Reviews for Goat Cheese, Pear & Onion Pizza
"I have had this flavor combination in a sandwich before, but never thought of topping a pizza with it! Delicious! I used a mandolin to thinly slice the onions and pears which made prep a cinch! Will definitely be making this again."
"I used blue cheese instead of goat cheese because I had it on hand--fabulous."
