Fruit Pizza

Fruit is added to pizzas in several ways, it can be as an adjunct to a savory pizza as in Gorgonzola bacon and pears, or pineapple added to a meat pizza to make a Hawaiian pizza. Sometimes figs are added to a ham to complement a savory pizza.

At other times a fruit pizza is combined with honey or cream cheese, or crème fraîche to make a dessert fruit pizza. A fruit pizza may also have savory spices: nothing brings out the flavor of fresh strawberries more than freshly ground black pepper and it makes a superb additive to a strawberry pizza.
