I have always wanted to try making a fig pizza and National Fig Week is the perfect time to do it!
- 1 pound prepared pizza dough (in refrigerator section of grocery store) at room temperature
- 3 fresh figs
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 4 ounces goat cheese
- 2 ounces (3 thin slices) prosciutto di Parma, cut up into bite size peices
- Olive oil
- 2 cups spinach
- maple dressing (recipe below)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place about 1-2 tablespoons olive oil in a non-stick skillet and heat over medium heat. Add onions and saute until the onions are caramelized (about 15 minutes). Lower the heat if the onions are cooking too fast.
Lightly flour a large wood board and roll out pizza dough. Move dough to a preheated pizza stone or a baking sheet. Brush the dough with 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil. Just enough to lightly coat the dough. Wash and dry figs. Cut off the stems, slice figs in half and then slice each half into 4-5 slices depending on the thickness of the fig. Spread figs, caramelized onions and goat cheese evenly over the prepared dough. Place in oven and cook 10-15 minutes or until crust is cooked to your liking.
In the meantime, mix the spinach in a bowl with the maple dressing and set aside. Once the pizza is done, remove from oven and immediately top with spinach. Let sit for 5 minutes or until spinach wilts slightly. Serve warm.
Maple Dressing: 2 tablespoons olive oil, 2 teaspoons of Maple vinegar(see Saratoga Olive Oil Post) and a pinch of salt. Mix all ingredients in a small bowl until combined.
