Fig and Prosciutto Pizza

Fig and Prosciutto Pizza

I told you guys I was proclaiming this the Summer of Pizza. We have had it a LOT lately, and every time I try to mix it up a little. Fig butter and prosciutto are ingredients I don’t use all that often, so I was intrigued by the combination. The sweetness of the fig butter is quite a nice complement to the smoky saltiness of the prosciutto, and they worked great together in Fig and Prosciutto Pizza.

For Fig and Prosciutto Pizza, you either need a store-bought pizza crust or you can make your own like this one on LifeInGrace. You will also need a jar of fig butter or fig preserves. I used fig butter I found at Trader Joe’s, and I can highly recommend it. However, if you are like me and don’t live anywhere near a Trader Joe’s, just pick up a jar of fig preserves from your local grocery. It’ll do. You’ll also need a handful of arugula and some high quality fresh parmesan.

Roll out the pizza dough to the size you want. Cover with a thin coat of fig butter.

Bake on 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes or so. Keep a close check on it so the crust doesn’t burn.

When the crust is turning golden and the prosciutto is beginning to brown, pull it out of the oven. Top with a handful of fresh arugula and top with shaved parmesan. Enjoy your Fig and Prosciutto Pizza!
