This Brie, Pear and Arugula pizza would be great for an appetizer. I used a pound of store bought fresh pizza dough found in the deli section which really made this easy to make. If you want to make your own dough here’s a link to one of Kathy’s recipes for pizza dough.


  • 1 pound of pizza dough
  • 1/2 cup red onion sliced thin
  • 1 small round of Brie (4 oz.) sliced.
  • 2-3 fresh pears cored and sliced
  • A handful of Arugula
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Prepare pizza pan with a little olive oil to coat.
  3. Prepare a surface with a little flour to roll out your pizza dough to fit your pan.
  4. Transfer dough to pan and stretch to fit nicely.
  5. Top dough evenly with the red onion slices.
  6. Bake in oven for up to 12 minutes until the dough is golden.
  7. Remove from oven and turn the oven to broil.
  8. Carefully add the Brie and Pears evenly on the dough.
  9. Salt and pepper these ingredients to your taste.
  10. Scatter the Arugula on top of the Brie and Pears.
  11. Sprinkle with olive oil.
  12. Place pan back in oven set to broil and watch very carefully removing just after the Brie melts.
  13. Cut into serving portions and enjoy.
