As I like to say, I’m really good at eating pizza. Like, so talented. Probably a little too good, I shouldn’t brag.
And with this talent, comes responsibility. I can’t just be ordering pizzas every night, now can I? (My wallet says NO.) So I’ve learned how to make my own, thanks to Trader Joes and the miracle that is their pre-made pizza dough. My favorite is the whole wheat because then I can pretend that I’m an uber healthy person who does yoga 5 times a week. I’ve made all kinds of pizza in the past, but tonight I put FIG JAM ON PIZZA AND IT WAS MAGICAL. So I’m going to give you the recipe I concocted and when you make this please send all thank-yous in the form of cash and/or sour gummy bears.
Peach, Caramelized Onion & Fig Jam Pizza
You will need:Pizza Dough Olive Oil Cheese Blend – I like Trader Joe’s Quattro Formaggio Burrata 1 peach Arugula 1 half onion, caramelized fig jam – I buy mine at Ralphs, pretty sure you can get it any grocery store near the “fancy cheeses” Optional (but highly recommended) – Balsamic Glaze (Also found at Trader Joes)
Pre-heat oven to preferred temperature. I like 450 degrees and I use a pizza stone. Let pizza stone heat up in the oven while you prep everything else.
Roll out pizza dough. Tip: this is easier to do if you let the dough sit outside of the fridge for 10-15 minutes.
I like to assemble everything (carefully) on the hot pizza stone, so get all of your toppings ready while it is heating in the oven.
When pizza stone is hot, remove very carefully and transfer dough to pizza stone. Start assembling your pizza. For this pizza, I added a little olive oil, the cheese blend, caramelized onions, burrata, peach slices, and the fig jam first. Just put dollops of the fig jam and the burrata around on the top of the pizza.
Carefully transfer back to oven and bake at your desired temp until cheese is bubbly and crust looks nice and brown. For me, at 450 degrees that takes about 15-20 minutes.
When pizza is done, transfer to cutting board or counter and add arugula and balsamic glaze.
ZOMG it is so good. I may never eat anything else again. The fig jam is seriously the kicker.
I hope you make this. And then have a dance party in your kitchen.
Grab a slice fast. This won’t last long!
