This Asian Pear and Smoked Sausage Flatbread Pizza also includes red onions tossed in fresh thyme and olive oil, all baked on a bed of Fontina cheese.

After making this apple and ham pizza, which was so delicious, I thought I'd play around with Asian pears on pizza! Way better than pineapple.

This sausage and pepper soup is both hearty and light. Each bowl is filled with just a little bit of everything included in the soup. The broth is super flavorful too. There's the umami from Worcestershire sauce as well as one of my favorite finds, sherry vinegar.
