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.

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.
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
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!
Crazy fair food!
