Pizza with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce, Pears, and Feta

This is a little unusual, but it's definitely a winner, with enthusiastic endorsement from everyone from my five year old to my mother-in-law.  Use pears that are nicely ripe but not mushy.  Substitute goat cheese for the feta if you like.

1 14-inch pizza crust
olive oil
3/4 cup Fire Roasted Red Pepper and Eggplant Sauce
1 medium-large pear, cored sliced 1/4-inch thick
3 oz crumbled feta
2 oz. shredded mozzarella (optional)

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.  Lightly paint the pizza crust with olive oil.

Spread the red pepper sauce over the pizza crust, then layer with the pear and feta.  Add mozzarella if desired.

Bake for 15-18 minutes, until crust is done and cheese begins to brown.

Serves 3-4.
