Roasted Fig + Proscuitto Flatbreads

Serves 8, appetizer portions

Ingredients

•   8 fresh figs, tough stem removed and halved

•   1 tablespoon honey

•   2 cups + 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

•   1 medium red onion, halved and thinly sliced

•   2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

•   1 store-bought pizza dough

•   4 ounces fresh goat cheese (Chevre)

•   1 cup arugula

•   6 slices prosciutto

Directions

1.     Preheat oven to 425°F

2.     Toss the figs in a baking dish or sheet tray with 1 tablespoon honey and 1 tablespoon balsamic. Roast for about 15-20 minutes until softened. Cool.

3.     Heat the remaining 2 cups balsamic vinegar in a small saucepan over medium-high heat until it comes to gentle boil. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer until the balsamic is reduced to 3/4 cup, and has the consistency of maple syrup, about 30 minutes. Cool to room temperature.

4.     Heat 2 teaspoons of the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally until the onion is golden, about 10 minutes.

5.     Roll out the pizza dough and place on a large sheet tray. Bake at 425°F for about 10-15 minutes until golden brown. Transfer flatbread to a large platter and brush with remaining 1 teaspoon olive oil and a sprinkle of salt. Top with the caramelized onions, figs, goat cheese, arugula and prosciutto Drizzle with the balsamic reduction and cut into 16 pieces.

    I can’t wait to try this!!! I know I thank you often for your book and all it has done for me, but I realized something today while I was cooking veggie fajitas for lunch… You taught me to cook for MYSELF, I am a Mom so I rarely put myself first, I use to heat up some frozen crap, now I make myself lunch everyday. It is nice to put myself first even if its only for 20 minutes!

    Question – do you use 3/4 cup of sugar in full or 1+1/4 cup? Just trying to get it right – and you have sugar listed in two places :o)
