Balsamic Drizzled Fig & Feta Pizza

Balsamic Drizzled Fig & Feta Pizza

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

Ingredients

Pizza Dough

Toppings

  1. Olive Oil – 2 Tbs.

  5. Garlic – 2 tsp.
  6. Feta – 2/3 c.
  7. Balsamic Vinegar – drizzle (garnish)

Directions

  1. Once your dough is ready, preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Coat dough in olive oil and work into pan with fingers to desired thickness.
  3.  Once oven reaches temperature, cook pizza dough for 10 minutes without topping it.
  4. While dough cooks, heat olive oil over medium heat and sauté onions until translucent.
  5. In a bowl, add sautéed onions and items 3 thru 6. Mix well.

  1. I love making pizza! But I usually stick with the typical margherita pizza toppings of mozzarella, basil and tomato sauce. This is giving me serious inspiration to be a little more adventurous! i also love the combination of fig and feta cheese. 🙂

     
  2. This sounds amazing. I am printing the recipe now.

     
  3. Our current favorite is artichoke hearts and black olives when we make pizza. This sounds great, though. I think we’ll give it a try!

     
  4. I’ve pinned this – gotta try it sometime. Looks yummy!

     
  5. This sounds amazing! I pinned for later!

  8. this looks really good! I’m wanting to try it soon

     
  9. This looks delicious! We also love making pizzas. We use a lot of freshly chopped mushrooms and I let my 3yo and 2yo boys practice cutting with their little plastic knives. They keep stealing the mushroom and eating it before the pizza goes in the oven but hey, who am I to argue with them wanting to eat more veg?! Thin and crispy crusts for us all the way, although 7 month old baby girl likes them thicker and just sucks all the topping off and spits the crust out lol

     
  10. This looks delish! I never would have thought to combine feta cheese and figs. Yum – pinning!

  11. This looks incredible. I saw that Trader Joe sells pizza dough. Maybe I will buy that and then try it with your toppings. I do not know if I am brave enough to make my own dough.
