Fresh Fig and Prosciutto Pizza with Balsamic and Feta

20130817-202337.jpg If you happened to grace your virtual presence upon my previous recipe (Yummy Spice Cake with Fresh Figs), you would know that I’ve had a love affair with figs since I was a child due to the fig tree in our back yard! Well, I’ve moved on from my child hood home and thus, my fig tree. Which leads me to another reason why I love Costco; Costco sells figs. Yesterday I made a dessert using figs, so naturally today I made a dinner using figs. And my oh my, was it deeeeelicious! Definitely making this again.

    Makes One Large Pizza

Ingredients

Cornmeal, for sprinkling
1 pizza dough (I used Trader Joe’s whole wheat)
1/4 cup pizza sauce
1 cup shredded mozzarella
1 cup mixed greens
2 large slices prosciutto, cut into 1 to 2 inch pieces
8 small figs (like Mission or Turkey), stemmed and cut into 8 wedges lengthwise
1/3 cup crumbled feta (or your favorite crumbled cheese)
Salt, Balsamic Vinegar, Dried Rosemary, Oregano & Basil (to taste).

Directions

Preheat oven to 450F. If using a pizza stone, allow the stone to heat up in the oven while it preheats. Prepare & roll out dough according to package directions. Sprinkle cornmeal on pizza pan and place dough on it. Evenly spread pizza sauce, followed by the mozzarella, mixed greens,* prosciutto,* figs, feta, and sprinkled with listed seasonings to taste. Bake for 10 minutes. Cool and enjoy!
*Note: some people prefer to add mixed greens and/or prosciutto to the pizza immediately after it comes out of the oven. To your taste!
