No one will be able to resist a slice of this gooey pizza that's both sweet and savory with each bite.

8oz. Brie
2 tablespoons butter
2 pears, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced (Bartlett is a good choice)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 (16-oz.) Italian bread shell, such as Boboli
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 cup chopped pecans
3 to 4 tablespoons light brown sugar

Remove and discard rind from cheese. Cut cheese into cubes; set aside.

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add pear, and saute 3 minutes or until tender; sprinkle with cinnamon.

Place bread shell on a large pizza pan or baking sheet. Brush shell with olive oil, and top with cheese cubes. Spread cooked pear mixture over cheese; sprinkle with pecans and brown sugar. Bake at 500 degrees for 5 minutes. Slice pizza into wedges, and serve immediately.
Yield: 8 servings
