Well said. Fruit is a funny thing to put on pizza.
One place near my house, otherwise good, does a peach and ricotta pizza. If you can forget that it's pizza, then it's sort of in the fruit-and-cottage-cheese family of food.
One exception I make to the fruit on pizza thing is figs and goat cheese and pears, primarily from The Red Grape, a place just off Sonoma Plaza. Definitely not fruit-and-cottage-cheese family. Superb thin crust, just-singed on the bottom, crunchy/chewy, and slightly caramelized flavors of figs and pears mingled with the cheese, makes it a savory delight.
