MOCHI CRUST WITH PEAR, PROSCIUTTO, AND PECAN

Traditional mochi, which is glutinous rice, creates a thick crust that is crunchy on the outside and gooey on the inside. (This preparation makes it thin and crispy.) Adding pears to a pizza may seem unusual, but the fruit’s sweetness pairs wonderfully with the salty ham. Avoid overloading the delicate mochi crust.

Socca Crust
By Betsy Nelson
Socca is a kind of crepe made with chickpea flour. It makes a delightfully delicate pizza crust. Try adding chopped herbs or spices to the batter before baking. It’s an Italian tradition to crack an egg onto a pizza and bake until it is just slightly set. When you cut into the pizza, the liquid yolk runs onto the crust and adds to the flavor.
