fig + goat cheese

Posted on | 11 February 2010 | 2 Comments

in love with this pizza from the new basics cookbook. it's so simple, and of course, delicious. i'll pretty much devour anything with goat cheese, and then add a little fig to the mix? brilliant.

...via wellsphere, la petite chinoise & sam cooks

12 fresh figs, sliced
½ cup soft goat cheese
½ cup fresh shaved parmesan reggiano
¼ cup red onion, very thinly sliced
¼ cup fresh chives
2 cups organic mache
2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
sea salt and fresh ground pepper

Once you’ve made your dough, divide it and pull it out to desired size. With your hands, rub a little bit of oil on one side, and put the oiled side down on the grill. Close the lid and grill for about 3 minutes.
Flip the dough over and push the dough down with a spatula to create a thinner flatbread (if you desire… I desired). Evenly distribute the sliced figs, goat cheese, parmesan, chives and sliced red onion across the dough. Give it all a generous grind of pepper and sprinkle of salt. Close the lid and grill for another 6 to 8 minutes untill all toppings are melted and there are grill marks on the bottom of the dough.
In the meantime, toss the mache lettuce with the balsamic vinegar, olive oil and sprinkle of salt and pepper.
Remove the flatbreads and top with a hefty handful of the dressed mache. Chomp away while its hot!
