Fig & Goat Cheese Pizza

Ingredients: 

For the crust:

  • 1 package Partake Pizza Crust Baking Mix
  • 1 cup water 
  • 2 tbsp olive oil 
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 packet active dry yeast (optional)

For the toppings:

  • 1 tbsp olive oil 
  • 2 oz goat cheese, crumbled
  • 6 figs, thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp honey 
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice

Instructions:

To make the pizza crust:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. 
  2. If using yeast, dissolve in a bowl with the cup of warm water. Let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes. If not using yeast, add water to bowl and move to next step.
  3. Stir in Partake mix, olive oil, and apple cider vinegar and form into a tight ball. Allow to sit for 10 minutes. 
  4. Roll dough out onto a flat surface, pressing out with oiled hands, and allow to sit for 10 more minutes. 
  5. Bake crust on a baking sheet or pizza pan for 12 minutes. (Do not place crust directly on oven rack.)

To assemble the pizza:

  1. After the crust has been baked for 12 minutes, spread cheese and figs on top. 
  2. Add thyme and a drizzle of olive oil all over the pizza. 
  3. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the pizza base is fully cooked and cheese is thoroughly melted. 
  4. Let pizza cool for 1-3 minutes, top with honey, lemon juice & enjoy!
