Pizza night is done on a weekly basis at our house. In addition to the traditional margarita toppings, we found that this balsamic drizzled fig feta pizza adds a nice twist to the line up. In fact, when our toddler’s grandmother asked him what the Easter bunny was going to bring him, he looked at his dad and said, “PeaPah?” I’m sure his pediatrician would be proud. I’m making pizza from scratch these days it makes me feel good to know what’s going into that pie and I’m hoping to turn it into a family tradition that our tiny one will enjoy taking part in.
I’ll be honest, there are days we’ll buy the pizza dough that you can roll out from Trader Joe’s or Safeway, but more often than not, I’ll use the dough recipe from Roberta’s, a Brooklyn eatery.
Balsamic Drizzled Fig Feta Pizza
- Olive Oil – 2 Tbs.
- Red Onion – 1/2, sliced
- Figs, frozen or fresh – 3/4 c. quartered (if frozen, thaw)
- Baby Spinach Leaves – 1 c.
- Garlic – 2 tsp.
- Feta – 2/3 c.
- Balsamic Vinegar – drizzle (garnish)
- Ground Black Pepper – garnish
- Once your dough is ready, preheat oven to 400ºF.
- Coat dough in olive oil and work into pan with fingers to desired thickness.
- Once oven reaches temperature, cook pizza dough for 10 minutes without topping it.
- While dough cooks, heat olive oil over medium heat and sauté onions until translucent.
- In a bowl, add sautéed onions and items 3 thru 6. Mix well.
- Spread mixture over partially baked pizza crust and cook for 15 to 20 minutes. The feta should be lightly browned in some spots.
- Remove from oven and drizzle balsamic vinegar over entire pizza. Add desired amount of black pepper & enjoy!
