Ginger's Fig and Goat Cheese Pizza
2 12-inch pizzas, or 1 13x18 Sheet Tray
Our friend, Ginger, wears many hats around the bakery — late-night labeler, early-morning bread-bagger, and occasional pizza cook. Sweet, salty, and creamy, this is our interpretation of one of her creations. It’s like a cheeseboard on a pizza, so thaw some dough, chill some wine, and call up your friends.
Set baking stone on middle rack and preheat oven to 500ºF.
Melt the butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Thinly slice the onion and add to the pan along with a pinch of salt. Lower the heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until caramelized (20-25 minutes).
While the onions cook, whisk 3/4 cup Luna Grown fig jam with 3 tablespoons water until smooth and sauce-like (you may need to add up to 2 tablespoons more water for desired consistency). Set aside.
In another bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and a generous cracking of black pepper until emulsified. Set aside.
Prep pizza dough, either two rounds or one tray, as discussed here. When onions are done, spread dough with jam. Top with caramelized onions and dot with goat’s cheese. Bake for 6-8 minutes until golden.
While pizza bakes toss greens with prepared vinaigrette. Once the pizza is out of the oven, immediately top with dressed greens, slice, and serve.
