Pre-bake the Cali’flour Crust or flatbreads as instructed in an oven at 375-400 on a vented pizza pan, pizza screen, or on a non-stick cookie sheet lined with parchment paper for 12-14 minutes. Remove from oven and let rest for a minimum of 10 minutes. Prior to serving with salad, top with cheese crumbles and return to oven on high broil for 4-5 min to warm cheese. Remove and cut into individual serving sizes.

*Dip pear slices into water with the juice of half a lemon to prevent them from browning.
