California Bartletts Are The Perfct Pear For Fall
(NAPSA) - Fall brings the changing color of leaves and cooler weather, but it doesn't mean that the fresh fruits of summer are gone. In fact, many of summer's delicious fruits are still available well into fall, including fresh California Bartlett Pears.
This year, California Bartlett pear growers got together to create the "All Our Best" brochure, featuring some of their favorite recipes including a warm Harvest Pear Crisp and a fresh and simple Bartlett Pear and Spinach Salad.
Included in the brochure is a scrumptious recipe for California Pear Pizza with Caramelized Onions and Prosciutto. Pears and prosciutto are a mouth-watering pizza-topping combination and are perfectly complemented by mozzarella cheese and sweet caramelized onions. These delicious pizzas are a great meal for four or a quick and easy appetizer for entertaining.
To request a brochure, send a self-addressed stamped envelope to: "All Our Best" Pear Brochure, 1521 "I" St., Sacramento, CA 95814.
Melt butter in a large skillet. Add onions and cook over medium low heat, stirring frequently, for 25 minutes, or until onions are very soft and golden brown. Add sugar and cook for 5 minutes more.
Preheat oven to 450 F.
Place pizza crusts on a large baking sheet and top with equal amounts of mozzarella cheese, caramelized onions, pears, prosciutto and Parmesan cheese. Bake for about 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown.
Top with thyme and let cool slightly. Cut into wedges and serve.
