Truth: I received 3 emails yesterday, from different friends/readers having something to do with figs.
Ramona sent me photos of her fig trees (jealous). Debby sent me an email about her dreamy fig panna cotta dessert, and Rosemary sent me a fresh fig ice cream recipe.
People must really think I have a problem.
I finally found some fresh, ripe, fat, dripping with goodness figs. But I paid $5.99 for the box, so they'd better be good.
Why not a pizza?
I used Naan flat bread, but you can use pizza dough, homemade or not, for this easy end of summer dinner.
For 2 flat breads: I sauteed 1 onion with some fresh rosemary, kosher salt & pepper.
Scatter some dollops of fresh ricotta on the dough/breads and top with the cooked onion mixture. Slice figs nice and thin and top the pizzas with them.
Drizzle some olive oil over all, kosher salt and pepper and either grill or bake at 400F for about 10 minutes.
Top with some arugula and drizzle w/ more olive oil & a drizzle of good balsamic vinegar to finish and enjoy!
