Ricotta-Pear Pizza

If you like your slice on the sweet side, there's another option besides Hawaiian-style (that's pineapple and ham for the uninitiated). Try some nonfat ricotta sweetened with orange marmalade, a touch of honey, and slices of fiber-filled pears for a healthy meal that tastes like it could be dessert.

Pear Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
