Fig, Blue Cheese, Prosciutto, Caramelized Onion Pizza – Family Album Grenache

Last night was family dinner night. What is a better fun group activity than making pizza? Since figs were available in the market we put together this delicious pizza which pairs with the Family Album Grenache.

One large onion
Tablespoon of butter
Tablespoon of olive oil
3 slices prosciutto, cut in strips
5 fresh figs, quartered
2 ounces of blue cheese
Pizza dough – either purchased or home-made in the KitchenAid

Preheat a grill or preheat the oven to 450o.

Chop the onion. Heat the olive oil and butter in a pan. Add the onion to the pan and cook over low heat for about 30 minutes.

Roll out the pizza dough. Top with the caramelized onions, distribute the prosciutto and figs over the pizza. Sprinkle with blue cheese.

Cook on a preheated grill until done or in an oven preheated for 10 minutes.

Enjoy with a glass of Family Album Grenache.
