Pear-Cheese Dessert Pizza

Southern Desserts: Pear Pizza

This is one of our new favorite southern desserts. I came up with it after one of my daughters brought me a bucket of fresh pears from visiting her grandmother. This is a quick and easy dessert recipe that’s really tasty. I’ve always liked a sweet and salty combination, and this dessert pizza achieves that. I cal it a dessert pizza because I couldn’t think of anything better to call it.

By the way, instead of traditional brown sugar, I used a new zero-calorie brown sugar substitute with which I was very impressed. It’s called “Ideal Brown,” and I’ll be using it in more sugar-free desserts! I highly recommend this product, and you can order it below.

Holle’s Pear and Cheese Pizza Recipe

What you’ll need:

  • Fresh pears, thinly sliced
  • Lemon juice
  • Refrigerated crescent roll dough
  • Ideal Brown sugar substitute or real brown sugar
  • Melted butter
  • Cinnamon
  • Grated Colby-jack cheese

Directions: Toss sliced pears with lemon juice and set aside.

Unroll crescent roll dough and join seams together to create a square or rectangle. Form a slight rim around the edges.

Arrange pear slices on crust and sprinkle generously with brown sugar. Drizzle with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon. Top with grated cheese.

Bake at 375 degrees for about 15 minutes, or until crust is brown and cheese has melted. Cut into squares to serve.
