This flatbread is the food version of red wine! The fig jam brings out fruitiness while the Gorgonzola cheese and fresh herbs add a dimension of earthiness and an herbaceous quality. And lastly the thinly sliced prosciutto delivers a salty, savory dimension. The complexity of this dish really draws out and highlights the complexity of a well made red wine.

Ingredients

  • 2 x 12oz. balls of pizza dough, thawed and at room temperature.
