1 12-inch pizza


  • 5 slices bacon, or more to taste, cut into bite-size pieces

  • ½ Bosc pear, sliced

  • 2 tablespoons basil pesto

  • 1 12-inch pre-baked packaged pizza crust

  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, divided

  • ¼ cup crumbled goat cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. Cook and stir bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until completely browned, about 10 minutes; remove bacon with a slotted spoon to a plate lined with paper towel to drain.

  3. Spread pesto over the pizza crust to cover in a thin layer to within 1/2 inch of the edges. Sprinkle about 1/2 the mozzarella cheese over the pesto. Arrange bacon pieces and pear slices atop the cheese; dot with crumbled goat cheese and top with remaining mozzarella cheese.

  4. Bake in preheated oven until the cheese is melted, 9 to 10 minutes.
