I had purchased some pre-made pizza dough from my grocer’s the other day. Today was my last day to use it and I knew I wouldn’t have time after work tonight so I busted home at lunch to make some good grub. Reason #235 why I love living so close to work. Back in October Nick and I went on a Caribbean Cruise. While on one of my many binges on the boat I tried a cheese plate that came with fig and goat cheese. AWESOME combo. I would have NEVER thought to put these together let alone try a stinking fig. I thought they were only for Newtons.
This flatbread came out really good. Really good. The flavors are really unique but easy to enjoy.
Pre-made pizza dough
7 Dried, Adriatic Figs (thinly sliced)
4 oz. Chevre (soft goat cheese)
1/2 cup fresh Mozzarella (sliced)
2 tbsp. fresh sage (rough chop)
1. Pre-heat oven to 475 degrees
2. Roll out, toss or pull your pizza dough on a floured surface to as thin as you can make it
3. Sprinkle corn meal on cookie sheet or pizza stone
4. Lay your dough the pan
5. Drizzle edges of dough with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt
6. Crumble the Chevre all over your pizza
7. Sprinkle figs evenly over cheese.
8. Lay your mozzarella slices evenly over the top of your pie. They don’t need to touch. Don’t worry, they will melt and spread.
9. Bake in oven for about 15-20 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted and begins to brown
10. Sprinkle fresh sage over melted cheese. Enjoy!
