A pizza without any actual meat and spices is known as the delicious pear and prosciutto pizza. Hold the chili and the pepperoni because there are two new ingredients in town. Yes, you read it right!

You get the crispy goodness of the thinly styled Italian meat, a little sweetness from the pear and the gooey goodness of cheese. This is no ordinary recipe. If you are on a diet and are still craving for a pizza, then this is the recipe to try. We promise; you won’t be disappointed!

Health Facts

  • While eating prosciutto daily is not advised, it does provide you with 2% of iron, which is required by your body. This helps you maintain your energy all day long.
  • It also helps form red blood cells, which keeps your body in top working condition.

How to Make Pear and Prosciutto Pizza

  • Preheat the oven to 450°.
  • In a nonstick skillet, heat oil and add onions. Cover the skillet with a lid and cook for three minutes.
  • Remove the lid and cook for ten minutes more until the onions turn golden.
  • Line a pan with baking sheet and place the pizza crust in it.
  • Smear the onion mixture on the crust and top it with cheese.
  • Put the finishing touches with pear and prosciutto.
  • Slide the pan into the oven and bake for 12 minutes. (Since the crust is premade and the prosciutto doesn’t need any cooking, the pizza will bake in a few minutes.)
  • Take the pizza out of the oven and let it cool down for 5 minutes, then sprinkle with nuts.
  • In a bowl, place the arugula leaves and drizzle vinegar over them. Toss gently and top the pizza with them.

Cut the pizza into eight wedges and enjoy!
