I was bored last night and when I’m bored, I like to cook. I decided to try making this recipe I found for a pizza with figs.. never thought I would be eating figs on a pizza. This recipe is really simple. I just bought the pizza dough at Trader Joe’s (they have everything!). You lay out the dough and just place the sliced figs on top along with thyme, salt & pepper, and olive oil. Then before you serve it, drizzle some honey on top and you’re good to go! It’s a very interesting combo and I liked the juiciness from the figs. I’m going to add more figs next time. Oh and I also left some for my roommates to try but then they all fell on the ground… oops. So there will definitely be a next time :)
