Prosciutto & Fig Flatbread Pizza

I love figs so much! With their intense sweet and honey flavor, fresh figs can be perfectly paired with something sharp and salty. That makes prosciutto and figs a perfect marriage of flavors.  Sadly, living in the northeast part of the country, its very hard to get a hold of fresh figs.  They don't travel easily because of their tendency to split and rot if not handled delicately.  If you are able to get your hands of some - BUY THEM!  This recipe has fig preserves but if you want to substitute real ones for the preserves do not hesitate. Just do it!



  • Pre- made pizza crust or flatbread.  I used Brooklyn Bred Pizza crust for this recipe
  • 10 oz fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into small rounds
  • 2 tbsp fig preserve or 5-6 figs thinly sliced
  • 10-12 slices of prosciutto
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Spread the olive oil all over the pizza crust so that a thin layer covers the entirety of the pizza
  3. Place the mozzarella rounds evenly over the pizza.  Remember that the mozzarella will spread once its heated!
  4. Use a spoon to dollop the fig preserves (or if using fresh figs: lay the slices down) in between the rounds of cheese.  
  5. Sprinkle with salt and pepper
  6. Place the pizza on a pizza stone in the oven and bake for 5-8 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
  7. Once the pizza is cooked, remove and top with slices of prosciutto and drizzle with balsamic vinegar!
