Fig And Goat Cheese Pizza

Fig and Goat Cheese Pizza is not your average tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese pizza. This delectable pizza has contrasting tastes that combine exquisitely. The sweet taste of figs with the poignant taste of goat cheese really blends well with their clashing tastes. Even picky eaters will love this flatbread type of pizza.

Just 4 easy to find ingredients are needed to make this delectable meal; crescent rolls (I prefer Pillsbury Crescent Rolls), fig jam, goat cheese, and rosemary.

Flatbread Pizza

While I wouldn’t completely say that this fig and goat cheese pizza is technically a flatbread pizza, it is much thinner and breadier (is that even a word?) than regular pizzas. Therefore, I’m going on a limb and calling it a flatbread pizza for comparison. Hear me out.

Flatbread pizzas have been trendy for some time now. There are a variety of funky pizza concoctions that are added to flatbread that create fancier pizzas. Some flatbread pizzas have salads on them, others have full blown meals on top of them (short rib flatbread pizzas – yum!) and the list goes on and on.

Flatbread pizzas are much more than just mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, or mushrooms. Rather, they are complex with many toppings and flavors that combine opposing tastes that blend together, ironically, well.

This fig and goat cheese pizza is similar to a flatbread pizza with the sweet taste of figs, but with the contrasting flavors of goat cheese and rosemary. A few years ago, I would have said, hell no to this pizza! I love my red sauce pizzas with mozzarella cheese and pizza dough after all. However, after being exposed to these yummy flatbread recipes, they have since grown on me. Therefore, if you are new to these types of pizzas, you need to try these flavors together. Trust me, they grow on you. And as they grown on you, they become addictive and you find yourself craving these types of foods!

Ingredients Needed

This fig and goat cheese pizza is an elegant pizza that is embarrassingly easy to make. You know me with my simple ingredient list and easy to make instructions.

Again, this recipe consists of just 4 ingredients. Therefore, making this delicious pizza is super easy to cook. Here is the simple recipe – share it with whomever you wish:

  • Preheat oven to 375 F.

  • Spread the fig jam over the dough, leaving 1/2″ around the perimeter of the dough.
  • Crumble goat cheese and place evenly on the fig jam.
  • Sprinkle rosemary over the entire pizza.

It’s pretty filling so it is a great choice for dessert – it could possibly keep you from overeating this yummy dessert. Although, I must warn you, this pizza is very addictive. You have been warned. I cannot be to blame if you overeat this from this point on!
