The ultimate party pizza! This sophisticated fig and prosciutto pizza is topped with caramelized onions, fresh arugula, goat cheese, and a balsamic glaze. It's easy and delicious.
Servings: 10 slices
- 1 batch your favourite gluten-free pizza crust this recipe makes enough for 1 9x13" pizza
- ½ cup fig jam
- 1 cup caramelized onions, from a 3lb bag of yellow onions
- 1 340g ball of mozzarella cheese, shredded use lactose-free if required
- 100 g prosciutto
- 2 cups arugula
- ¼ cup goat cheese
- balsamic glaze for drizzling
You may prepare the caramelized onions up to several days ahead of time. Slice or dice an entire 3lb bag of yellow or cooking onions. Place a large metal skillet on medium heat with 2 tablespoon of avocado oil. Add the onions along with a pinch of salt and 1-2 teaspoon of brown sugar. Let cook on medium-low for about 30 minutes to 1 hour, stirring every 2-5 minutes. Add 1-2 teaspoon of balsamic vinegar halfway through for depth of flavour. Remove from heat when nice and golden. Keep in the fridge for up to 4 days, or if using immediately, allow to come to room temperature.
If you're making a pizza dough from scratch that needs to proof for over an hour, prepare that first according to recipe or package instructions.
Making the Pizza
Preheat your oven according to the pizza crust instructions. Par-bake if required. Spread the fig jam as thin as you can all over the pizza crust, leaving room for a 1-2cm crust. Top with the caramelized onions covering just about the whole pizza. Add sliced or shredded mozzarella. Bake according to pizza crust instructions for it to be fully cooked with golden cheese and crust.
Once the pizza is baked, it is easiest to slice prior to adding the remaining toppings. Cut into 10 slices, or as many as you wish. Top each slice with prosciutto, arugula, and a sprinkle of goat cheese. Drizzle with balsamic glaze if you wish. Enjoy immediately!
Leftover pizza can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat in a 375ºF oven or air fryer for 2-5 minutes. Top with fresh arugula, goat cheese, and balsamic glaze if you wish. Prepared pizza will not freeze and thaw well. Enjoy!
