Figs and cheese? Why yes its delizioso! This is recipe is based on one of my favorite summer time fruits combined with one of my favorite year-round pastimes....baking and eating pizza ; )
1 pizza dough
4-6 ounces goat cheese
1 large onion sliced and sauteed in olive oil until caramelized
olive oil
sea salt
about a dozen fresh figs
1 rosemary sprig
Preheat stone in oven on bottom or depending one oven on the next to bottom rack at 550.
Place parchment on a sheet pan or flat pizza pan.
Roll out dough on to parchment covered pan as large and thin as possible.
Drizzle olive oil all over, just a little : )
Add half of the rosemary sprig leaves chopped fine, just a little!
When adding toppings leave a large edge as we will fold it over slightly.
Add the goat cheese in chunks evenly all over.
Add the onions.
Cut the figs in half and add the figs  open side up.
Grind a little seas salt all over.
Fold the edges over slightly covering the toppings.
Bake7 minutes or until set enough to remove parchment , remove parchment.
Continue baking until starting to golden brown on cheese about 5-8 minutes more.
Add the other half of the sprig on top for looks and to release the oils and aroma!
