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!

    I just bought some fig jam the other day at the store – I think I see flatbreads in my near future! I love the combination of the figs, prosciutto and arugula – so good! Happy Monday Anne!

    I love arugula! This is the kind of pizza I wish I’d ate after I have some sort of meat lover’s slice! Looks beautiful and delicious, Anne. Have a great week! It is nice and cool where I am!

    Great combination of flavors – the sweetness of figs & fig jam, the sharpness of arugula and the saltiness of the prosciutto – plus the creamy goodness of fresh mozzarella !!!

    When Anne brought home the jar of fig butter I was curious. “What are thinking of making with that?”
    “A fig flat bread pizza.”
    Mind was blown. This is a deceptively simple recipe, with a sophisticated looking outcome. And the fig butter really tied everything together.

    Anne, this is just stunning. I grew up with a fig tree in the side yard, and I love fig everything. :) Thanks for sharing this beautiful recipe!

    Love, Joy

    Oh, girl…this pizza looks sooooo good! (I’m hungry for dinner and just visited Kristin’s blog and saw her Fig Dressing recipe!) I’m drooling. Gorgeous photography! It is sweltering hot here in Indy, too. Temps in the mid-90s this week. It’s still summer here! :) I need some fig butter in my life…pronto. Thanks for sharing, Anne! Pinning!

    We have a fig tree in our front yard that I hadn’t utilized as I wasn’t that familiar with figs and what to do with them. Recently, though, a friend of ours made a fig, walnut, and honey appetizer that was so delicious. And now I have your pizza recipe also. Your pictures are so pretty, and the recipe sounds like a great combination of flavors. I’m so glad you posted it. Thank you!

    I think I could eat flatbreads/pizzas every day and not get tired of them! This looks gorgeous! I keep eyeing this fig spread at the grocery store but haven’t bought it yet. Now I have the perfect reason to buy it. :) I adore fresh figs. I had my first fresh one when I was in Greece quite a few years ago and it was one of the best things I’d ever eaten.

    You cannot go wrong with fresh figs and prosciutto, Anne, and tossing them on to a pizza is perfection. Great idea and I will be making this much sooner than later. Thanks. :)

    This looks delicious, Anne! Salad pizzas are a new favorite of mine. The lightness appeals to me in the summer. I love dried figs but, would you believe, I have never eaten fresh figs. I didn’t know what to do with them. Now I do. :) Thanks.
    Have you ever tried “baking” your pizza outside on a covered bbq grill? It saves the kitchen from heating up and produced a delicious crust incredibly fast.

    Such a lovely dish! I’ll eat figs in anything, and this pizza has such great flavor. Really nice, healthy, and fast. Good stuff! Thanks.
