enjoy!

    Jas, this is such a yummy pizza! I also don’t make my own dough. I use pita bread, is that like Naan bread? And I’ve never tried pears on a pizza. Now you gave me something to look forward to.

      Hi, Mary! Naan bread is more dense and it’s not sliced like pita bread (unless you have different pita breads than offered here). I think whatever pizza crust you’re happy with will work. The idea is just a quick pizza with yummy toppings 🙂

    I’m officially in love with this! I did have one kind of like this once, without the tomato, but either way sounds delish!

    I must say, I don’t eat a lot of breads but, the times I do, I want it to be as tasty as it can be. This is definitely something I’m going to try since Naan bread is amazing in every way. Your pictures are unbelievable and they’re doing their job of enticing 🙂 Thanks much for sharing at Funtastic Friday!

    Hi Jas
    Ok, this looks so delicious and easy! But…I’ve never heard of Naan bread — where would I find this in the grocery store? Any particular section? It looks similar to a tortilla…. Definitely sounds good to me!

      Hi Catherine! Thank you for liking my blog enough to follow! Welcome 🙂 Our stores place Naan bread in front of the deli. They usually have a little shelf with all kinds of wraps and specialty bread. Try to look there, I hope you’ll find it. If not, ask a store associate if they carry it.

    Jas! I want to kiss you!! That is really clever using Naan bread and I’ve never ever thought of using it as pizza. I’ve always dreaded to make a pizza dough from scratch. In the last few years, I’ve avoided naan (fattening!) even though my husband loves it. Still, this is a fab meal. I’m inspired!

      Oh, don’t say naan is fattening, I’m gonna cry, lol! We don’t eat it too often, only when in time crunch. You have to try it…any topping works! Mwaah
