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).
