Lighten up dinner with this easy, gourmet Fig & Prosciutto Pizza! Ready in about 20 minutes on the grill or in the oven, it’s perfect for summer!
You guys, I need to just say “your welcome!” Because today I have combined two of the four most awesome foods in life to create this beautiful summer Fig & Prosciutto Pizza topped with a bright and fresh baby arugula salad! Then I’ll add a second “you’re welcome” because this is a gourmet pizza you can have on the table in under twenty minutes!! While crock pot pizza is great, I love lighter thin-crust pizzas too, especially during the summer, and this prosciutto pizza is crazy good!

Not all pizza is created equal. I know you agree with me so we don’t need to discuss this particular point any further. I’m sure we can also agree that pizza is one of the better food inventions ever of all time. Followed closely by salad, ice cream, and chocolate of course!
Have y’all ever shopped at Cost Plus World Market?
I knew you were smart!
Well, I’m sure you’re still smart, but what are you doing?!
Okay, listen to me. Finish reading this awesome post, then get yourself over to Cost Plus World Market…
- For the ingredients needed to make this prosciutto pizza recipe.
- For one of the happiest shopping experiences, you will ever experience! We are talking about beautiful housewares, serving wares, and foods all in one peaceful, well-cultivated environment.
Every time I go to Cost Plus World Market in Tigard I find something I just have to have. Whether it’s Stroopwafels, new plates, and cocktail glasses, or fab accessories to dress up our house and patio I always leave with a treat for myself.
Traditionally pizza is topped with a marinara or even an alfredo sauce. While these sauces are beautiful and all things fabulous, for this fig & prosciutto pizza recipe I stepped outside the box and combined three big flavor ingredients for a nontraditional but seriously delicious sauce.
- Ricotta Cheese – Did you know you were making a two cheese pizza? Look at you, you gourmet chef! Wow, you’re amazing!
- Fig Spread – While fresh figs would be delightful in the recipe, putting the figs into the “sauce” simplifies the process and gives it a hint of sweetness that compliments the other summer pizza ingredients.
- Dipping Oil – Cost Plus World Market has a variety of wonderful dipping oils and I highly suggest you try them. For this prosciutto pizza, I used Garlic and Parmesan. Oh, what’s that?! You thought this was a two cheese pizza? Oh baby, this is a three cheese! You’re basically a professional pizza maker now.
But a great pizza is only the first step to a fantastic summer dinner. Having dinner at a gorgeous patio table that’s inviting and full of seasonal colors really sets the mood. I love the bright blues and ocean-inspired art on these plates from Cost Plus World Market for outdoor dining and entertaining! Pair them with a pretty table runner, textured charger, and simple flatware for a table setting you’ll want to sit down to all summer long!
