Life & Fig Pizza

Life has been a bit nuts. I’m heading to Malawi next week for work, and have been traveling because of the holidays.

Anyhow, this is a pizza recipe my friend Lindsay concocted and it is fabulous. Enjoy!

Makes 1 pizza

Pizza dough, store bought raw dough or make your own
1 cup Arugula
3 figs, sliced
1 small onion, sliced and caramelized (use a medium onion if making more than 1 pizza)
3 oz. Fresh Mozzarella Cheese, sliced
1/2 Tsp. Basil, dried
1 Tbsp. Olive oil

1. Preheat oven to 350 or use the grill.

2. Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat, add onions, 1/8 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp pepper and let cook until caramelized.

3. Roll out pizza dough and bake for 5 minutes or until cooked.

4. Top pizza crust with the remaining olive oil, onions, figs, mozzarella and basil. Bake in oven (about 14 min) or grill (about 10 min) until cheese is melted and crust is crispy and brown. Top cooked pizza with arugula and enjoy!!
