Fig Jam and Prosciutto Pizza

The expert chefs at Coletta have a special way of turning even the most ordinary dishes into something altogether extraordinary; such is the case with this delectable fig jam and prosciutto pizza!

With a beautiful blend of sweet and salty flavors, this pizza brings an unexpected level of boldness to the plate. Housemade fig jam and fresh mission figs introduce a surprising burst of sweetness, without the sugary sweetness of store-bought alternatives. A drizzle of aged balsamic vinegar enhances these already fresh flavors, adding another layer of depth to this dish.

Vegan “prosciutto” and a sprinkling of “parmesan” add all the saltiness one might expect in a traditional pizza, without the unnecessary meat or dairy. Finally, a layer of fresh baby arugula and a final touch of extra virgin olive oil tie the meal together.

You won’t soon forget this sweet, salty, peppery creation!

Toasted to perfection in a white-hot brick oven, the crust contains all the smokey, crispy flavor you should expect in a pizza of this caliber. Completely vegan, kosher-certified, and mouth-wateringly delicious, this pizza has something to offer every diner.

Fig Jam at Coletta

Instructions

  1. To start, prepare your pizza dough. If working from fresh, homemade dough, place it in the oven and cook roughly halfway, ensuring that you won’t overcook your ingredients as you wait for your dough to cook.
  2. Crush your garlic, and then finely mince. Stir the garlic, olive oil, and red pepper flakes (amount depending on personal preference) together. Drizzle this mixture over the surface of your pizza dough.
  3. Cut the artichoke hearts into quarters, and then lay them across the surface of your oiled pizza crust.
  4. Cut your red onion into thin slices. Sprinkle on top of your pizza crust, along with the chopped macadamia nuts and vegan mozzarella cheese.
  5. Carefully remove the seeds from your fresh jalapeno. Cut it into bite-sized pieces and sprinkle it across the surface of your pizza.
  6. Place the pizza in the oven at 400 degrees for around fifteen minutes, or until the edge of the crust is toasted to a golden brown.
  7. Remove the pizza from the oven and allow it to cool for around ten minutes before sprinkling it with chopped spinach. Without further ado, dig into your tasty creation!
