Fig & Ricotta Flatbread Pizza

fig pizza2

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!

Gosh I miss figs. Use to have a tree where I grew up and now they are also hard to get, expensive and no so good sometimes. Great idea, looks yummy by the way we are practically neighboors :-)

I was just talking to someone about figs. I love wrapping them with prosciutto. I never thought about using Naan bread as the pizza base. I like that idea so much better than basic pita.

Figs, arugula and flatbread... could it be any better?? All my favorites! Friday is our 38th wedding anniversary (yikes!). I may need to make this to eat along with all of our champagne toasts!

I have a fig tree but, it being Winter here, I'll have to wait a few months before it's in fruit...still, I can always buy some to make this delicious pizza. Thanks for the recipe Stacey...always great to see what you've come up with.

Nann bread is such a great idea, I love the shape of it too, quick and elegant, I can just taste how good this is!

we get fresh figs from our fig trees and usually eat them as is! What a great idea to make a pizza especially with ready-made naan bread!

Dana said...

My Amazon Fresh guy emailed me about doing a fig flatbread post/recipe. I think you know how I feel about figs. So I am going to have to look to you for inspiration if he makes me write it!

WOW! What a great idea! Too bad my naan bread comes out looking like a hand - your comment cracked me up!
