Pizza: figs, fig jam, arugula, prosciutto, and goat cheese over cauliflower crust (YUMMINESS!!)

My daughter pulled my frozen cauliflower pizza out of the freezer today and asked me if she could make it. I continued to suggest she use the fig spread, arugula, prosciutto and goat cheese we had in the fridge. I love that she is venturing into trying new things on her own. She said, “Mom, shouldn’t I cook the pizza first before I put the spread on – this way it won’t be too soggy.” Girl, was I thrilled!! As I continued to smell the aromas coming from the kitchen, I smiled. I was so proud of her – she made a master piece. She cooked the crust just right – it wasn’t soggy at all! She cooked the prosciutto on the stove – lightly cooked to bring out the salty flavor (not crispy). Then spread the fig jam over the crust, dropped a mound of arugula, topped it off with the prosciutto, and dollops of goat cheese, which melted over the hot crust. Once this was done, a drizzle of a balsamic fig vinegar – superb! The arugula slightly wilted just in time to take a bite!

The picture was taken about a month ago – this was the pizza I made with figs I roasted. I used the reserve to make the fig jam (which is what she used today).
