Fig and Gorgonzola Pizza with Balsamic Caramelized Onions and Prosciutto

Making pizza at home allows you to be creative with your ingredients experimenting with different types of dough, sauces, and toppings to create a pizza that suits your taste precisely. When you make pizza yourself, you can control the quality of those ingredients and  make them as healthy or indulgent as you like. Pizza making at home can be a fun and educational activity for the whole family, providing an opportunity for children or non-cooks to get hands-on experience with food preparation and cooking.

Of course, there's something about a pizza coming right out of your oven that makes it exceptionally delicious. One thing that I find satisfying is the ability to use local ingredients or items from our own garden. We're highlighting figs from a farm down the road in today's recipe and topped the pizza with arugula from our kitchen garden. Perhaps you have some fruit, cheese, or other comestible from a nearby purveyor who will inspire you equally. 

We also used the Balsamic Caramelized Onion recipe from last May as one of the ingredients, so if you enjoyed that recipe in some of your sandwiches over the summer, try it here, too!

By the way, I'm curious. Do you use a pizza stone in your oven, or have you jumped on the Ooni pizza oven bandwagon or perhaps even have a full pizza oven in your backyard? Let us know your thoughts about ingredients and methods in the comments!
