Fig, Bacon, & Blue Cheese Pizza

Bacon and blue gets a new look with the addition of figs atop of a pizza! Snag up the fresh figs quick while they are still in season.

A couple weeks ago, before my friend Haley moved away to Richmond, VA, she cooked Bob and me a 5 course meal complete with 2 different cocktails. It was strange and yet exciting to have a meal served to me at home without me lifting a finger! One of the courses involved goat cheese-gorgonzola and bacon stuffed figs. Yes they were freaking amazing, just like the rest of the meal. And I craved them so much later that I had to recreate it but on a larger scale – pizza!

While this pizza in no way can fill the void of the absence left by my friend (although we do try our best to fill it with text messages), it did fill my belly with happiness for the time being. This pizza has a whole wheat thin crust, topped with a drizzle of olive oil, gorgonzola and goat cheese, fig, and bacon. Fun fact about figs, most of the figs you eat contain at least one dead wasp. And they are technically inverted flowers. Google it!

Of course you turned the figs into a pizza – that’s who you are. I did look up figs, and you are right, except that by the time we eat them, those inverted flowers have fruits inside. I really like the sound of this pizza, but am not sure I’ll get to make it, since I would be subjecting my husband to flavors (like bacon) that he’s not fond of. Actually, he’ll try just about anything once and if he doesn’t like it, I’d have a couple of lunches. And applewood-smoked bacon is a big help, at least in my opinion. So we’ll see if I get it made.

Haha yay fig pizzas! And I think your husband is the first man I’ve heard of that doesn’t like bacon (other than vegetarians). Hope you can sway him with the applewood-smoked bacon. Then again if he doesn’t then it’s all for you ;-)
