Combine cereal, almond milk, 1/2 cup water, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a saucepan. Cook according to cereal directions.
Meanwhile, melt butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add pear, cranberries, honey, orange zest, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and a generous pinch of salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until fruit is tender but not mushy and flavors have blended, 6 to 8 minutes, adding water a few tablespoons at a time once or twice and stirring up browned bits from skillet. Remove from heat.
Divide cereal between 2 bowls. Divide fruit mixture between bowls, top with pecans, drizzle with additional honey if desired, and serve.
