  • 1 Ball whole wheat pizza dough (homemade or store bought)
  • 1 onion (thinly sliced)
  • 2 pears (thinly sliced)
  • 1 wheel of brie (cut into chunks)
  • 1/4 cup walnut halves
  • 1/2 cup arugula
  • 1/2 lemon (juiced)
  • drizzle of honey
  • salt and pepper (to taste)


If you're not a fan of brie, this pizza would be delicious topped with blue or goat cheese.


1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Roll out pizza dough into a thin, even square or circle on a piece of parchment and place on baking sheet.
2. Meanwhile, heat a non stick skillet over medium high heat and add onion. Cook for about 5-10 minutes, or until brown and tender.
3. Spread onion pieces in an even layer over pizza dough. Top evenly with pear slices, walnut halves, and brie. Drizzle with honey over top. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes, until dough is brown and brie has melted.
4. While pizza is cooking, toss arugula in a small bowl with lemon juice, salt, and pepper. When pizza is done, remove from oven and top with arugula mixture.
