Porky Fig Pizza

My recipe of the day for today is a spin-off of a favorite pizza of mine from a local eatery, which they dub the porky fig pizza. My version is slightly different from theirs in the toppings and make-up but I do prefer mine (theirs has jam instead of sliced figs among other things).

You might think this is a sweet pizza with the addition of fig and honey, but really, it is not. The flavors are quite balanced by the gorgonzola cheese as well as the balsamic reduction. I know I wouldn't like a sweet pizza if it was not a dessert, so rest assured you have a nice savory pizza here.

I used ready to go whole wheat pizza dough from Trader Joe's, but feel free to use whichever you like.

I do think the whole wheat flavor is particularly suited for the flavors in this one. I don't always care for whole wheat dough in a pizza as I usually like a tangy sourdough with tomato sauce, but since this is simply dressed with olive oil you don't have to worry about that.

I used the Mission Figlets on my pizza, which as essentially just smaller figs. They are easy to slice, and if you use other sizes of figs, the required amount I have given in a measure as opposed to a quantity. So that is easy to figure out.

I love the flavor melange. This would be great at a pizza party for gameday along with a selection of other pizzas for variety. It is also an excellent choice for the countdown on New Year's Eve.

As our year comes to a close, I am sure you will find many occasions for it, including busy days since this one doesn't take long to make.

I hope you enjoy and don't forget to enter the giveaway sponsored by Valley Fig! Lots of yummy figs and and heavy stack of cookbooks could be yours. Good luck in the drawing!
