Normally we recommend all recipes made from scratch from start to finish. We also recognize, for us at least, that is simply not realistic. That is where this cauliflower crust pear and pesto pizza comes in.
Use our kale and walnut pesto for this pizza!
Busy jobs, kids, life in general and now covid... we want to be able to provide some quick vegan recipes.
We want all of our recipes to be nutritious, and delicious. Sometimes, you need to do that with the odd packaged component.
We have turned to this pizza as one of those options for us. Buy the crust, and add what you want.
Of course homemade everything is the best first choice.
Cooking doesn't have to be hard or time consuming, and we hope to show you that here. However, realistically you may not have 15 or 20 extra minutes somedays.

Cell repair is one of the benefits of eating pears.
One medium-sized pear contains about 8 milligrams of vitamin C. This vitamin is important for cell growth and repair as well as preventing oxidative damage. Vitamin C has been shown to support immune function, aid in the healing of cuts and bruises, and even protect against infectious diseases.verywellfit
We don't suggest freezing or refrigerating this recipe. With the pear and pesto it doesn't taste good.
Make what you need and eat it up right away!
Cauliflower Crust Pear and Pesto Pizza
- 1 cauliflower crust pre-made for this recipe
- 2 tablespoons kale and walnut pesto
- 1 pear sliced into wedges
- ¼ cup raw pecans crumbled
- 2 green onions chopped
- balsamic glaze topping
- Use our kale and walnut pesto for this pizza.
- Really simple folks. Buy a premade crust. Typically we would suggest a homemade crust but we also understand that sometime that is not always possible.
- Cover with pesto (as much or as little as you like).
- Add crumbled walnuts evenly over the pizza.
- Add chopped onions.
- Place pear slices on top.
- Put in the oven and bake according to crust directions.
- Drizzle with balsamic glaze when the pizza is finished.
- To make balsamic glaze, simply take ½ cup balsamic vinegar and reduce down to a syrup consistency over medium heat in a saucepan. A good quality balsamic vinegar might only take a few minutes to reduce down to a sweet, syrupy glaze. Don’t be tempted to add sugar to speed it up, it doesn’t help the flavor and is unwanted sugar.
