1 red onion, thinly sliced

2 tablespoons olive oil

salt, as needed

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

pepper, as needed

1 teaspoon honey

16 ounces of pizza dough, divided into two balls ( or divided into 4)

1 garlic clove- smashed

1 cup grated mozzarella

1 cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese

8 figs- quartered

handful arugula


Preheat oven to 450 Fahrenheit, and let the dough rest on a floured surface for 20 minutes.

In a large skillet, sauté the onions in oil, over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, about 3 minutes. Lower heat to medium, and add a pinch of salt. Continue sautéing for 10 minutes or so until onions begin to caramelize and become soft. Add balsamic, honey, and pepper. Continue to cook for about 3-4 more minutes, until the balsamic reduces, set aside.

Divide the dough and stretch into 2 or 4 very thin ovals or rounds.

Rub each crust with smashed garlic, divide and sprinkle the cheeses, top with figs and onions place in the oven until the pizzas are cooked through, about 9-11 minutes.

Pull out from the oven and place your pizzas on a wooden board sprinkle with arugula and drizzle with more honey. Cut and serve immediately.
