FIG-ARUGULA-BACON PIZZA



Fig Arugula Pizza



We had nothing planned out for dinner yesterday which ended up being a great thing. Wanna know why? Because I made one of the best pizzas in the history of ever. The combination of sweet and savory plus in my book you can never go wrong with FIG, ARUGULA, or BACON. I adapted this recipe from Ree Drummond of Food Network. You can find her recipe here.

I bought multigrain pizza dough from Whole Foods. Was going to go big and make cauliflower pizza crust buuuuut that can be a process and I concluded that the toppings on this pizza would pair much better with regular dough.

Figs are out of season so I bought Organic Fig Spread (Fiordifrutta, which can be found at Whole Foods). It’s amazeballs and can be used for so many recipes. Fig jam/jelly would work fine too.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 500°. Place rack in lowest position possible. Cook bacon and pat dry, chop, set aside.
  2. Roll out pizza dough on floured surface, place on greased baking sheet (which I used, and greased w/ coconut oil) or pizza stone.
  3. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Spread fig spread over surface, sprinkle with mozzarella and parmesan cheese.
  5. Bake (remember on lowest rack!) for 10-15 minutes until it gets golden brown and bubbly and delicious-looking!
  6. Remove from oven and distribute arugula, chopped bacon and cheeses on top. Repeat this a couple times.
  7. Place back in oven for 5 minutes or less – until the the cheese is melted and arugula is soft. Keep an eye out during this step to ensure no burnt pizza crust bottoms!
