Fig You Pizza
1 lb pizza dough (we like this recipe)
2-3 ounces Parmesan, grated (try other cheese too)*
about 2 ounces prosciutto
two generous handfuls of arugula, gently tossed with a little olive oil and coarse sea salt
truffle oil to taste
yellow cornmeal, for sprinkling the baking sheet
Preheat the oven to between 500 to 550 degrees F with a baking stone inside. Sprinkle about 2 to 3 tablespoons of yellow cornmeal on pizza peel or baking sheet, then place your pizza dough on top. Lightly sprinkle truffle oil over the pizza dough, then spread some fig spread on, enough to coat it but not too thick. Lay half the prosciutto on top. Sprinkle with Parmesan, then slide the pizza onto the baking stone.
Bake until the crust is browned and the cheese is melted, about 5-8 minutes. Take the pizza out and top with the rest of the prosciutto and a mound of dressed arugula. Sprinkle with truffle oil.
*An amazing variation (thanks to Fog lover, Caroline) that I like to call the "Fig Fog Pizza," is to use Humboldt Fog cheese, which is the best cheese on earth.
6 ounces sliced manchego cheese
Place a pizza stone on the lowest rack of the oven and preheat to between 500 to 550 degrees F with a baking stone inside. Sprinkle about 2 to 3 tablespoons of yellow cornmeal on a baker's peel or baking sheet. Place the rolled out pizza dough on the prepared baker's peel or baking sheet.
