Ah Summer... I love your colors.
And fresh produce.
And flowers and bright morning light.
It's not a new flavor combination, but fresh sweet figs, salty prosciutto, and Gorgonzola come together to make my favorite pizza.
Grilled Pizza with Figs, Gorgonzola, Prosciutto, and Basil
printer friendly recipe
makes 2 pizzas, serving 6-8
2 prepared pizza doughs, that have rested at room temperature for one hour covered so they don't dry out
8 oz fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced or in small balls
8 oz crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
1/2 large sweet yellow onion, halved and thinly sliced
about 1 cup fresh black figs, cut into wedges or slices
3 oz prosciutto
1 cup fresh basil leaves
Heat grill over medium heat. Oil grate.
Roll dough into two long rectangles. Have all toppings next to grill. Place dough grill and cook until there are nice dark grill marks, about 3 minutes. Flip over. Quickly top crust with mozzarella, Gorgonzola, onions, and figs. Cook until cheese has melted and bottom of crust has grill marks. Remove from grill and top with prosciutto and basil.
