Fig and Prosciutto Pizza

To make the best pizzas, you'll need a pizza stone, which is placed on an oven rack and heats up while you prepare the dough, and a pizza peel, a flat board with a long handle that lets you deposit the pizza intact on the stone. If you don't have a pizza peel, use a large piece of cardboard instead.

  • 2 rounds Figs Pizza Dough
  • Cornmeal, for sprinkling
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 pinches salt
  • 2 pinches freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1/2 cup Fig Jam
  • 4 ounces Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled into pea-sized pieces
  • 3 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto
  • 1 scallion, thinly sliced lengthwise, for garnish


  1. One hour prior to cooking, place a baking stone in the oven, and heat to 500 degrees.

  2. Roll out one pizza dough as thinly as possible. Place it on a pizza peel sprinkled with cornmeal. Cover the surface with 1 teaspoon oil, 1/4 teaspoon minced garlic, 1 pinch each salt and pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon chopped rosemary. Leave an uncovered, 1-inch-wide outer lip all the way around.

  3. Evenly dot 1/4 cup fig jam and 2 ounces Gorgonzola cheese on the pizza. Top with half the prosciutto.

  4. Shake the peel lightly, and slide the pizza onto the baking stone. Bake until browned, about 6 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a firm surface and cut into slices. Serve immediately, garnished with half the sliced scallion. Repeat with remaining dough.
