Brie and Pear Pizza


Sometimes at night, I dream of brie.  I am a lover of cheeses, and brie is up at the very top of my favorite cheese.  I love the combination of brie, pears, and onions- I have made it as quesadillas, bruschetta, and sandwiches.  The next logical step was to put it on a pizza.

This is very similar to my Blue Cheese, Pear, & Fig Pizza (which is also delicious) , but trust me- the brie takes it to a whole other level.
