Grilled Fig and Balsamic Onion Pizza
Recipe for a Delightful Culinary Memory
We like to keep this grilled pizza recipe in our back pocket, it's perfect for this time of year when we’re in-between seasons. It’s super easy to make on the grill if you’re still bbq-ing in your neck of the woods or you can pop this pizza in the oven. The combo of the ripe figs we have available right now with the sweet balsamic onions and the salty cheese is just fantastic!
Going the grilling route makes this recipe perfect for cooking for a crowd. You can grill the dough before guests arrive and leave out uncovered. When you’re ready to eat simply assemble and throw on the grill for a few minutes and you’re good to go!
Once you master the dough part (we definitely recommend buying a little extra dough the first time you attempt to cook this recipe via bbq) you can even set up a build your own pizza bar for your guests.
A pizza bar is a great way to entertain that keeps the host from being stuck in the kitchen. Simply set up a station near the grill with pre-grilled dough in small sizes, and some sauces and toppings. We also like to include a few written recipes for our less culinary inclined guests.
This fig and balsamic onion pizza is always a surprise for our guests as some can be a bit skeptical about fruit on their pizza. But by keeping the pre-grilled crusts on the smaller side guests can dare to be more adventurous with their creations and give this delicious pizza a try.
For another surprising fruit forward delight, we also like to turn our balsamic peach canapés into a pizza by blending mozzarella with the brie and drizzling our MiaBella Balsamic Vinegar on top after it comes off the grill. We also like to do a Caprese pizza with fresh mozzarella, tomato, basil, and a drizzle of our MiaBella Traditional Balsamic Vinegar! Basically, we really like grilling pizzas especially when balsamic vinegar is involved.
