Pizza with Fresh Figs and Goat Cheese
My fig tree gave me it's first lovely figs of the summer. For tonights dinner I made a pizza with figs, goat cheese, pine nuts and a lovely sweet thick basalmic glaze. I had some frozen pizza dough and the recipe for the dough is right on the TFL front page list of recipes or just click Here.
I stretched the dough nice and thin and thicker for the crown. It made a lovely crispy pizza crust.
I first drizzled a little extra virgin olive oil. Then a drizzle of delicious balsamic glaze, topped it with sliced fanned out figs, dollops of fresh goat cheese and a sprinkly of fresh pine nuts. All the flavors just blend so deliciously together. This pizza makes a delicious appetizer.
Baked it in a one hour pre-heated 550F convection heat oven with a pizza stone until nicely browned and a little char.
