½ cup balsamic vinegar
¼ cup kalamata olives

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 clove garlic
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 x black pepper
to taste
1 each pizza shell
12-inch, homemade or store-bought
8 each figs
fresh, top stems removed, halved
1 cup goat (chevre) cheese


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. If you have a pizza stone, put the stone in the middle of the rack before preheating the oven.

In a small saucepan, add the balsamic vinegar, and bring to a boil over high heat.

Lower the temperature to medium-low or low, and cook until vinegar has been thickened, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.

Meanwhile In a food processor, add olives, olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, zest and black pepper.

Process until almost smooth.

Spread tapenade over pizza crust, arrange halved figs over tapenade.

Top with goat cheese.

Bake in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the crust is golden-brown, and cheese starts to brown in spots.

Remove from the oven, and let cool for a few minutes.

Cut with a pizza cutter and serve warm with balsamic reduction drizzled on top.

Made this pizza for our friends last weekend. It was also our first time to cook figs.

I enjoyed this pizza very much, loved the combination of figs, tapenade, and goat cheese. Sweet, salty and creamy, it was so tasty.

We also made our pizza dough that was more like a foccacia, which went deliciously well with the toppings. Definitely not your traditional pizza, but it tasted amazing.
