Pear Goat Cheese and Italian Sausage Pizza with Roasted Garlic and Fresh Basil

Pear Goat Cheese and Italian Sausage Pizza with Roasted Garlic and Fresh Basil

I’m really starting to get into this whole fruit on pizza thing. I recently posted a Peach and Prosciutto Pizza and I loved it so much it kept me craving more. Pizza is one of my favorite foods and I was starting to get bored with the same tomato, basil, mozza pizza all the time, so I’ve stepped outside my comfort zone and let me tell you, it’s amazing! It’s kind of like pizza crust is just a blank canvas and you just need to decide what you are going to paint on it. But honestly, we are all obsessed with pizza so why do we keep buying and making the same kinds over and over again? Let’s add in a little pizzazz to these pizzas!

  • 1 (16 oz) pizza dough, homemade or store bought
