Pizza with figs & blue cheese

I love pizza. I simply can’t get enough of this delicious and genius food. Seriously you can vary it as crazy as you wish to. You can make all different kind of versions; gourmet, cheap, vegan, vegetarian, paleo, gluten free and even as a dessert pizza. It’s just madness if you do not love love love this wonderful dish.
Even though I could eat pizza all day every day (seriously I could) I always get extra cravings on friday night. I imagine myself with a big glass of red wine and a homemade pizza, Oh So Good! And the best part is that nobody says no to this kind of invitation, and pizza is so much better when you share it with friends and family, smile**

Fresh figs

I have a thing for an awesome Italian style pizza with lots of serrano, mozzarella, olives, artichokes, mozzarella, basil and of course homemade chinky tomato sauce. This version is the regular friday night dinner and I have troubles changing it for something else since it is so damn good. But last friday night I got this revelation, it happened when I saw this season’s first fresh figs at the marked and I became so excited that I bought a dozen, and instantly wanted to make all sorts of recipes with this lovely little fellow. So far I have made 3 awesome recipes, yay!
There’s just something magical about the combination of blue cheese and figs, and since I’m a serrano freak (you probably have noticed that already) I wanted to add this as well. Tomato sauce is a no-go with figs and blue cheese, so luckily I had a glass of my favorit garlic-basil oil  to spread across the pizza crust. It became a perfect pizza with a delicate combination of all flavors. Especially the sweet figs with the salty serrano and the blue cheese filled with umami and flavour really impressed my tastebuds. I almost can’t wait until next friday….and maybe I won’t :)
