Ricotta Fig Pizza1 hour
- pizza dough, enough for a medium pizza
- 8 to 10 figs
- 2 cups ricotta
- 1/4 lb. proscuitto
- balsamic vinegar
Preheat oven to 350ºF degrees while you stretch out the pizza dough on an oiled and floured cookie sheet to 1/2 cm thickness. Prick with a fork to avoid air bubbles. Roll up edges if a defined crust is desired.
Drizzle dough with olive oil and bake in the oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until golden brown.
Whip two pinches of salt and two pinches of pepper into ricotta with wooden spoon. (Red pepper flakes can be added for an extra kick.) Spread over cooked crust.
Thinly slice figs and lay on pizza. Then add generous ribbons of prosciutto. Drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper, and place in broiler for 5 -7 minutes, or until figs have caramelized slightly.
Remove from oven and drizzle with balsamic vinegar. Revel in the decadence!
