California Fig and Goat Cheese Pizza

Makes 8 servings


1 tablespoon each butter and olive oil 

3 large onions (1 1/2 lbs.), thinly sliced 

1 tablespoon balsamic or red wine vinegar 

1/2 teaspoon salt 

1/4 teaspoon pepper 

1 cup thinly sliced Blue Ribbon Orchard Choice or Sun-Maid California Figs, stems trimmed 

1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried 

1 12-inch Italian bread shell pizza crust 

2/3 cup (3 1/2 oz.) crumbled mild goat cheese  


  1. Heat oven to 450°. In large deep skillet or Dutch oven, melt butter in oil over medium heat. Stir in onions, vinegar, salt and pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and golden brown, 25-30 minutes. Stir in figs and thyme; remove from heat. (Onion-fig mixture can be made ahead and refrigerated.) Spread onion-fig mixture evenly over pizza crust and top with cheese. Bake until crust is crisp and cheese has softened, 8-10 minutes.
