Prosciutto + Fig Jam Pizza



Some things just go together...peanut butter and jelly...oil and vinegar...bananas and chocolate...oh and proscuitto and fig jam.  No really, this is a match made in heaven!  I normally take mine with a little smear of brie, but I was practically drooling when I saw this version on Pioneer Woman.  The peppery arugula and creamy mozzarella only helps to bring this together.  It's a little sweet, little earthy and a whole lot amazing!

{ingredients}

Pizza Crust {homemade or store bought}
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
4 Tablespoons Fig Spread Or Jam
Kosher Salt To Taste
12 ounces, weight Fresh Mozzarella, Sliced Thin
6 ounces, weight Thinly Sliced Prosciutto
1 bunch Washed And Rinsed Arugula
Freshly Ground Pepper, to taste
1/2 cup Shaved Parmesan

{method}

Drizzle pizza dough or crust lightly with olive oil and sprinkle lightly with kosher salt. Spread fig spread (or jam) all over the surface of the dough. Sprinkle lightly with salt.

Lay sliced of mozzarella all over the surface. Sprinkle lightly with salt and freshly ground pepper. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until crust is golden and cheese is bubbly.

Remove from oven and immediately lay prosciutto over hot pizza. Just before serving, sprinkle on arugula and Parmesan shavings.

Cut into wedges or squares and serve immediately!


Best enjoyed with a nice glass of red!

Cheers!
