I made this recipe last night and it was really easy and really good.  I don’t like recipes that require a lot of prep or a lot of ingredients so this fit the bill. Also, I don’t like to measure so I just eyeball stuff.  Sorry there are no exact measurements.

Fig & Feta Pizza

What You Need:

Fig Preserves (I got mine at T.J. Maxx!, but Marshall’s has stuff like this too for cheap. I’m sure any gourmet shop has it as well.)

Feta Cheese (I use Athen’s low fat but any kind works)

Pizza dough (whole wheat or regular)


Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees

Use a little flour and flatten the dough on a pizza stone. I prefer to make the dough pretty thin with minimal crust so its more like a flat bread.

Mix a little olive oil and garlic together and lightly coat the top of the dough.

Spread the fig preserves over the dough leaving as much or as little crust as you would like.  A thin layer is best because it’s very flavorful

Pop it into the pre-heated oven for about 10 -12 minutes

After 10 minutes sprinkle the feta over the entire pizza (not too much because you want the fig and feta to compliment each other not compete) and then bake for another 3 -5 minutes or until the crust looks crispy and the cheese is a little melty.

Take out of the oven and let cool for a few minutes before cutting.

And that’s it! I enjoy feta but it’s also good with goat cheese or Gorgonzola.  My friend makes this on the grill which is really good too.

This makes a nice dinner if you pair it with a salad or it’s perfect for a little appetizer at a party.

If you try it let me know how you like it.
