Surprisingly easy to make and absolutely scrumptious!
Ready to roll pizza dough or store-bough pizza base
1 to 2 tbsp olive oil
8-10 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese sliced into 1/4″ to 1/2″ rounds
5-6 figs sliced into 1/4″ slices
salt and freshly-ground pepper
10 very thin slices Prosciutto
2-3 tbsp good-quality balsamic vinegar (the syrupy kind)
Preheat your oven to 500 degrees.
Spread enough olive oil over the surface of the dough to form a very thin coating. Lay the slices of mozzarella down, not quite touching each other. Place the fig slices in between the cheese. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Slide the pizza onto your pizza stone in the oven, and bake for 15-20 minutes, until the dough is cooked and golden, the cheese is melted, and the figs are nice and juicy. As soon as you remove the pizza from the oven, top it with the slices of prosciutto. Right before serving, drizzle with the balsamic.
