Equipment

  • pizza stone or pizza pan
  • Rolling Pin
  • pastry brush
  • small fry pan

Ingredients

Balsamic Glaze

  • ½ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon honey

Pizza

  • 1 pizza crust homemade or store-bought
  • 3-4 ripe figs, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1.5 ounces prosciutto, thinly sliced (3-4 slices)
  • 6 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese (I used pre-sliced)
  • ounces fresh arugula (about 2 cups)

Instructions

Balsamic Glaze

  • Make the balsamic glaze first since it needs time to cool and thicken. Add the balsamic vinegar and honey to a small frypan over med-high heat. Bring the mixture to a boil while stirring constantly. Lower the heat to a simmer and allow the mixture to reduce and thicken for 15-20 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and allow the glaze to cool and continue to thicken.

Pizza Assembly and Baking

  • Preheat the oven and pizza stone at 500°F. Roll out the pizza dough to a 12" round (if you made a homemade crust, this will be half of the dough). Once the oven is preheated, place the rolled-out crust in the oven and bake for 4 minutes and remove it from the oven. This step is optional but I find that it creates a crispier crust and prevents a soggy bottom from the heavy ingredients.
  • Brush the crust with olive oil. Place the mozzarella cheese, prosciutto, and fig slices on top of the olive oil. Place the pizza back into the oven and bake for an additional 13-15 minutes.
