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.

Ingredients

  • One 8-inch ready-made pizza crust

  • 1 Cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 Bosc pear, thinly sliced

Pear Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

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.
