Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Pizza cooks well under hot heat.

Stretch out a thin layer of  pizza dough to desired thickness on a lightly greased pizza pan. Add a layer of the béchamel sauce and ricotta cheese.  Scatter desired amount of shallots, pears and blackberries evenly on the pizza. Keep note – more fresh pear and blackberries will be added after the pizza is cooked.

**Note:If you would like the pizza to be more cheesy, go ahead and add a bit of mozzarella.

Throw the pizza into the oven and cook until the crust is golden brown and the top of the pizza is well cooked. Approximately 10-15 minutes depending on oven.

** Note: If you would like a crunchier crust, precook the pizza dough in the oven for about 5-10 minutes before adding the toppings.

Once cooked, add fresh slices of pear, fresh blackberries (halved) and chunks of burrata.  Garnish with arugula and salt & pepper to taste.

Béchamel Sauce Directions:

In a saucepan, melt butter. Stir in flour and continue to stir until it’s well incorporated (don’t let it brown). This should take about 1-2 minutes.  Slowly add milk and continue to stir until sauce thickens to desired thickness. Bring to a slight boil,  season with salt and pepper, lower heat and let cool.

Don’t mind the crispy dark bites. Added Crunch 🙂
