fancy frozen pizza makeover #2

Roasted Fig, Pickled Pepper, and Rosemary Balsamic Glaze Pizza - Recipe by Salt+Fat+Whiskey

I like to stock my freezer with those stupidly expensive organic frozen pizzas when I find them on sale. You know the ones, right? So freakin’ convenient, but for $10 a pop they aren’t all that tasty on their own.

However, on lazy nights, these frozen pies are my blank canvases. They make quick and dirty meals, always re-imagined with a magical (questionable?) hodgepodge of misfit ingredients from my fridge, garden, and pantry. When cooked on a nice hot pizza stone and handled with a wooden peel, who needs delivery?

For fun, I thought I’d start sharing these experiments! Here’s the next installment…

With five very prolific fig trees in my yard, every day becomes a new challenge to figure out how to use them. (I’m sorry. Bad puns are just too awesome.) This is definitely one of my favorite ways to highlight their gooey sweetness, complemented by a drizzle of rosemary balsamic honey glaze and spicy pickled peppers.

 

rosemary balsamic glaze

  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp dried or 1 spring fresh rosemary from the garden

Combine the honey and vinegar in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a slight bubble and allow to gently simmer for 5  minutes. Add the rosemary and simmer for another 3 to 5 minutes. If the heat is too high, you could see some scorching along the side of the pan. If that happens, turn down the heat. Test the thickening with the back of a spoon to be sure the viscosity is right for drizzling. Pour through a mesh strainer into a clean bottle. Drizzle liberally over pizza and just about anything else.
