Ingredients
  

  • 6 cloves garlic
  • ½ tbsp olive oil
  • 2 ripe pears halved and cored
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • all-purpose flour for dusting
  • 1 unbaked pizza crust
  • 1 tbsp cornmeal for dusting
  • 6 ounces shredded Swiss cheese
  • 5 thin slices prosciutto cut into halves
  • 6 ounce package fresh mozzarella, cut into small cubes
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • ½ tbsp olive oil

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Place the garlic in a small square of aluminum foil. Drizzle 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil over the garlic. Wrap foil around garlic to seal.
  • Roast the garlic in the preheated oven until soft, about 20 minutes. Smash roasted cloves with a fork.
  • Place the pears in a bowl with 1 tablespoon olive oil; toss to coat. Arrange pear slices on a baking sheet.
  • Bake in hot oven until soft, 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Raise oven temperature to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Preheat a pizza stone or baking sheet in the oven.
  • Lightly dust a flat surface with flour. Roll the prepared pizza crust dough out onto the prepared surface. Dust a baking sheet with cornmeal. Lay the dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Spread the mashed garlic onto the dough; top with the Swiss cheese. Arrange the pears, prosciutto, and mozzarella cheese onto the pizza. Season with salt and pepper. Brush the edges of the crust with the 1/2 tablespoon olive oil.
  • Bake in preheated oven until the cheese is melted and crust is golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.
