Honey Fig Pizza with Feta Cheese and Walnuts – a sweet spin on pizza night!
Friday night pizza night!
Really It could be any day that you’re reading this, so you don’t have to wait til Friday.
Pizza night happens to be pretty popular in my house (maybe yours too?) so sometimes I like to get a little creative with toppings.
So. many. pizzas.
Actually, the first time I ever remember eating a fig was on a honey and fig pizza. Maybe it was more of a flatbread? Pretty sure it was from a recipe booklet my grandma had from her church with family favorite recipes.
That’s actually where I fell in love with the idea of honey on a pizza in the first place.
So when I saw figs were out again on my last trip to the grocery store, I remembered that pizza night and decided I had to make it again!
Honestly I don’t remember what the other toppings were in that original recipe, so I turned to my new favorite resource again: the Vegetarian Flavor Bible.
Figs isn’t exactly a normal topping option when you order in, so I needed some guidance.
You guessed it – feta + walnuts were high up on the list of things that go with figs.
If you’re not a fan of the idea of marinara sauce with this topping combo, you can use a little bit of olive oil instead.
I ended up using sauce, just a little less than I do on a normal pizza.
The pictures are from the time I opted for Trader Joe’s frozen pizza crusts over homemade, but it tastes even better with a thick homemade base!
Tell me – do you like figs? Have you ever tried it on pizza?
- Preheat oven to 425°F.
- Place pizza dough/crust on cast iron skillet or greased cookie sheet. Top with sauce, mozzarella cheese, fig slices, feta, and walnut pieces. Drizzle honey on top.
- Bake at 425°F for 12-15 minutes or until crust is lightly browned. PRO TIP: Turn on high broil for the last couple minutes of baking time to evenly melt and brown the toppings.
