Krayl’s Grilled Fig, Arugula and Prosciutto Pizza {#SundaySupper}

National Pizza Month… did you know that was a thing? It’s it Pizza Day every day? Or at least on Friday’s and every other Sunday – right? Well since October is actually National Pizza Month it gives me an excuse to mix it up a bit and make one of my all-time favorite recipes – Grilled Fig, Arugula and Prosciutto Pizza. Does it get any better?

OK – I have to admit this is actually a spin on what is one of my favorite pizzas. In fact, I had my heart set on fresh figs and was just one week short of being able to find fresh figs in my local stores. I saw dried figs and even tried a version using them, but is just wasn’t the same. So instead to get the same flavor, I opted for a fig butter – sounds amazing doesn’t it, however there is no real butter in it, just pure figs – just as tasty and locally sourced, it’s is a great substitute during those months you are craving figs but can’t find them fresh.

This version skips the traditional mozzarella and replaces it with goat cheese, and then I topped it with the fig butter before grilling, giving the pizza a slight tang which plays well off the sweet and savory of the other ingredients – arugula, prosciutto, grilled pears, honey and fig balsamic.

Before we even get to the recipe you should probably start heating up your grill. Grilled pizzas I have learned require an extremely high heat in order to cook properly, so start the grill, open some wine and take a few minutes to relax before the cooking begins.

Speaking of wine… the Mr. + I have now come to terms about the fact that I pretty much only drink white wine {Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc} and he prefers a spicy red {Burgundy or Merlot}, so I now LOVE making whatever I feel like making and sipping on whatever I feel like enjoying without the pressure of “what wine pairs with this dish”! Sure, I still consider which style wine from each team we will be serving but it has completely set me free of the pressure of “only white wine with fish or chicken and only red with pork or beef”. Instead I consider the herbs, the cooking style and heartiness of the flavor combinations over the traditional rules when selecting my wines.
