Fresh fig, balsamic onion & blue cheese pizza

Makes 1 large pizza (serves 2)
1 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for brushing
1 small onion, sliced
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 large prepared pizza base
5 fresh figs, halved
120g blue cheese, crumbled
1 tsp fresh rosemary leaves, chopped
50g mozzarella, grated
  • Heat the oil in a pan over a low heat. Cook the onion with the balsamic vinegar for 25-30 minutes or until soft and caramel-coloured, stirring regularly. If the onions start to stick on the bottom of the pan, add a splash of water. Set aside to cool completely.
  • Preheat the oven to 230˚C/210˚C fan/gas mark 8.
  • Place the pizza base on a pizza stone or large baking tray. Brush the top with olive oil.
  • Spread the cooled balsamic onions over the pizza base. Arrange the figs cut side-up around the pizza and crumble over the blue cheese. Scatter over the Mozzarella and rosemary and season with black pepper.
  • Place in oven and bake for 15 minutes or until golden and bubbling.

If you’re not a fan of blue cheese, any cheese will work, but we especially recommend salty cheeses. If you’re not cooking for vegetarians, adding some sliced prosciutto works very well.
