Fig, Prosciutto and Arugula Pizza

September 14, 2011 § 1 Comment

Just those first few words are enough to make my mouth water. I was watching The Pioneer Woman on Food Network the other day and she made a Fig and Prosciutto flat bread pizza that I haven’t been able to get it out of my head. This recipe is really easy to make (thanks to store bought pizza crusts) and has just a few key ingredients – which is great after a long day at work or when you need a quick appetizer for guests.

I put my own spin on this pizza and the second I took a bite, I knew I had to share the recipe. Enjoy!

4 small store-bought pizza crusts
8 slices prosciutto
2 cups baby arugula
1/4 cup toasted almonds, chopped
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup Monterey Jack cheese
Fig preserves

Heat oven according to pizza crust package. Spread a thin layer of fig preserves on pizza crusts. (These preserves are strong, so a little goes a long way.) Top with toasted almonds, mozzarella and Monterey Jack cheese and place in preheated oven until crust is warmed through and cheese is melted.

Cut the pizzas (this makes it easier to serve and eat.) Top each slice with half a slice of prosciutto and 1/4 cup baby arugula. Shred a little fresh Parmesan cheese (optional) and serve.

p.s. In case you’re looking for an update on my 30 Days of Running, I was swamped with work yesterday and didn’t have a chance to post my run here.
