Fig and prosciutto pizza
Servings: 2 servings
Figs are a polarizing fruit, for people either love them or hate them. I happen to love them, and I created this pizza while looking for something special to pair with prosciutto. Figs happened to be in season, and the PAF pizza was born!
- In a medium size-mixing bowl mix warm water and yeast.
- Next add 1 cup of flour and salt then gently mix.
- Add the next cup of flour to the mixture and slowly knead the dough.
- Form the dough into a small ball and tightly cover the bowl with plastic wrap.
- Put the bowl in a warm area and let it rest for about an hour
- Remove the dough and knead for a few minutes.
- Put it back in the bowl and let it rest for another 1/2 hour.
- When you’re done it’s time to make pizza,
- Place the figs on a small to medium sized cutting board, and remove the stems.
- Cut the figs in half from the growing end to the flowering end and place into a medium size bowl.
- Grab a handful of arugula and sprinkle it over top of the pizza and let the heat from the pizza slightly wilt the greens and then slice and serve.
- The best part about this pizza is the arugula, which also doubles as the garnish.
- The vibrant green color gives you the hint of elegance that food needs.
- This pizza can be served on a plate or a wooden cutting board for extra umph.
