An elegant appetizer - or add a salad and serve as a light meal.
For bread: Mix flour, undissolved yeast, sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt and spices in a large bowl. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil and water. Stir until well mixed. Cover and let rise in a warm, draft free place for 30 minutes (will not double in bulk).
Pat dough into a 10-inch circle with oiled fingers on a greased pizza pan. Dough should be about 1/2-inch thick. Poke holes into the dough about 2 inches apart, using fingers or the handle of a wooden spoon.
For topping: Drizzle bread with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Sprinkle evenly with cheeses and olives. Slice pear into fourths; core. Cut each fourth into thin slices. Place pears evenly on the dough and top with walnuts and remaining 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt.
Bake in preheated 375°F oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until golden. Serve warm.
