Fig and Goat Cheese Pizza

1 package dry yeast
1 c. warm water
2.5 c. white flour
1 tsp. salt

In large bowl combine dry yeast and warm water, allow to stand for 10 mins, then add salt and flour, knead for 5 mins and allow dough to rise in warm place, covered with cloth, for 30 mins. Punch dough and knead another minute or two, then roll out on floured surface to cover pizza pan. Place dough on pizza pan and brush olive oil over dough. Add toppings listed below.

2 oz goat cheese
1 red onion, sliced
6 dried figs
2 Tb. butter
1 Tb. olive oil
1 c. mozzarella cheese, shredded

Heat 1 c. water in a bowl, add figs and soak for 15 mins, then remove figs and slice into quarters.
In saucepan, heat butter over med heat, add red onion and stir occasionally until onion is throughly cooked and beginning to brown (carmelize). Remove from heat.

Sprinkle toppings over pizza crust (onion, crumble goat cheese, figs, mozzarella). I added some oregano and thyme to the toppings before I finished with mozzarella.

Rating: 3 stars

The combination of toppings on the pizza was delicious. I love the sweet figs and savory onion together. This pizza really has no sauce, which is why it is only 3 stars. Next time I would make a pesto sauce or an olive oil/garlic sauce.
