This Pear and Goat Cheese Pizza is a perfect combo of savory and sweet which is such a winning combo: fall pears, summer sausage, creamy & rich truffle goat cheese, and balsamic vinegar. It’s simple, elegant, and perfect for a little fancy dinner gathering!!!!!! I am loving any recipes with pears currently!!!

And it’s so simple!!!!! And so beautiful !!!


  • Favorite pizza crust of choice ( I love the one from Trader Joe’s)

  • 1 to 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • Kosher salt or smoked salt to get a smoky fire taste, to taste

  • 1 to 2 pears peeled and thinly sliced

  • 4 to 8 ounces summer sausage thinly sliced (about 1/3-1/2 a whole summer sausage) (Love Harry and David’s)

  • 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup goat cheese crumbled

  • 1 to 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar drizzle it over the pizza and use more if necessary


  1. Follow the baking instructions for your favorite pizza crust recipe.

  2. Once you’ve prepared your crust and have the dough laid out, drizzle some olive oil on top of the dough and use the tips of your fingers to spread it around. You don’t want pools of oil but enough that you can see it.

  3. Sprinkle some Kosher salt or smoked sea salt onto the surface of the dough.

  4. Spread out the slices of pears, summer sausage, and crumbled goat cheese in that order onto the pizza dough. Finish with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.

  5. Bake in the oven until the rim of your crust is golden (for me, 5 minutes at 550 degrees Fahrenheit).

  6. Switch the oven to broil and broil until the cheese is melted and the crust has a few spots of darker brown as well as a few char spots.

  7. Let the pizza cool for 5 minutes before slicing or serving.
