    Sweet Baboo's Note:

    I found this recipe in the Toronto Star, December 26, 2007, rated one of the best recipes of the year. It is a lovely brunch pizza..."do not use a non-stick skillet for the onions, and don't skimp on the pear; it adds the right touch of sweetness". Preparation time will be longer if using home-made pizza dough.

      What an interesting take on pizza. I left out the curry powder on the onions since I am not a fan of curry powder, but other than that kinda major change I made as stated. My family enjoyed the contrasts of tastes, but I dont know if I'll be trying fruit on my pizza again anytime soon. But it was a great change from you average pizza dinner! Also the directions for making the carmelized onions were very detailed and easy to follow if you have never made carmelized onions before.
