  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Cook and stir bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until completely browned, about 10 minutes; remove bacon with a slotted spoon to a plate lined with paper towel to drain.
  3. Spread pesto over the pizza crust to cover in a thin layer to within 1/2 inch of the edges. Sprinkle about 1/2 the mozzarella cheese over the pesto. Arrange bacon pieces and pear slices atop the cheese; dot with crumbled goat cheese and top with remaining mozzarella cheese.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until the cheese is melted, 9 to 10 minutes.

I cheated a bit and made my own flatbread crust, so it started out better than a purchased crust would have made it. I also did not have bacon. Thought I did, but nope! I used capocolo instead, and it was good! I also threw a bit of arugula on top after baking, because I like it that way. IT would have been good without it, and if I had only had some bacon, it would have been great. The smokiness is just what it needed. Ok, ok! I threw a few walnuts and figs on as well. It's a party! One thing I would do to improve this is to use just a bit more pesto. I made some just for this recipe, and wish I had used it all instead of just 2 tablespoons. I'll be making tis again. Nice flavors!
