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.

Notes

More on making this specialty pizza;

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.  

Love Pizza?  We do!  Check out my no rise pizza dough.  It’s super delicious and easy to make.  They are great to make ahead and use as the base of your personal pan pizza.  Any of the options above are equally delicious on this base.  Pizza is all about having fun!

  7. Goat milk is often consumed by young children, the elderly, those who are ill, or have a low tolerance to cow’s milk. Goat milk is more similar to human milk than that of the cow, although there is large variation among breeds in both animals. Although the West has popularized the cow, goat milk and goat cheese are preferred dairy products in much of the rest of the world. Because goat cheese is often made in areas where refrigeration is limited, aged goat cheeses are often heavily treated with salt to prevent decay. As a result, salt has become associated with the flavor of goat cheese.”
