We moved into our house 4 years ago and every year we still find surprises. This year, a weed I was too lazy to pull, turned into a fig tree. It provides for a great view outside my kitchen window. We didn't get many figs, but I was thrilled because a caterer friend tantalized me with tales of making fig and gorgonzola pizza with figs from her tree. It is simple and delicious.
Fig and gorgonzola cheese pizza
1 large yellow onion
about 1/2 pound gorgonzola cheese
8-10 figs, sliced
Slice yellow onion and saute over medium-low heat until nicely caramelized. Roll out pizza dough and brush with olive oil. Spread out on the bottom of the rolled out dough.
Add figs and crumbled gorgonzola cheese. (I used a creamy gorgonzola cheese called dolcelatte gorgonzola but you can use any kind you like.) Salt and pepper to taste.
Bake on the bottom rack of a 500 degree oven for 8-10 minutes, until crust is slightly brown. Remove from oven. Serve hot. Enjoy!
