Fig Prosciutto and Arugula Flatbread Pizza

Fig Prosciutto and Arugula Flatbread Pizza

We had an uneventful weekend.  It was scorching hot both Saturday and Sunday, and I wanted to limit my time in the kitchen as much as possible.  One of the meals was a quick pizza I put together.  Everything was basically ready to eat.  All I did was melt the cheese and warm up the bread.  Aren’t flatbreads wonderful? They make for a really quick meal.  Yes, I had the oven on on a scorching hot day, but it was for a short amount of time and totally worth it.

I love the combination of fig, prosciutto and arugula.  This is also a fantastic combination for a salad.  Have a great week!
