Savory Pear Pizza

Tonight I sliced the last of the 1/2 pound pears I received in a giveaway from USA Pears.  The recipe was on a card in the gift box.  I substituted Italian Sweet Turkey Sausage in place of the prosciutto. 

The crust is the Individual Pizza Crusts with Yogurt, a soft and easy to shape dough.  I made a pesto with ground pecans (I am out of walnuts!):

(Serves 4-I'm using 1/2 in a recipe for our Sunday picnic)

1/4 cup ground Pecans
1 clove Garlic
1/2 cup Spring Mix and Herbs from my container garden
1 tsp. Olive Oil
Grind in mini food processor.  Sprinkle 1/4 over each of the pizza crusts.

1 Italian Turkey Sausage, sliced and browned, then diced to place on the pizza
Finely shredded Parmesan Cheese
1/3 Sliced Pear
Sprinkle Mrs. Dash
Bake in 375 degree oven 15 minutes.

I chopped the remaining fresh cauliflower I bought at the Farmer's Market to heat for the side dish.  The recipe is from Eating Well.

Cauliflower with Lemon & Olives
1/2 Fresh Cauliflower, diced
1/2 tsp. Fresh Thyme
6 Kalamata Olives, diced
1 tsp. Olive Oil
1 tsp. Lemon Juice
1 mini Sweet Pepper, diced
1 Tbsp. Onion, diced
Toss together and heat.

While I was baking pizza, I added my turkey and potato for tomorrow's picnic to bake as well!
