Figs, Brie and Prosciutto Flat Bread

Well its hard to believe another September has come and gone, but it has.  Over the weekend John and I went to Costco as I walking into the fruits aisle I spotted a huge box of fresh figs for only $6.  I knew I had to get some right away.  Last night for dinner we did fig flat bread pizza and boy it was so good! A deliciously delightful combination of luscious fruit and tangy, creamy cheese that you will never want to stop eating. This would make for a great little appetizer to bring along to a dinner,  or wine party.

Printable Recipe
1 pizza dough or store bought
corn meal for dusting
brie cheese
4 prosciutto slices
2 tablespoons fig jam
6 fresh figs, sliced into 1/8 inch rings
a handful of  baby arugula
extra virgin olive oil
drizzle of honey

For the best results I would use a pizza stone in a 450F degree, preheated oven or grill. 
Roll out pizza dough to 1/4" thick, rectangle to fit baking sheet.  Which has been dusted with corn meal.   Pierce dough with fork all over so it will not bubble up.  Bake for 5 minutes.  Remove from oven spread fig jam over dough.  Add thin slices of brie and strips of prosciutto.  Cut figs into 1/8" rings and sprinkle on top of prosciutto.  Drizzle olive oil all over.
Place in oven and bake for  another 7-10 minutes until dough is nice and golden but not burnt.  Slide onto a cutting board and top with baby arugula, drizzle with honey and serve warm.

This recipe looks amazing! I also have never had experience with figs but after these images I think I’m ready to give it a whirl!

This pizza looks great. There's a place near where I live that has a version of Fig Pizza on their menu as well but I think I'll have to try making this one soon.

This pizza looks so amazing! I'm so intrigued, I shared this with friends in my weekly Friday Food Fetish blog here:

I hope you don't mind, but let me know if you do.

I saw this on last night and sent it to my wife for inspiration, and she made a pizza with a similar idea tonight! Thanks for the post!

This pizza looks absolutely beautiful. I'm always stuck with Asian food and I can't even cup up with this kind of gorgeous and yummy dish. Thanks for inspiration. I'll definitely try this - it's more for a party as my kids probably don't like figs... but I am not giving up. I need someone else to eat with me!!!!! ;-)
