Fig and Goat Cheese Specialty Pizza
Need an emergency fallback recipe? I do! Personal pan pizza is not a novel idea by any means, but it’s definitely one of my go-to emergency make and bakes. I make personal pizzas many ways, but one of my favorite fallback blends begins on naan bread; either whole grain or basic white.
I have to be honest, my family does not eat this fig and goat cheese specialty pizza I’m about to share with you; it’s my favorite. They are most likely eating one of the following yummy combos, that yes, I like too;
- Sauce and fresh sliced mozzarella
- Sauce, fresh slice mozzarella and turkey pepperoni
- White pizza with tomatoes, olive oil and basil with fresh sliced mozzarella
- Basil Pesto and fresh mozzarella
- Sun-dried tomato basil and fresh mozzarella
Okay, enough about those…let’s chat about my Fig and Goat Cheese yumminess. There’s spinach, olive oil and fresh garlic in the mix. And, when it’s finished baking, I drizzle a little balsamic glaze on top and WOW, it’s the perfect finishing touch.
- 2 whole grain naan bread
- 2 cups fresh baby leaf spinach
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 small clove of garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup dried figs
- 3 oz. honey goat cheese
- Balsamic Glaze
- Nonstick cooking spray
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Coat a large baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
Place the naan breads on the coated baking sheet.
Toss the spinach with the olive oil and minced garlic. Divide the spinach and place approximately a cup on each naan bread.
Cut the figs into quarter pieces and/or slice them and place evenly divide and distribute on each naan bread.
Finely chop the honey goat cheese and sprinkle approximately 1 1/2 ounces on each naan breads.
Bake the pizzas in the oven for approximately 15 minutes.
Drizzle it with balsamic glaze before serving.
Goat Cheese? You can find the honey goat cheese in the specialty cheese area at your local Price Chopper/Market 32 Supermarkets near the deli area.
Mozzarella? You can use the pre-sliced fresh mozz or the shredded mozz, but I personally like to slice it when I’m making our personal pan pizzas on naan breads. We do use the others in various other pizza scenarios. When I’m making pizza on naan I like to slice it very thin, almost like a shaved affect.
Dried Figs? These are typically found in the produce aisle on specialty shelves t your local Price Chopper/Market 32 Supermarkets. Purchase the dried figs with no added sugar, just straight up figs is all that you want for this yumminess.
