Caramelized Shallots

  • Heat butter in large saucepan and cook shallots until caramelized. Stir in molasses and vinegar; season to taste with salt and pepper. Continue to cook and stir until all liquid has been absorbed. Set aside to cool.

  • Pizza

  • Preheat pizza stone or heavy baking pan in 500°F oven for 30 minutes or more. Meanwhile, spread figs on sheet pan or tray; drizzle with olive oil and honey, then season with salt and black pepper. Set aside.

    Then, on 12×12 inch piece of parchment paper with lightly floured rolling pin, roll pizza dough to about ¼ inch thick. Brush generously with olive oil and spread Caramelized Shallots over all. Arrange sliced figs about ½ inch apart on top of shallots and season lightly with salt and black pepper. Sprinkle goat cheese evenly over all. Transfer pizza to preheated stone and bake, 10-15 minutes at 500°F or until cheese and edge of crust are lightly browned. Remove from oven and transfer to cutting board; let stand and cool slightly. Then, cut into wedges, and garnish with sliced prosciutto, parmesan and arugula.
