Prosciutto & Fig Pizza with Balsamic Reduction

photo 2

I don’t often put amounts in the ingredients list of pizza toppings because I feel like it’s a personal preference. Myself, I don’t like a lot of cheese, but some people like tons of cheese! So you can decide for yourself:)

Ingredients:

prosciutto

smoked gouda

Fig jam

fresh basil

1/3 c balsamic vinegar

Directions:

  1. Make your Sweet Potato Crust.
  2. While the crust is cooking make your balsamic reduction. Add your balsamic vinegar to a small sauce pan. Bring to a boil then reduce to low and let it cook till reduced to about half of the amount. Stir frequently and watch so it doesn’t burn. It will be a very sticky substance when its done.
  3. Remove the crust from the oven, spread fig jam over crust, top with grated cheese, slices of prosciutto and place it back in the oven until the cheese is melted (about 5-8 minutes)
  4. Finally, top with balsamic reduction and fresh basil.

*can also top with spinach!
