Caramelized Onion & Fig Pizza Recipe

Publisher Photo
This is a sensational variation on traditional pizza. It is creamy, sweet and a little salty. The buttery crunch of the pine nuts make a wonderful taste accent. I like to serve it with mixed baby greens salad and a vinaigrette.—Connie Balbach, Bemidji, Minnesota

  2. Unroll crust into a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan; flatten dough and build up edges slightly. Bake at 425° for 7-10 minutes or until golden brown.
