Preheat oven to 375F. Cover a large, rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.
Cut bacon strips into 1-inch pieces and place on the baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, or until just crisp. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to a plate lined with paper towels to drain excess fat.
Cut each pear into ½-inch slices, then into 1-inch pieces. Lay them out on a cutting board and sprinkle VERY lightly with paprika, cinnamon, and salt. So pretty!
Top each piece of pear with a square of bacon and spear with a toothpick. Pop into your mouth. Enjoy.
