An amazingly simple and delicious variation on your regular pizza…

Pesto, Pear and Goat Cheese Mini Pizza

  • 2 oz goat cheese
  • 5 paper thin slices of a ripe pear
  • Dried oregano, to sprinkle
  • Fresh parmesan cheese, to sprinkle

You can make a million different variations with this easy recipe, like my  version with diced tomatoes and black olives. loaded mini pizza

Add some fresh arugula or spinach on top for extra green power (more greens= more nutrients) and switch up the cheese (asiago, fresh mozzarella, gorgonzola, feta…. oh the possibilities!).
