I love love love this pizza!  It has everything to offer, crunchy crust, chewy cheese, salty meat, sweet fig with a touch of tang.  The balsamic is really the pièce de résistance!  I got a few bottles last time they had it at Aldi but it can just as easily be made.  Here is how to make a balsamic glaze.

The pizza makes a great appetizer for a large crowd or dinner with a simple salad.  Delicious and versatile, you can throw it together in a pinch of take your time to and make a process of preparing.  I prefer to make my own crust, but I saw a pre-baked store brand whole-wheat crust that I wanted to try.  Mix the topping ups too, use fresh or dried figs depending on what is available and in season.  Swap the prosciutto for any salty meat like bacon or pancetta.  The cheese can be swapped just as easily, goat cheese is the bomb on this but really just about any cheese will work.  Bake it, grill it, broil it, whatever floats your boat.

Mmmm, I could eat this everyday.  How soon can I make this again — Saturday night it is!

    Yep, perfect combination of flavors, isn’t it?! The next time I make mine, I will add the balsamic glaze – I too could have this a couple nights a week, no problem!
