Fig and Goat Cheese Pizza Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon olive oil, divided
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallot
  • 1 cup dried figs, stemmed, quartered
  • 1/2 cup Marsala
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt plus more
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour plus more
  • 1 1/2 cups bread flour
  • 8 ounces fresh goat cheese
  • 2 cups arugula
  • 1 pear, cored, thinly sliced

Fig and Goat Cheese Pizza Preparation

Heat 1/2 Tbsp. oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add shallot; stir until soft, about 5 minutes. Add figs, Marsala, and rosemary. Increase heat. Bring to a boil. Add 1 cup water. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer, stirring often and adding water by tablespoonfuls if too thick, until figs are soft and jam measures 1 1/4 cups, about 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Pulse 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, bread flour, 1 1/2 Tbsp. oil, 1 tsp. salt, and 1 cup water in a food processor until dough forms. Divide into 4 pieces. Wrap each in plastic and let rest until soft, 2–3 hours.

Preheat oven to 450°. Roll out each dough piece on a floured surface to a very thin 10″ round. Cover with a kitchen towel.

Place 1 dough round on each of 2 baking sheets. Bake for 3–4 minutes to partially cook. Repeat with remaining dough.

Spread 3–4 Tbsp. fig jam over each crust; scatter 2 oz. goat cheese over each. Bake in batches until crust is crisp, 4–5 minutes.

Toss arugula, pear, and remaining 1 tsp. oil in a large bowl; season with salt and pepper. Top pizzas with salad.
