Fig, peach, & carmelized onion pizza

Hey nerds, guess who’s got two thumbs, speaks limited French, and hasn’t overeaten once today? This moi. We’re about to change that. (thanks, Liz Lemon!)

If shaved asparagus pizza was my spring/early summer pizza, then this recipe is my late summer/early fall pizza: Fig, peach, and caramelized onion. This pizza would make a great appetizer or flat bread if you are entertaining and can get your hands on some fresh figs and the last late summer peaches (I bet pears would work too!).

I just can’t seem to get enough figs, so fall must officially be here. Someone bring me some butternut squash soup and a pumpkin spice latte, stat! Now, where is my cuddly sweater and tall Frye boots? Oh yeah, I don’t own any. Guess I’ll just have to double up on pumpkin spice lattes to stay excited about fall.

Fig, peach, and caramelized onion pizza, makes one pizza (serves about 2, depending on how thick your crust is!)
3-4 fresh figs
1 small peach
1/2 small red onion
1 cup goat cheese crumbles (other cheeses will work well – ricotta would be great!)
2 T fresh thyme
pizza crust or pizza dough (I usually use trader joe’s dough, but this was on sale at Whole Foods, so I rolled with it)

2 T olive oil
1-2 T honey (optional)

Let’s do this:
Prep: Preheat oven according to your pizza crust instructions (400 degrees for me). Cut up your onion into strips. Get 1 T of your olive oil heating in a pan and add the onions to carmelize them. While your onions are cooking, chop up your thyme. Slice the peach and figs into thin slices and set aside.

Roll out your dough and brush on the remaining 1 T olive oil all the way to the crust.

Add the caramelized onions, cheese, fig and peach slices, and sprinkle the thyme over the top.

Cook according to your pizza dough directions. It took my pizza about 12 minutes to cook. Then I turned the oven on broil and carmelized the peaches and figs for about a minute.

Remove from the oven and drizzle with a little honey. Enjoy with the last little bit of summer sunshine (sadness).

    That looks so good. I am in love with figs. We’ll be trying both of these soon. And the Liz Lemon reference, too funny.
