  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme chopped, or 1 teaspoon dried
  • 1 12" Italian bread shell pizza crust
  • 2/3 cup crumbled mild goat cheese


  • 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.)
