Pear and Gorgonzola Mini Pizzas

This is just about the simplest thing to make ever. I had mini whole wheat pitas from Trader Joe's, and all I did was first brush with a thin layer of olive oil. Then I thinly sliced a very ripe pear and added some crumbled gorgonzola cheese on top. I was already using the oven to cook up a butternut squash and some roasted broccoli, so when they were almost done, I added the pizzas. They took about 10 minutes in the oven, and the cheese got all melty and oozy, and the pears softened and sweetened. With a quick grind of pepper, they were ready to nom. Awesome! This would be easy on a regular pizza crust, too, and additional toppings like honey, sliced pecans or caramelized onions would make it aweseomer.*
Bon appetit!

*No, that is not a word. But I just used it anyway.
