Fig, Caramelized Onion & Gorgonzola Cheese Flatbread

We arrived home from a short trip to the Pacific Northwest for the plentiful harvest from our fig tree. Our tree abundantly provides figs in mid July and I have to be quick harvesting them before the birds pick at them. Last night I had a dinner party and one of the appetizers I made was this flatbread.

Figs

Fig, Caramelized Onion & Gorgonzola Cheese Flatbread

  • 20 ripe figs sliced
  • 1 ball of prepared pizza dough
  • 1/3 sweet onion sliced and caramelized
  • 1/2 cup gorgonzola cheese
  • one sprig of fresh thyme
  • 1/4 cup olive
  • Roll out dough in a rectangular shape. Spread olive oil on  a baking sheet and transfer the dough to it. Spread olive oil on the dough. Top with figs, onion, cheese and thyme. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes until golden brown on the edges. Serve warm.
