Can’t imagine improving on two of my favorite ingredients Fresh Figs and Goat Cheese. We love, love, love, Fig and Goat Cheese Pizza. Have made it on Naan Bread, Pocketless Pitas, and pre-made pizza doughs. Always pretty straight forward, olive oil, figs, goat cheese, some herbs bake and eat. Always delicious and satisfying.
But today, really felt like jazzing it up. Started with the base of Trader Joe’s Rustic Ciabatta Flatbread, brushed on some extra virgin olive oil, baked it for 4 minutes in hot oven, pulled it out and added caramelized red onion strings, halved small fresh black figs that I pre-soaked in balsamic vinegar, dollops of Chevre, crumbled cooked bacon and a sprinkle of Fines Herbes. A quick drizzle of balsamic vinegar and back into the oven for 8 minutes! Let sit for a few moments and a drizzle of Spanish EVOO and a grinding of black pepper and it’s called heaven on a plate! A very nice quick summer meal with a salad.
