Quick look at Fig and Prosciutto Pizza recipe

  1. Preheat the oven and prepare the caramelized onions and fig pizza toppings.
  2. Stretch pizza dough and parbake dough with garlic sauce on it for 7 minutes at 450 degrees F.
  3. Add fig and caramelized onion toppings to the parbaked pizza and finish baking for 10-12 minutes until crisp on the bottom.
  4. Remove the fig pizza from the oven and top with prosciutto and balsamic glaze. Enjoy!

Detailed recipe steps for dried fig and prosciutto flatbread pizza

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F, with a baking stone inside of it, or to the temperature recommended by your pizza stone. Alternatively, add a baking sheet pan to the oven to make a more organic shape pizza or rectangle pizza.
  2. Caramelize onions for fig prosciutto pizza. To a medium or large skillet on the stove, add onions, garlic, and olive oil. Heat on medium-high for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally (about every 1-2 minutes). Either turn off heat, or keep caramelizing them, on medium-low for about 5 minutes more, stirring occasionally, until they reach your desired level of caramelization. Remove from heat once done cooking.
  3. Set aside part of the caramelized onions for topping the pizza. Transfer ¾ of the cooked onions to a bowl and set aside. Leave the other ¼ onions in the pan with remaining oil.
  4. Make garlic butter sauce. Add butter to the skillet that still has the remaining onions (and garlic, obviously!). Melt on low / medium then turn off heat and remove pan from the hot burner to cool.
  5. Stretch dough. See Sip Bite Go pizza dough stretching guide for tips if youre new to making pizza at home with store bought dough. I recommend letting the dough come to room temperature and I use a little flour to help stretch the dough.
  6. Prep the pizza base. Add a little olive oil (brush it all over the surface) to the preheated pizza stone or baking sheet. (If using a baking sheet, line it with parchment paper first.) Add pizza dough on top. (dont try to force a shape to help prevent holes in the dough).
  7. Add the white sauce. Then get the garlic butter pizza sauce from the stove and brush the melted butter on the perimeter of the pizza crust. This will help it turn golden brown. Drizzle every last drop of the rest of the garlic butter sauce with caramelized onions (the part youve been saving in the pan) to the pizza base. Brush all over to cover the pizza dough.
  8. Baking part 1 (just the base). Bake fig prosciutto pizza in the oven for 7 minutes in the oven to parbake the pizza dough with the buttery garlic sauce. Remove from the oven and keep the oven on (with the door closed).
  9. Optional flavor booster step. To the parbaked pizza, add dollops of pesto and spread them out to form thin layers. (Personally, I dont feel you have to completely cover the base. I think its more exciting to bite into pesto here and there as youre eating the pizza.) Add a sprinkle of red pepper flakes, if desired.
  10. Add toppings. Add cheeses, the rest of the sauteed onions from the beginning step, then little pinches of prosciutto, and a sprinkle of figs. Get artistic with it!
  11. Baking part 2. Bake pizza with toppings until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown. This will take anywhere from 7 to 10 to 12 minutes depending on your oven and the pizza stone or sheet pan youre using to cook pizza.
  12. Remove fig and prosciutto pizza from the oven. Add a drizzle of balsamic glaze and fresh basil. Slice and serve when cool enough to enjoy.

To store leftover dried fig and prosciutto flatbread pizza, it is important to properly handle and store it to ensure it stays fresh and safe to eat. Here are some tips on how to store leftover Dried Fig and Prosciutto Flatbread Pizza:

Let it Cool: Allow the pizza to cool down to room temperature before storing it. This helps prevent the growth of bacteria and keeps the crust from becoming soggy.

Wrap it Up: Wrap the leftover pizza in plastic wrap or aluminum foil. This helps to keep the pizza from drying out and prevents it from absorbing any odors or flavors from other foods in the refrigerator.

Use an Airtight Container: If you have a large amount of leftover pizza, its best to store it in an airtight container. This helps to prevent air from getting in and keeps the pizza fresh for a longer period of time.

Store in the Refrigerator: Store the wrapped or containerized pizza in the refrigerator for up to three days. After that time, its best to discard it.

Reheat Properly: When reheating the leftover Dried Fig and Prosciutto Flatbread Pizza, use an oven, toaster oven, or air fryer instead of a microwave. This helps to keep the crust crispy and the toppings fresh.
